While we are enthusiastic about the new Volvo XC90, it does have some competition. Still, to ensure you make a decision that is best for you, we have laid out a few key differences between the XC90 and comparable models on the market.

The 2020 Volvo XC90 is most commonly compared to the Audi Q7, Acura MDX, and BMW X5. While all three other models rank in the line of luxury SUVs, we find that the Volvo XC90 has more to offer, let's take a look at what we love most about the XC90.


2020 Volvo XC90 vs. Audi Q7

While the Audi Q7 does showcase beautiful European design, it's engine can't match the power of the 2020 XC90. You'll not only be able to haul more from Puyallup to Tacoma, but torque is better transmitted to all four wheels for better handling and acceleration. The Volvo XC60 additionally offers new Adaptive Cruise Control that is not offered on the Audi Q7.

The Q7 and XC90 do have more similiters than that of the MDX. Both models offer In-Car Wi-Fi, navigation, Bluetooth, HD radio, Aux inputs and Satellite Radio.

When it comes to design features, the Volvo XC90 is proudly Scandinavian with sleek finished and custom diamond-cut touches that are unique to Volvo. We find that the large touchscreen display is better integrated into the dash and the overall aesthetic is more pleasing to the eye.


2020 Volvo XC90 vs. Acura MDX

If you are looking for a new SUV that is packed with ample technology, the 2020 Volvo XC90 is much more equipped than the Acura MDX. While both offer three rows of seating, you'll find more comfort as both a driver and passenger in the Volvo XC90, as well as more cargo space. The XC90 offers 47 cubic-feet while the Acura MDX only offers 43.4 cubic feet.

The 2020 Volvo XC90 comes with a 2.0-liter turbo I4 engine, and the Acura MDX comes with a 3.5-liter V6 engine. The XC90 engine might have less horsepower, but it does provide better fuel economy getting 25 MPG combined while the MDX only gets 23 MPG combined.


2020 Volvo XC90 vs. BMW X5

The final comparison is to the BMW X5. You'll love the lower price point of the Volvo XC90 as well as the better fuel efficiency.

The BMW X5 scored a lower safety rating of only four stars in both overall safety ratings and frontal crash ratings. The 2020 XC90 scored a five-star rating in both! Both City Safety and Run-Off Road Mitigation come standard on the XC90.

Both models come equipped with Apple CarPlay, touchscreens and connective features, but the catch is you'll have to pay thousands of dollars more for the same features if you opt for the BWM X5.


When it comes to luxury three-row SUVs for sale near Bellevue, the Volvo XC90 has been a family favorite here at Volvo of Tacoma at Fife.
