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.

Pros

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
Overly busy ride quality for a vehicle in its class

Some touchscreen controls can be hard to use

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.

The 2020 Cadillac XT5 comes with all wheel drive, and front wheel drive. Available transmissions include: 9-speed shiftable automatic.New Sport trim; base XT5 trim renamed Luxury.2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine now standard on lower trims.Infotainment interface is all-new.

Pros
Combines a soft, pleasant ride with athletic handling
Generous interior space is more than most rivals
Seats are built for long-haul comfort

Cons
Small windows and mirrors make it hard to see out of the back
Desirable option packages can drive the price up in a hurry
Odd design choices impinge on usability

By:

For 2020, Cadillac gives the XT5 a mild makeover that's immediately apparent from its new bumpers, grille design, and wheel options. The other changes include a newly standard turbocharged four-cylinder that joins the V-6 as the only engine choices. The lineup is now headlined by the Sport model that replaces the old Platinum moniker. However, the latter becomes an option package that adds more technology and top-of-the-line interior appointments. The Sport model has a specially tuned suspension and steering system that attempt to increase driver engagement.

Pros
Quiet interior, distinctive exterior styling, spacious cargo bay.

Cons
Somewhat gruff V-6 powertrain, muddled driving dynamics, busy interior design.
