Consumer Guide




The 2013 Volvo XC90 is neither particularly fuel-efficient nor a gas-guzzler. Based on 2012 figures, the XC90’s fuel economy is listed at 16/23 mpg city/highway, and 19 mpg combined, though we've noticed those figures can easily deteriorate with even a little hard driving.

Opting for the all-wheel-drive model sees no drop in the EPA figures, and we recommend it for this system's excellent snowy-weather ability.

But if one of your top priorities is excellent mileage, you might want to steer over to the likes of the Lexus RX 450h or Mercedes-Benz ML 350 BlueTEC; both of those models go significantly further per gallon while offering a comparable amount of space (though neither has three-row seating).

Conclusion

The 2013 Volvo XC90 is more efficient than larger truck-based luxury SUVs, but it's no greener than other carlike crossovers.

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.
