The 2017 Volvo XC90 and the 2017 BMW X5 are large luxury utility vehicles for buyers offering European cachet with all-wheel-drive hauling capacity. Each was its maker's first-ever crossover SUV years ago, and both have refinement, handling, and features unimaginable in older SUVs.
While the big Volvo was new last year, the BMW is now in its fourth model year. Each is among our highest-rated premium SUVs. The Volvo starts just below $50,000, while the BMW is about $5,000 higher. Top-level versions of each run above $70,000. So which is the right one for you?
