2020 Volvo XC90 Review

Step into most any modern luxury car and you'll find a cabin with enough buttons and switches to make an airline pilot feel right at home. In contrast, the 2020 Volvo XC90 offers a simple, elegant interior that exemplifies the minimalist Swedish design ethos. It's a refreshing approach that helps set the XC90 apart from other three-row SUVs.

The unusual cabin design isn't the only thing that differentiates the Volvo XC90. While some rivals offer a range of powerful (but thirsty) V6 and V8 engines, the XC90 is driven exclusively by a turbocharged four-cylinder engine. There are three versions, which Volvo dubs T5, T6 and T8. The T5's 250 horsepower is a little underwhelming, but the T6's 300 hp and the T8's 400 hp are certainly satisfying.

The XC90 isn't perfect, however. The minimalist design means most of the vehicle's functions are accessible in the infotainment screen, and the layout isn't the most intuitive. We also take issue with half-baked voice controls that fail to recognize points of interest. Technology missteps aside, the XC90 is one of the better choices in the segment. This year's improvements to the suspension and T8 hybrid's brake pedal make recommending the Volvo XC90 easier than ever.

Which XC90 does Edmunds recommend?

The base turbocharged four-cylinder is the least expensive of the bunch, but we're skeptical of its ability to effortlessly carry seven people and luggage. And while the T8 is the most powerful, it also adds quite a bit to the bottom line. The T6 is just right. While the Momentum has a lengthy list of standard features, we think buyers should upgrade for the true luxury experience. Either of the two upper trims is worth the extra money — it comes down to personal preference between the sport-themed R-Design and the luxurious Inscription.

Volvo XC90 models

The 2020 Volvo XC90 is a luxury SUV with two seating configurations and three trim levels: Momentum, R-Design and Inscription. Three engine choices of increasing power are offered for most trim levels, named T5, T6 and T8 eAWD Plug-in Hybrid. The T5 is available in either a front- or all-wheel-drive configuration, while the other drivetrains come with all-wheel drive. Seating for seven is standard, though the T6 and T8 powertrains in Momentum or Inscription trims can have a six-seat configuration with second-row captain's chairs.

The base Momentum comes with 19-inch wheels, LED lighting, a panoramic sunroof, roof rails, a power tailgate, rear parking sensors, keyless entry and ignition, premium vinyl upholstery, four-zone automatic climate control, heated washer nozzles, power front seats, driver-seat memory settings, 40/20/40-split second-row seats (with individual slide and recline functions), a 50/50-split third-row seat, and an auto-dimming rearview mirror.

Technology features include Pilot Assist driving aids (includes adaptive cruise control and lane centering assist), blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, lane keeping assist, an oncoming-traffic lane mitigation system, a 9-inch central touchscreen, a Wi-Fi hotspot, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, and a 10-speaker sound system with satellite radio and two USB ports.

The T5 uses a turbocharged 2.0-liter engine (250 horsepower, 258 lb-ft of torque) and an eight-speed automatic transmission. Either front- or all-wheel drive is available, and opting for the latter adds heated front seats.

The T6 upgrades to a supercharged and turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine (316 hp, 295 lb-ft) and all-wheel drive. This powertrain adds heated front seats, navigation and leather upholstery to the Momentum trim level.

The T8 eAWD Plug-in Hybrid uses the same engine as the T6 but adds an 87-hp electric motor and battery. Total output is 400 hp and 472 lb-ft of torque. A 240-volt Level 2 charger can fill the battery in about 2.5 hours, providing 18 miles of pure electric driving. The T8 comes with an 11-speaker audio system and a tire repair kit in lieu of a temporary spare and tools.

The R-Design trim level is largely a sporty appearance package, adding 20-inch wheels and different exterior and interior design elements. It also offers front parking sensors, paddle shifters, ambient lighting, upgraded sport seats (with power thigh support), premium leather upholstery, a Harman Kardon premium sound system, navigation and rear window shades.

The Inscription is available on the T6 and the T8. It's similar to the R-Design but features its own wheel, interior and exterior trim designs. It reverts to the Momentum's seats but adds power cushion extension, side support and ventilation for the front seats, along with upgraded leather upholstery all around.

Most options are grouped into packages. The Advanced package — available on all trims — adds adaptive headlights, headlight washers, a top-view parking system, front parking sensors, and a head-up display. An automated parking assist function is optional in conjunction with this package. The Inscription-only Luxury package adds a heated steering wheel, front seat massage, heated rear seats, a simulated suede headliner, and leather grab handles and sun visors.

