Expert Quotes:

16 mpg city, 22 highway (six-cylinder); 14/21 (V-8)

a 3.2 averaged 16.0 mpg in mostly city driving. A test V8 averaged 15.6 mpg in mostly city driving
Consumer Guide

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.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
