Volvo Cars of Marietta SUV Comparison

Explore the Luxury, Convenience, and Utility of Volvo SUVs

By their nature, SUVs offer great utility; with stronger capability and extended cargo capacities compared to the typical car. However, not all SUV's are created equal. Volvo SUVs excel in the areas of utilitarian convenience and spacious accommodations, but their wildcard is Volvo's inimitable Scandinavian design and craftsmanship. From highly-refined, upscale interiors, to the executive style and assertive aesthetic of their exteriors, Volvo SUVs don't blend in, they blend out. 

Before we get into the finer details, here are some quick points about each of these SUVs:

Volvo XC40

The smallest SUV in the Volvo lineup, the Volvo XC40 is perfect for Marietta drivers who want the convenience and utility of owning an SUV, but without an overly large footprint. Its diminutive stature enables it to navigate crowded city streets with ease. It also makes the XC40 lighter, giving it a better power to weight ratio from the T5 engine.

Don't let its size fool you, though. The XC40 has plenty of space, with comfortable seating for 5 riders in the refined and roomy cabin. With all seats up, you'll find almost 21 cubic-feet behind the second row-more than enough for running errands around town or bringing home the week's grocery haul. Need even more carrying capacity? The 60/40-split rear seats can be folded down, increasing the cargo hold to 47.2 cubic-feet.

Two versions are available based on powertrain. Both engines come paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission:

  • T4 FWD: turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder (187 horsepower, 221 pound-feet of torque)
  • T5 AWD: turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder (248 horsepower, 258 pound-feet of torque)

Volvo XC60

The larger size of the Volvo XC60 brings with it more powertrain options and a longer list of features. Its cabin is more capacious, and it features a full suite of standard advanced driver-assistance technologies, making it ideal for smaller families who need the extra room. With all seats in use, there's 29.7 cubic-feet of cargo room in the back. Fold down the second row and you'll be greeted with 63.3 cubic-feet.

Three powertrains are available for the Volvo XC60. All come with an eight-speed automatic transmission:

  • T5: turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder (250 horsepower, 258 pound-feet of torque) | Front wheel drive is standard, and all-wheel drive is available as an option.
  • T6: turbocharged and supercharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder (316 horsepower, 295 pound-feet of torque) | All-wheel drive is standard
  • T8 eAWD Plug-in Hybrid: Adds an electric motor to the T6 engine (400 horsepower, 472 pound-feet of torque) | All-wheel drive is standard

Volvo XC90

A mid-size luxury SUV, the XC90 is Volvo's flagship model. With three rows of spacious seating, a suite of advanced driver aids as standard equipment, and a long list of amenities, it's a great option for discerning larger families; or those who want a lot of carrying capacity without sacrificing refinement.

The XC90 offers the same engine lineup as the XC60 and a maximum cargo capacity of 85.7 cubic-feet.

If you prefer maximum luxury to seating capacity, the lounge-on-wheels Excellence trim is sure to impress. The rear two rows have been removed and replaced with two captain's chairs with foot rests. A rear center console with folding trays, heated and cooled cupholders, heated and ventilated seats, and a refrigerator with two crystal glasses, combine to turn the XC90 into a fully decked-out luxury limousine.