Individual option highlights depend on trim level and include an adaptive air suspension (with adaptive dampers), a heated steering wheel, blended wool upholstery, a built-in second-row child booster seat, a 19-speaker Bowers & Wilkins audio system, and 20-, 21- or 22-inch wheels.

T5 Momentum 4dr SUV (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 8A)

I've the 2019 T5 bought brand new now at 6000mi (I commute by train thus few miles in car) and what a truly superb luxury SUV. I got it namely for seating 7 and stellar renowned safety with style, but all of the owner experience has been immaculate. The buying was a special remotely arranged one to avoid the typically horrifying day of haggling and lies at the dealership, but I went with overseas delivery to have no-haggle pricing and a preferred buying experience. The customization to my needs and wants was complete. Seller communications were completely confidence increasing and the ownership experience has been even better. The app literally does it all with remote start, warming, monitoring, security, logs, and everything with the same distinctly full Volvo design and style cues. The Swedish ideals of just enough ("lagom") are seen with just 1 screen and 6 buttons on the console. The famous Sensus system's speed, full integration, and immense central pleasure enhance the lovely seats, spacious airy cabin, panorama sunroof (standard!), lovely finishings, and clearly superior build quality. Drive experience is great inside the city where we live and outside where we go bi-weekly. The power is snappy and significant with torque available even at highway speeds from the 2.0L turbo-charged engine mated to 10-speed transmission. Finely self-tuning drivetrain smartness adds to the immense amounts of smartness everywhere to entertainment to seamless security (all the fancy stuff quickly becoming widely available in other makes and makers) to the aforementioned app. It's a superb vehicle.

4 out of 5 stars, Great car but but significant room for improvement

T6 Momentum 4dr SUV AWD (2.0L 4cyl Twincharger 8A)

Car drives great, could use a little more power, maybe a V6 (I have the T6). Some design features arent the greatest - could use a few more buttons instead of a tablet, microscopic cup holders in a family vehicle? Visibility is horrendous when merging right due to the headrest in the second row. The Park assist is a fun gadget but not practical to use in real life. Pilot assist is buggy and is hair raisingly scary if used on roads with traffic lights or on roads where the lines are even slightly ambiguous. Best to keep it for highways. The tablet looks Tesla like but is not the most practical to control air etc when you are driving.Hands free Tailgate is quite poorly designed and takes a while to get used to. The child booster seat is pretty well designed though.Wish rear sunshades were an option. Why doesnt a 62k_ car have power tilt and telescopic steering and more controls on the seats.

Updated after 6 months - car drives well and no technical problems but I’ve put in just 2k miles. Volvo needs to add practical features like bigger cup holders, power tilt and telescoping steering, more storage, sun glasses holder etc. love the drive but interior design leaves a lot to be desired.

T8 Inscription Twin Engine Plug-In Hybrid 4dr SUV AWD (2.0L 4cyl Twincharger gas/electric hybrid 8A)

We bought the XC90 T8 6 Seat Inscription. So much has changed since our 2013 XC90 was manufactured. Compared to the previous interior, Volvo has truly stepped up the design and you now feel like you’re in a true luxury car. The seats are very comfortable, the leather is supple and the inlays and trim are elegant. The shift knob is made of Swedish Crystal which is an elegant touch. The exterior styling is, in my opinion, at the top of the competitors...not to rounded off and not too boxy. The grill has been refreshed slightly and looks elegant without being too gaudy like some other manufacturers. Pure electric mode gives me a range of over 20 miles which is perfect for trips to the store and back or to drop off the kids at school. Compared to solely electric cars, acceleration is sluggish in pure electric mode. Put it in hybrid mode and it is remarkably quick. The primary reason I bought this car was to keep my family safe. Google the independent crash tests by IIHS and compare to the BMW or Audi and you can see for yourself the design of the XC90 is safer. Volvo also has a marketing video touting the engineering that went into making this the safest SUV in the road. I’ve owned Audi’s, BMW’s and Lexus vehicles and this is, hands down, the best car I’ve owned. It perfectly balances styling, eco-driving, and comfort without making a sacrifice for safety. The only negative I will mention is the passenger cup holders in the six seat configuration seem like an afterthought and will likely be broken by my kids...but that should not stop anyone from seriously considering the 2020 XC90.

Volvo XC90 vs. the competition

Volvo XC90 vs. Audi Q7

Like the XC90, the Audi Q7 is a midsize luxury SUV with lots of safety and tech features and a third row best reserved for kids. Like the XC90, we recommend skipping the base four-cylinder engine and upgrading to the optional engine (in this case, a supercharged V6) for the extra passing authority on the highway. There's no clear winner here, though we prefer the Audi's infotainment interface.

