The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.4
7.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2009 Volvo XC90 is a sport-utility vehicle done the Swedish way: with a clean design and an emphasis on safe, all-weather driving, instead of flashiness or brute strength. The 2008 Volkswagen Touareg has more toughness than most mid-size SUVs for heavy-duty towing and off-road needs yet on-the-road comfort doesn’t suffer.
