The automobile industry is full of wonderful choices, with some of the leading brands on offer. A couple of models that are quite popular among car buyers include the likes of 2018 Honda CR-V and the 2018 Volvo V90. In case you are willing to purchase one of them, this comparison will help you in making the right choice.

Design & Style

Durable and robust construction outlines the exterior of both the 2018 Honda CR-V and the 2018 Volvo V90. For the interiors, the CR-V is a 5-seater compact SUV with comfortable front seats and excellent visibility on offer. Available options include power-adjustable front seats, leather seats, heated front seats, and a heated steering wheel.

It is quite rare for luxury cars to combine style with practicality. This is not the case with the 2018 Volvo V90, which tops the list in terms of elegance and classiness it has to offer with its cabin design. Along with an upmarket interior, there is plenty of cargo space on offer. Both the front and rear seats are quite impeccable with ample comfort and support.

Technology & Safety

No car review is complete without digging deep into the technology features of the same. The 2018 Honda CR-V comes standard with a 4-speaker stereo, Bluetooth interface, a USB port, and a 5-inch touch screen display. Some of the basic features that are missing in this model include an infotainment system, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto. The only standard safety feature in the base model is a rearview camera, and you need to spend a few more cash to get advanced features like automatic high beams, blind spot monitoring, and rear cross traffic alert.

The 2018 Volvo V90 is worth all the appreciation when it comes to analyzing the technology features. Along with an intuitive infotainment system, you have smartphone connectivity option as well. You can always upgrade to a high-end audio system for a pleasurable experience. Active driver assistance features include auto parking system, adaptive cruise control, and lane keeping assist.


Speaking of performance, the 2018 Honda CR-V comes standard with a four-cylinder 2.4-liter engine that generates an output of 180 lb-ft of torque and 184 Horsepower. Although it is sufficient to move the vehicle around the town, it is no match to the turbocharged engine of Volvo V90 with a maximum output of 250 HP, and up to 360 HP with T6 model.

The Bottom Line

The above comparison is a clear indication of how Volvo V90 steers clear of CR-V in terms of handling, interiors, performance, and technology. Anyone would want to be at the back of V90's wheels if Honda CR-V is the only other alternative.
