The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.4
8.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2010 Volvo XC90 has aged gracefully and now is more feature-packed than ever; however, its poor fuel economy tarnishes an otherwise superb vehicle. The 2011 Volkswagen Touareg has dropped some of its ruggedness in favor of the comfort suburban families want—but it's still not quite a rival to luxury-brand utes.
