2019 Volvo XC90 Price, Review, Ratings and Pictures

The 2019 Volvo XC90 is the epitome of an overachiever showcasing an impressive technological front, great practicality, and potent powertrain options, which include the standard turbocharged 2.0L Inline-4 engine, and the twin-charged 2.0L engine too. With that being said, not much has changed in the exterior looks department of the XC90, since 2016. Now with just an $800 price hike from the 2021 XC90 iteration, Volvo introduces major feature changes in the form of packages. The Advanced package enters the territory, having replaced both the Convenience and Momentum Plus packages. Now while the entire trim lineup gets updated infotainment software, and four-zone climate control as standard, the higher R-Design and Inscription trims are privy to a Harmon/ Kardon sound system and a tailored dashboard amongst other things.


2019 Volvo XC90 For Sale-

The 2019 Volvo XC90 starts at an MSRP of $47,700 for the base T5 Momentum trim, while the top-end T8 Excellence plug-in hybrid trim will set you back by an MSRP of $104,900. Now if you're in the Used car market, the average listing price of the 2019 XC90 ranges from $35,900 to $55,500, depending on the SUV's condition, mileage, location, and other major listing factors. Further great deals can also be had, with monthly installment estimates as low as up to $1,009/ month for a good pre-certified used 2019 XC90.

2019 Volvo XC90 Buying Advice-

If sportier features are on your list when buying an SUV, the 2019 XC90 T6 R-Design should seem to do the trick for you. It gets 20-inch wheels and a sports steering wheel with shift paddles. While this is on the upper end of the spectrum, the 2019 XC90 T6 Momentum AWD, for a price of $56,300, should also suffice, as it does get a lot of the latest creature comforts as standard. If you're considering an older XC90 model, do check out the 2016 MY, and the 2018 XC90, as both of them did get a full top-to-bottom major update. Volvo also offers a pre-owned certified program with an unlimited mileage warranty and various other eligibility factors, which should help you while buying an old SUV.

The luxury midsize SUV segment is packed with a number of great SUVs, which aside from their competitive price tags are better than the Swedish luxury offering in one way or another. On sale, the 2019 XC90 might fare better on the safety quotient front and also on the impressively crafted interior front, but when it comes to outright acceleration and performance figures, the BMW X5's 335 hp V6 engine, allows it to accelerate a whole 2.5 seconds faster than the XC90 from 0-60 MPH. The Mercedes-Benz GLE is also a better option when it comes to providing a cushier ride on rougher roads, and also while taking reliability into account.

Expert Review, Pricing Analysis and Buying Guide

When it comes to three-row luxury SUVs you will find various great choices that are focused on something specific. But the 2019 Volvo XC90 is one of the few which comes as a complete package. Not only does it look stunning but also comes with tons of technology and top-shelf quality and luxury. The XC90 features powerful yet frugal powertrains and the cabin has enough space to accommodate the entire family and their luggage rather comfortably.

Available in different engine configurations, the level of comfort and driving experience this SUV provides offers some serious competition to rivals such as BMW X5, Audi Q7, and Mercedes Benz GLE-Class. The SUV is mechanically unchanged for the 2019 model year with only minor feature changes being made. The MSRP of the 2019 Volvo XC90 starts at $47,700 which makes it the most affordable offering in the segment.


Buying Advice

We recommend the 2019 XC90 Momentum trim which easily justifies its $47,700 price tag and opting for the T6 version would sweeten the deal further as it gets an impressive 316 horsepower turbocharged and supercharged four-cylinder engine and standard AWD which takes care of the performance aspect of the SUV. Further, on the feature front, you get 19-inch wheels, a 12.3-inch gauge cluster, and leather upholstery.

Features
9.0/10

The 2019 Volvo XC90 comes in three trim levels. Momentum, R-Design, and Inscription. Prices for the same start from an MSRP of $47,700 for the Momentum trim, while the Inscription trim is priced at $62,350. But it is a bit more complicated than that as these trims are subcategorized under T5, T6, and T8 which refers to different engine configurations. Where T5 is loaded with a turbocharged four-cylinder engine, a supercharged four-cylinder engine can be found inside the T6 version. Even the base Momentum trim is pretty much fully loaded with technology and luxury features as well.

