    Expert Rating

    4.8 (Excellent)
    21 City / 25 Highway

    Unlike other websites and magazines, our ratings are not based solely on a singular road test, but rather a more encompassing batch of criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value. When comparing vehicles using our Rating System, it's important to note that the rating earned by each vehicle correlates only to the models within its class. For example, a compact car cannot be compared to a SUV—They are different vehicles altogether.

    You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

    5-Star: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.

    4-Star: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

    3-Star: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

    2-Star: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

    1-Star: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.

    2017 Volvo XC90 OVERVIEW

    The Volvo XC90 is a two- or three-row midsize SUV, the largest such vehicle sold by this automaker. It is the first Volvo model to offer a plug-in hybrid variant along with turbocharged gasoline models. The 2017 XC90 offers room for up to seven passengers.

    What's New for 2017

    An all-new top-of-the-line Excellence model debuts, the first six-figure Volvo model. Other changes this year include additional apps for its infotainment system and an updated driver assistance system.

    Choosing Your Volvo XC90

    One year removed from the introduction of an all-new model, the 2017 XC90 continues to garner praise and awards from industry critics. Importantly, it is also the best-selling Volvo model, easily outpacing the compact XC60 SUV.

    Shoppers considering the base T5 model have a choice of standard front-wheel or available all-wheel drive. Momentum and R-Design trims are available.

    The all-wheel drive T6 edition and the T8 Plug-in Hybrid are offered in Momentum, R-Design, and Inscription packages. The range-topping Excellence is available in one trim.

    All T5 models are powered by a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine making 240 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. This model is rated at 22 mpg in the city and 26 mpg on the highway for front-wheel drive and 22 mpg in the city and 25 mpg on the highway for the all-wheel drive version.

    The XC90 T6 is powered by a turbocharged and supercharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine making 316 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque. This model makes an EPA-estimated 20 mpg in the city and 25 mpg on the highway. Both gasoline engines are paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission.

    The all-wheel drive XC90 T8 PHEV and Excellence models offer the supercharged and turbocharged engine with electrification. This model produces 400 horsepower and 472 pound-feet of torque and makes an EPA-estimated 54 MPGe.

    Standard equipment includes 18-inch alloy wheels, keyless entry, a power liftgate, front collision mitigation support, lane keeping assist, and rear park assist. Also standard is a panoramic sunroof with a power sunshade, 10-way power front seats with lumbar support, navigation, a high-performance audio package, and a rearview camera.

    Volvo XC90


    If you never imagined a six-figure Volvo, think again. The XC90 Excellence package pulls out all the stops. Based on the T8 Plug-In Hybrid, this model places the emphasis on luxury. It also offers only four seating positions. Volvo prices the 2017 XC90 Excellence from $105,895 (destination included).

    All four seats are the same, upholstered with perforated fine Nappa leather. Other standout features include a rear cooling compartment beverage cooler, and a special rear seat console.

    CarsDirect Tip

    Even if you don’t usually need the extra seats, the three-row T6 model is useful for those times you’re in a pinch and need additional passenger carrying room. Regardless, this model offers a generous 85.7 cubic feet of maximum cargo capacity behind the first row.
