Volvo XC90 vs. The BMW X5

If you're looking to spend less time at the fuel pump, the Volvo XC90 receives 22 mpg city and 29 mpg on the highway when it comes to fuel economy. Fantastic for the daily work commute through Grandville, MI or your weekend adventures outside of Grand Rapids. The BMW X5 receives a standard 18 mpg city and 25mpg, which may keep you stopping in at your local gas station more often.

Drivers who are seeking more cargo space for their weekend gear will also find it within the 85.7-cubic feet of total cargo area, but you might find yourself cramming your luggage into the X5 with its 76.7-cubic feet of rear space. The XC90 is also capable of seating up to seven passengers, whereas the X5 is suited for only five.

Volvo XC90 vs. The Lexus RX350

When it comes to fuel economy for these two SUV models, the Volvo XC90 comes out as the leader while receiving 22 mpg city and 29 mpg highway compared to the RX350 19 mpg city and 26 mpg highway. The XC90 also provides more comfortable space for up to seven passengers compared to the seating for five that the Lexus provides and when it comes to payload and towing capacity for your weekend travels through Michigan, look forward to a towing capability of 5,000-lbs and a payload of 1,539-lbs. The Lexus is only capable of hauling up to 3,500-lbs and a payload of 1,050-lbs which obviously less capable when the time comes to pull the family camper or boat.



Volvo XC90 vs. the Audi Q7

Similar in luxurious style and capability, there are some features Michigan drivers just won't receive with their Audi purchase but is available in the Volvo XC90. Take on the roads and highways with an increase in fuel efficiency while receiving 22 mpg city and 29 mpg highway with the Volvo where you'll be lucky to have 19 mpg city and 25 mpg on the highway with the Q7. Looking to load more cargo on your weekend road trips or daily errands? The Volvo XC90 holds a total of 85.7-cubic feet compared to the Q7 model's 71.6 cubic feet of cargo which makes all the difference when accommodating for family gear.

Also, drivers can look forward to more space for their passengers inside the third-row seating, and when it comes to premium leather materials for comfort, the Audi Q7 can't compete with the high-quality luxury provided by the Volvo brand. Drive confidently in the Volvo XC90 knowing that it received high-ranking scores in safety from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration in 2017, while the Audi Q7 has yet to receive any official safety rating.
