The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.2
8.4
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2014 Volvo XC90 is a luxurious, smart choice for families with priorities on safety and comfort, though it isn't exactly cutting-edge anymore. The 2014 BMW X5 lightens up its look and its act with a warmer cabin, lots of techno handling tricks, and standout safety gear.
