2019 Volvo XC90 vs. Its Competition

2019 Volvo XC90
Martin Padgett Martin Padgett Editorial Director

With its three rows of seating and sometimes six-figure price tag, the 2019 Volvo XC90 has a wide range of competitors, but most are among the many midsize luxury SUVs available.

The Audi Q7 offers impressive tech, style, and build quality, while the Mercedes-Benz GLE-Class and BMW X5 have both been redesigned to get a leg back up on the Volvo.

Acura’s MDX is a serious value play and offers an impressive hybrid model like the Volvo.

If you’re looking for near-luxury features and loads of style at even more of a discount over the XC90, add the Mazda CX-9 to your shopping list.
