Volvo XC90 in Exeter, NH 

The Volvo XC90 is Refreshed for 2020, and Ready to Take on the SUV Competition

Searching for a three-row SUV that delivers the space your family needs, with the refinement and luxury you crave? At Volvo Cars of Exeter, we invite you to take a closer look at the mid-sized Volvo XC90. This renowned crossover, the largest in the Volvo lineup, is lightly refreshed for 2020, and it delivers everything our customers in the Portsmouth area want, and much more.

For 2020, the Volvo XC90 gets a handful of exciting updates. A new seating configuration that accommodates six passengers in three spacious rows has been added to the lineup, and the entire model gets a slightly refreshed design and appearance.

While we're proud of our current crop of available XC90 models, we also understand that drivers in the greater Dover and York, ME area have a lot of options available to them when searching for a luxury SUV. To help you make the right decision for your next big vehicle purchase, we've done a little homework. Here you'll find a number of areas where our XC90 model outshines and outperforms the similarly sized, competing BMW X5.

The 2020 Volvo XC90 vs. the 2020 BMW X5

  • Groundbreaking hybrid technology. For 2020, both the Volvo XC90 and the BMW X5 SUVs offer drivers a variety of powertrain options to choose from. But the Volvo has something the BMW does not - an impressive and efficient plug-in hybrid system. The T8 engine, which is supercharged and turbocharged and works with an 87-horsepower electric motor, delivers a robust 400 horsepower and 472 pound-feet of torque. Plus, this plug-in system has a nice electric-only driving range as well. The BMW, on the other hand, has a series of gas-powered engines available, but nothing like the Volvo SUV's hybrid engine.

  • Safety features. While both SUVs have a variety of high-tech driver's aids for safety, the Volvo has more standard than the X5. Every XC90, regardless of trim level, comes with oncoming traffic mitigation, lane-centering assistance, and lane keeping assistance, among others. The BMW has some of the same features, but several, including the oncoming traffic mitigation, are missing.
  • Technology. As with the safety features, the Volvo XC90 also delivers more in the way of tech and convenience features than the BMW. The Volvo has standard Wi-Fi capability, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and much more. Of these three features listed here, the X5 only has the Apple CarPlay standard.
  • Interior space and cargo room.

    The 2020 BMW X5 is a two-row model with optional third row for families who need more space. The Volvo XC90, on the other hand, comes standard as a three-row model. While both have comparable exterior dimensions that are nearly identical, the Volvo maximizes its interior better than the BMW. With the optional third row, the BMW is cramped at best, with the third row best left to small children. You also lose a lot of cargo space with the third row installed. But the Volvo is spacious and offers more room for both passengers and cargo, regardless of whether the third row is up and in place.
