2010 Volvo XC90 Review

The 2010 Volvo XC90 is a solid family SUV, but reviewers said that its uninspiring performance and dated interior make the competition more appealing.

Pros & Cons

  • Lots of safety equipment
  • Powerful V8 engine
  • Strong crash test ratings
  • Solid handling
  • Base V6 engine is underpowered
  • Disappointing gas mileage
  • Cramped third-row seats

2010 Volvo XC90 Overview

Test drivers said the 2010 Volvo XC90 is a decent choice for shoppers looking for a seven-seat crossover with a bit of understated luxury. Most reviewers agreed that the XC90’s strongest points are its safety and its quiet, stylish cabin. Not only does the XC90 get strong safety ratings from the federal government and Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, but it offers lots of safety features as well. A second-row integrated booster cushion, rear parking sensors, stability and traction control and lots of airbags all make an appearance on the XC90.

However, the Volvo does have a few downsides when compared with other entries in its class. Though its ride is fairly comfortable, it’s not much fun to drive. Test drivers appreciated its available V8 engine, but that extra power comes at the expense of terrible fuel economy. The base V6 engine gets average gas mileage, but most who drove it said that it felt underpowered. Plus, the XC90’s third row is too cramped for anyone but children to use. Overall, the XC90 is a solid SUV that’s safe and comfortable, but shoppers looking for a bit of pizzazz or better fuel economy should shop elsewhere.

Other Cars to Consider

If you’re looking for a roomier third row or a better combination of fuel economy and power than the Volvo XC90 can offer, consider the new-for-2010 Lincoln MKT. The MKT ranks near the top of its class for its outstanding safety scores, powerful EcoBoost V6 and long list of standard features.

You should also consider the 2010 Acura MDX. Reviewers loved its sporty handling and well-appointed interior.
