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
Elegant interior and exterior styling
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
Comes up short in performance and real-world fuel economy
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.

Pros
First-rate cabin materials
Spacious seating and cargo areas
Many standard tech and safety features

Cons
Poor predicted reliability rating
Tepid performance from base engine
Jittery ride when equipped with larger wheels

The 2018 Nissan Rogue may not be very exciting, but it checks all the right boxes—and then some—for most family needs.

Pros
Lots of standard safety tech
Can drive itself, at least a little
Great interior space utilization
Rides well
Optional hybrid

Cons
Light on power
Transmission drones on and on
Hardly fun to drive
Base model looks very basic
Hybrid’s not that thrifty

The 2018 Nissan Rogue ranked #10 in Compact SUVs. Currently the Nissan Rogue has a score of 8.1 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 44 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Upscale interior
Spacious, versatile cargo area
Top-tier gas mileage
Lots of advanced safety features, even in base model

Cons
Underpowered engine
Noisy transmission

By:

For most uses — commuter, family and recreational — we'd recommend the SV trim with the optional Premium package. The latter adds useful features such as a surround-view camera system, navigation and a power liftgate. You also get some of the SL trim's more desirable items without the larger wheels that can detract from the ride quality.

PROS
Front seats are comfortable on long drives
Ride quality remains comfortable over varying terrain
Tech options and features are user-friendly
Cargo space is vast and versatile

CONS
Outward visibility is poor
Transmission responds slowly and with an annoying "surge" feeling
Acceleration is weak and listless
