2022 Volvo XC90 vs. Its Competition

2022 Volvo XC90
Martin Padgett Martin Padgett Editorial Director

The Audi Q7, BMW X7, and Mercedes-Benz GLS-Class are the big three in this segment, all offering three rows of seating, impressive luxury and tech features, and trademark German quality for a premium over other brands.

Acura has a new MDX and it’s a knockout, with exceptional styling and a new higher-performance model, the Type S.

The Lexus RX is the most popular option of the bunch, but many are turned off by its bold styling and lack of performance chops.

Its third-row seat is laughably small, too.
