A three-row SUV with a spacious interior and style to spare, the 2021 Volvo XC90 is well suited for luxurious family duty. It’s Volvo’s biggest vehicle, and it gives you seven-passenger seating plus more available cargo space than its smaller XC60 sibling.
Every XC90 comes with a turbocharged four-cylinder engine. This might seem odd given that six-cylinder engines are the norm for this class, but Volvo has applied enough techno-wizardry to make it work. There are actually three engine versions, which Volvo calls the T5, T6 and Recharge (formerly called the T8). The Recharge is a plug-in hybrid with an impressive 400 horsepower plus 18 miles of electric range. How well does it all work? Can you really have high fuel efficiency and gobs of power from a practical luxury SUV? Read our XC90 Recharge Expert Rating below to find out.
