Why Choose the Volvo XC90 Over the Competition?

To an outside perspective, the luxury SUV field can seem like it's full of competition. With so many SUVs to choose from, determining which one would be the best fit for your life can be a difficult process.

Rather than endlessly checking websites to compare luxury SUVs, Volvo Cars Princeton has compiled a comparison between the many luxury SUVs and the Volvo XC90. By comparing the Volvo XC90 to the rest of the competition, you'll see that this luxury SUV trumps all others.


When you shop for the Volvo XC90 near Philadelphia, you'll discover that you have plenty of options. With a choice between gas-powered engines and a plug-in hybrid powertrain, you can customize your Volvo experience to your liking.

With the T6 all-wheel drive powertrain, you can experience exceptional performance with 316 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque. The Volvo XC90 Recharge, on the other hand, achieves 400 horsepower and 472 pound-feet of torque.

In addition to incredible performance, other luxury SUVs like the Audi Q7, can't compare to the fuel economy of the Volvo XC90. The standard Volvo XC90 can get up to 30 miles per gallon, whereas the Volvo XC90 Recharge can get up to 55 miles per gallon and a driving range of up to 520 miles in a single tank of gas.

Compare these numbers to another luxury SUV available near Trenton, like the 2021 Mercedes-Benz GLE 350 with up to 26 miles per gallon, and it's clear that the Volvo XC90 reigns supreme no matter the powertrain you choose.


No matter where you go, whether it's down the street from your home in Cherry Hill or on your commute to work in Princeton, your Volvo XC90 will do its best to keep you safe. Compared to other luxury SUVs, like the BMW X5, the Volvo XC90 actually comes with many standard driver assistance features.

Whereas many luxury SUVs see fit to leave many safety features optional, the Volvo XC90 includes these advanced safety features as standard pieces of technology. And while many other luxury SUVs, like the Lexus RX350, only include active safety warnings, the Volvo XC90 rises above the rest with a suite of standard active safety features.

If you want you and your passengers to feel at ease with a wide variety of safety features, then be sure to check out the Volvo XC90 for sale near Morrisville.
