Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

Our starry-eyed devotion to the XC90 isn’t complete, though. Its forced-induction powertrains are a little rougher than the silky V-6s we’re accustomed to in this segment, and harsh impacts occasionally jostle the cabin despite the suspension’s best efforts. Still, it’s a dynamically sound, luxurious, and slightly outré approach to family-size luxury, and the package is nearly perfect.

Pros
Astonishingly beautiful,
solid driving dynamics,
safety by Volvo.

Cons
Can approach starter-home prices,
minor powertrain flaws,
base trim lacks the lineup’s best features.

The 2018 Volvo XC90 is the crossover success that brought new buyers into the brand. Its mix of good looks and excellent tech make it a major player now.

Pros
Impressive standard safety features
Beautiful interior
Very good infotainment system
Wide range of trim choices
Sharp exterior

Cons
We’re not sold on six-figure top models
Base powertrain lacks passing power
Second and third row seats could use more padding
One isn’t in our driveway now

By:

For 2018, the Volvo XC90 gets some additional equipment as standard such as adaptive cruise control and blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto (previously optional) are now standard as well.

PROS
Elegant styling inside and out
Precise handling that inspires confidence
Spacious second- and third-row seating for a midsize SUV
Many standard safety technology features

CONS
Some of the standard touchscreen controls can be hard to use
Comes up short on performance and real-world fuel economy
Overly busy ride quality for a vehicle in its class

The 2018 Chevrolet Traverse gets a much needed makeover that helps make the big crossover look more premium this time around.

Pros
Bolder style
More upscale exterior
New High Country trim
Efficient 9-speed automatic

Cons
Cargo room is comparable to last gen
How will turbo-4 power work?
Where does Tahoe fit?
Interior a little bland

By:

We think the LT Cloth with the Convenience and Driver Confidence package (which is standard on the all-wheel-drive version) will give you everything you need. Between the LT's basic upgrades and the option package's suite of useful safety features, the LT Cloth strikes a good balance between cost and livability.

Pros
Generous room for passengers in all three rows
Feature-rich standard infotainment system

Cons
Some safety features only available on top trims

By:

Lots of standard tech
Spacious cargo area
Carlike handling and ride quality

Cons
Unexciting driving dynamics