The ‘R-Design’ trim is a sports version of XC90 with various visual changes to the exterior and interior. It comes with 20-inch wheels, Premium leather upholstery, illuminated step plates, and seats with power thigh support. Finally ‘Inscription’ tops out by having unique wheels, even more comfortable seats with various adjustments, changes to the exterior and interior design, and additional creature comforts.

Engine and Performance
8.1/10

The T5 versions of the 2019 Volvo XC90 are powered by a 2.0L turbocharged inline-4 cylinder engine which produces 250 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque. Front-wheel drive is standard on all T5 versions but with the option for an all-wheel-drive system. Power is sent to the wheels via an eight-speed automatic transmission. The XC90's towing capacity of just 4,000 lbs is pretty low for the segment with this base engine.

As for the engine, going with a turbocharged four-cylinder against the V6 engines of its segment is a daunting move by Volvo but the 2019 XC90 manages well to go from 0-60 mph in 7.5 seconds. These timings are decent for an SUV this size but not that impressive for its segment. The XC90 T6 version on the other hand comes with a more powerful 310 horsepower supercharged four-cylinder engine which offers more oomph and can go from 0-60 mph in 6.4 seconds which is pretty quick for such a vehicle.

The steering wheel feels light which makes XC90 drive pretty nicely on quick turns or traversing through traffic. Take it to higher speeds and the steering wheel suddenly adapts and still performs admirably and it’s good at tackling corners delightfully, especially if you opt for Volvo’s optional air suspension system. The same can be said about the suspension system which easily glides over low to medium-sized bumps and adjusts according to the different driving modes. However, do not expect some serious offroading.

The Volvo XC90 weighs 5,113 pounds which is very heavy but then again it is a three-row fully loaded SUV so it is expected. But it must be said that the braking performance is pretty impressive with the 13.2-inch front and 12.1-inch rear disc brakes which are fully ventilated. The braking system is paired with various assists which results in efficient control. which results in XC90 stopping from 60-0 mph in a distance of 122 feet.

Fuel Economy
7.1/10

When it comes to fuel economy, the turbocharged engine of the XC90 is as efficient as it is powerful. The base T5 engine of the XC90 offers an efficiency of 21 MPG in the city, 29 MPG on the highways, and 24 MPG combined which is easily one of the best in its class. The more powerful T6 too returns a pretty decent 19/26/22 MPG in city/highway/combined conditions. However, the 18.8-gallon fuel tank is a bit smaller than what you would find in similar vehicles in this segment.

438 / 569.4 / 481.8

The XC90 offers impressive fuel economy which is better than the others, but its limited fuel tank capacity makes it fall short against the rivals in terms of the overall range. The X5 is equally frugal as it is powerful and comes next in line after the XC90 while the Mercedes sips the most fuel. That being said, the GLE employs the largest gas tank and offers the longest driving range.

Interior
8.5/10

Get inside the 2019 Volvo XC90 and you will find arguably one of the most beautiful cabin designs in its segment. The stunning XC90 interior is beautifully crafted. Everything feels premium with a mixture of genuine wood and leather. On top of that, aluminum accents provide a certain sense of elegance. The dashboard is equally beautiful with excellent ergonomics. The leather-wrapped steering wheel looks amazing but can be upgraded to a sporty steering wheel with shift paddles. The cabin is spacious and offers excellent ingress and egress because of the wide doors.

There are power-adjustable front bucket seats with memory settings and various adjustments are also available. The front seats can also be upgraded to ventilated ones with power thigh support. A 40/20/40 split-bench seat comes standard for second-row occupants which offers excellent room with manual reclining options. For the third row, a 50/50 split-folding bench seat is present which is best suitable for kids because of the limited leg and shoulder room. But then again it is common in other vehicles as well. The cargo capacity of XC90 is on the higher side which is impressive, and also the inside of the vehicle offers plenty of space for small items.

The infotainment system of the Volvo XC90 is powered by Volvo’s Sensus system which has received updated software for 2019 making it better than ever before. As standard, a 9-inch infotainment touchscreen is available which is responsive, but we must say the updated software still hasn’t solved the issue of having a complicated UI that needs some time to get used to and usually begs for several swipes to get somewhere. Thankfully, the day can be saved via Android Auto or Apple CarPlay.

