Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

Volvo makes a number of minor changes to the 2021 XC90 lineup. Every model now comes standard with front parking sensors, LED headlights that turn with the steering wheel, high-pressure headlight washers, wireless charging, two USB-C ports on the back of the center console, and the company's Care Key, which allows an owner to set limitations on the vehicle's top speed. The plug-in-hybrid T8 is now branded with the Recharge moniker..

Pros
Stunning styling inside and out,
impressive list of features,
quick plug-in hybrid.

Cons
Coarse-sounding gas engines,
harsh ride on rough roads,
plug-in hybrid isn't as efficient as rivals.

Low-key luxury lies in the 2021 Volvo XC90’s serene cockpit, in its strong acceleration, and in its gray-wool confines.

Pros
Proudly Scandinavian, inside and out
Simple and sophisticated interior
Tablet-like touchscreen
Lots of models and trims
Great safety record and standard active tech

Cons
Base powertrain lacks potency
Some flimsy materials in the cabin
Not a performance SUV

Hybrid powertrain provides strong acceleration and high fuel economy
Many standard safety tech features

CONS
Some touchscreen controls can be hard to use
Voice controls don't recognize natural speech very well

The 2021 Tesla Model Y's #7 ranking is based on its score within the Luxury Hybrid and Electric SUVs category. Currently the Tesla Model Y has a score of 7.6 out of 10, which is based on our evaluation of 15 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Quick and agile
Spacious, comfortable seats
Good cargo capacity

Cons
No physical controls for vehicle functions
Poor cabin assembly quality
Apple CarPlay and Android Auto not available

By: 
usnews.com

Introduced, and then discontinued, Standard Range version.Seven-seat configuration now available.

Pros
Plenty of range
Stunning acceleration, especially from the Performance model
Convenient Supercharger network for long-distance driving
Roomy seating front and rear

Cons
No Apple CarPlay or Android Auto smartphone integration
Performance model's overly stiff ride
Optional third row of seats is barely usable

By: 
edmunds.com

Other than the introduction of an optional pair of pop-up third-row jump seats, we aren't forecasting any major design or technology upgrades for the Model Y this year.

Pros
Peppy electric powertrain,
spacious cargo hold,
cutting-edge technology features.

Cons
Chassis isn't as taut as the four-door Model 3,
fit-and-finish needs polish,
too reliant on the touchscreen for simple vehicle settings.