Compare Volvo XC90 & Audi Q7 features

Volvo XC90 vs. Volvo XC60

If you don't need the XC90's third row of seats, you can save quite a bit of money by going with the smaller XC60 instead. It still has plenty of cargo and passenger room, and powertrain and equipment levels are quite similar to the XC90. Interior design and materials are shared between the two, so you don't necessarily get a less luxurious SUV by going with the more affordable option.

Compare Volvo XC90 & Volvo XC60 features

Volvo XC90 vs. Acura MDX

The Acura MDX doesn't offer as many choices as the XC90, and the Acura's cabin design isn't as elegant. However, its standard V6 packs more power than the XC90's T5 engine while getting nearly identical fuel estimates. The MDX's third row is slightly more adult-friendly too. But we like the Volvo's infotainment system a little more than the MDX's confusing and slow two-screen setup.

The 2020 Volvo XC90 T8 Is a Better Plug-In Hybrid

Small Changes Make a Big Difference

Will Kaufman by Will Kaufman , Content Strategist and News EditorAugust 25th, 2019

What is it?

Volvo's big SUV, the three-row XC90, was the first vehicle to show off the company's latest design language when it debuted back in 2016. It's a testament to how thoughtful Volvo was that the design hasn't started to feel old or outdated. But in spite of its understated luxury and comfort, the XC90 has admittedly had some flaws, especially the T8 plug-in hybrid.

When we tested an XC90 T8 in 2016, we were disappointed with both the braking and the ride comfort, and we weren't the only ones to express reservations on those fronts. It seems like Volvo got the message. The 2020 Volvo XC90 receives a much-needed freshening, with most of the changes focused on the PHEV's dynamics.

First, Volvo rethought the braking system in order to provide smoother stops and a more natural pedal feel. It also revised the suspension for the T8 to improve ride quality. Finally, it increased battery capacity to 11.6 kWh, which we're told should add a few extra miles of all-electric driving range.

The other big change for 2020 is the addition of a six-passenger configuration, with second-row captain's chairs in place of a bench seat. This layout is meant to ease access to the third row and provide a bit more space for passengers back there to stretch their legs. The six-passenger XC90 is also set up to accommodate child booster seats in the third row, expanding seating flexibility when traveling with kids.

Oh, and the crystal shift knob in the Inscription trim has been redesigned. It looks neat.

Why does it matter?

Competition in the luxury three-row segment has never been hotter, and as new competitors appear on the market and old nameplates are refreshed, more and more brands are adding electrified options in the space. Overall, the XC90 is aging well, but the changes for 2020 will definitely help keep it competitive. Improving the dynamics of the plug-in T8 was especially important because the PHEV serves as not only the more efficient XC90 model but also the most powerful.

What does it compete with?

The non-hybrid XC90 faces off against a plethora of strong contenders, from the excellent Audi Q7 to newly introduced competitors such as the Lincoln Aviator. The Aviator also appears in the small but growing field of three-row luxury PHEVs, alongside the BMW X5 xDrive45e. Volvo previously had this space almost to itself in the U.S., but now that there's competition, it's good to see that Volvo's not standing still.

How does it drive?

In our time with the 2020 Volvo XC90 T8, it seemed as though Volvo's revisions have paid off. The brakes certainly felt more natural, and it was much easier to execute a smooth stop. If you're paying attention, you can still feel the transition from regenerative to mechanical braking in the seat of your pants, but it doesn't seem like the issue it once was.

The ride, likewise, felt a bit more compliant and a bit less busy. We'll have to see if changes impact the XC90's position in our SUV rankings when we get one in for our full battery of tests. But at first blush, Volvo seems to have nudged the XC90 T8 in the right direction.

What's the interior like?

The interior continues to provide a pleasantly designed environment of understated luxury. Volvo's seats are excellent, and the second-row captain's chairs are no exception. Our tester didn't have fold-down armrests on the second-row seats, which we would have appreciated, but otherwise its cabin was an eminently pleasant place to spend a couple of hours.

How practical is it?

The six-seat variant offers better practicality with its increased seating flexibility and third-row access. Unless you really need the extra seat, the six-passenger XC90 is the way to go. Cargo space is average for the segment — usable but not exceptional.

What else should I know?

The XC90 is available via Volvo's Care By Volvo subscription service, which includes insurance and maintenance in its monthly price. Volvo is working to expand Care By Volvo and make it easier to get approved and start a subscription through its smartphone app.

Edmunds says

Thanks to thoughtful updates for 2020, the Volvo XC90 T8 merits fresh consideration alongside the latest crop of electrified family haulers.

Should I lease or buy a 2020 Volvo XC90?

Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