A high-performance audio system with 10 speakers sounds really good but for audiophiles an optional Harman Kardon premium audio system is available. Various USB ports for charging and connectivity are available including 12-volt output in the cargo area. The Voice activation system is also pretty good. A multimedia package is also available which loads it with a 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster.

Exterior
8.3/10

Buyers hypnotized by the 2019 Volvo XC90’s lavishing interior will be mesmerized by the exterior design which according to us is one of the best in its class. A beautifully sculpted exterior body with everything seamless is its strong feature. At the front, you get a compact-designed face with Volvo's traditional chrome grille with thin headlamps. The sides of the vehicle are mostly body-colored with chrome trim on the windows.

At the rear, unique tail lights with a lip spoiler can be found. Volvo has introduced new colors and made some changes to standard and optional features such as LED headlights with a headlight washing system that comes under the Advanced package. The 18-inch wheels are standard on Momentum and 20 inches on the R-Design. The XC90 Inscription trim however gets unique diamond-cut wheels.

Dimensions-wise, the 2019 XC90 is somewhat similar to the others, but it is heavier than the others. The XC90's 9.4-inch ground clearance is also better than the others and makes it a better option for traversing through rough terrain. But we would advise you to not go for the 20-inch wheels unless you prefer style over comfort. The Mercedes GLE is shorter in length and rides lower to the ground. The Q7 too has a similar ride height but is the largest SUV here.

Below are some of its key exterior features:

  • Adaptive Auto-Leveling headlights w/Perimeter/Approach Lights, Cornering Lights & Headlight washers
  • LED Brakelights
  • Power Liftgate w/Lip Spoiler
  • Power heated auto-dimming side mirrors with power-folding and turns indicators
  • Express Open/Close Sliding & Tilting Laminated Glass Panoramic Sunroof w/Power Sunshade
  • 20-inch 10 spoke tinted silver diamond cut alloy wheels
Safety
9.8/10

The 2019 Volvo XC90 is based on the Scalable Product Architecture (SPA) platform, which ensures a reduction in weight and offers better safety and efficiency. This is why it received great ratings in crash tests conducted by the NHTSA and the “Top Safety Pick” award from the IIHS. Other than various standard stability controls and multiple airbags, Volvo has loaded the XC90 fully with all sorts of driver assists and safety features such as Roll stability control, forward collision warning, an automatic emergency braking system, and a 360-degree camera system. Further, many more advanced active and passive driving assists are also clustered into various other packages on offer.

Below are some of its key safety features:

  • Adaptive cruise control
  • Blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert
  • Lane-keeping assist
  • Lane departure warning system
  • Forward collision avoidance with an automatic emergency braking system
  • Volvo On-Call Emergency SOS
  • Back-Up Camera
Competition
6.0/10

2019 Volvo XC90 vs 2019 Audi Q7

When compared to the Audi Q7, the 2019 Volvo XC90 offers an excellent quality interior with beautiful visuals, a better set of technology, and lots of safety features. Not to forget about the smooth and comfortable driving experience. The Audi Q7 on the other hand is faster, more fuel-efficient has better braking power, and offers more room for both passengers and cargo.

2019 Volvo XC90 vs 2019 BMW X5

When put against the BMW X5 which comes with a more powerful six-cylinder engine and is a five-seater, the 2019 Volvo XC90 feels underpowered, however, it offers a more controlled ride experience, more seating capacity, and a top-tier level of interior luxury too. On the other hand, the 2019 X5 feels better to drive with its excellent handling and punchier performance.

Final Verdict

The Volvo XC90 is one of those rare machines which tries its best to exceed in almost every section. Where it fails and where it succeeds is purely subjective and depends on what the buyer prefers, but according to us, the Swedish Volvo midsize offering manages to bring a perfect balance between power and luxury. It's a seven-seater SUV that offers decent power with exceptional ride quality, has a spacious cabin with the usage of top-quality material, and so many luxury features. So yes we think you should consider getting a 2019 Volvo XC90.
