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
