2011 Volvo XC90 Fuel Economy

5.0
Fuel Economy
If fuel economy and carbon emissions are your primary gauges of a green vehicle, as they should be, the six-cylinder and V-8 powertrains in the Volvo XC90 fail to impress, or even match the average numbers in this class.

V-8 fuel economy has risen to 14 mpg city, 21 highway for 2011, but numbers with the six-cylinder remain an unimpressive 16 mpg city. Among crossovers, you can do much better: Examples include the 2011 Lexus RX 450h or Mercedes-Benz ML350 Bluetec.
