2018 Volvo XC60 vs 2018 Volvo XC90: Compare Cars

Volvo’s compact and mid-size crossover SUVs are like nesting dolls. The three-row 2018 Volvo XC90 looks like it could open up and swallow the five-seat 2018 Volvo XC60.

Both are among our favorite family transporters, for mostly the same reasons. Their understated style perks up any driveway, while a high level of safety gear comes at a surprise given these crossovers’ relatively reasonable price tags.

TCC’s Bottom Line
With the new 2018 XC60, Volvo has cached all the XC90’s good data, and trimmed some fat from its code. The 2018 Volvo XC90 is the crossover success that brought new buyers into the brand. Its mix of good looks and excellent tech make it a major player now.
