The 2020 Volvo XC90 Hybrid comes with all wheel drive. Available transmissions include: 8-speed automatic.Lightly refreshed exterior design.Six-seat option available for T6 and T8 Momentum and Inscription models.Digital driver display and road sign identification now standard.Expected increase in EV range for T8 plug-in hybrid.

Precise handling that inspires confidence
Spacious second- and third-row seating for a midsize SUV
Many standard safety technology features
Available as a plug-in hybrid

Cons

The XC90 receives a visual freshening for 2020 by way of a new grille and front bumper; Volvo also has restyled the XC90's wheels. Base Momentum models now come with low-profile roof rails and integrated tailpipes while sporty R-Design models swap matte silver exterior trim for gloss black. All XC90 models now come standard with a 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster, R-Design and Inscription trims gain front parking sensors as standard, and Volvo has tweaked the operation of both the rear cross-traffic alert feature and added active-steering support for the City Safety driver-assistance feature.

Pros
Sleek exterior, chic cabin, a plethora of standard driver-assistance features.

Cons
Unrefined engine sounds, flinty ride, laggy infotainment response upon startup.

Pros
Drives well,
comfortable,
high-quality. Not as compromised as you might think

Cons
Still a bit compromised. Plus it's pricier.

The Q4 e-tron and Q4 e-tron Sportback are all-new models for 2022. They join the larger e-tron SUVs and the racy e-tron GT sedan in Audi's fast-growing electric-vehicle lineup. With a base price of $44,995, the Q4 e-tron is actually cheaper to start than the gasoline-powered Q5 SUV. We recommend the more powerful 295-hp 50 model, but those who prefer a coupe-like look to their SUV can opt for the swoopier Sportback model, which is offered with the same dual-motor all-wheel-drive powertrain setup.
