The 2019 XC90 is fitted with the right elements for its sturdy construction. This luxury SUV is among the most favored by car buyers in Manhattan for a lot of reasons. Meanwhile, the 2019 BMW X5 exerted effort to give its predecessor a total revamp, with a promise of providing comfort to passengers. These two cars are world class but which one wins between the two?

Design & Style

A solid car that presents a lot of great elements on the outside, the 2019 Volvo XC90 knows how to define refinement even with its sporty body. Inside the car, it also offers a great combination of trim pieces that includes materials such as leather and wood. This makes the car look more elegant. There is plenty of space to seat four to seven adults, depending on the trim level.

The 2019 BMW X5 is a car that uses 19-inch wheels to support the weight of its passengers. It has a power liftgate, adaptive LED headlights, and panoramic sunroof. Front seats are comfortable for passengers and drivers. The monotone color in the cabin is not as pleasing as those of its competitors, including the XC90.

Technology & Safety

When you are looking for a car that knows how to define and refine technologies, you will love what the 2019 Volvo XC90 can offer. This car has come up with a nine-inch touchscreen where all functions for the infotainment interface can be easily accessed. It also has a Bluetooth interface and a navigation system. For safety features, there is a long list, the most notable of which is the inclusion of Pilot Assist for semiautonomous driving.

The 2019 BMW X5, on the other hand, relies on a big 12.3-inch touchscreen display for its iDrive infotainment system. This is overwhelming though and takes some learning curve. Adaptive cruise control, rearview camera, and forward collision warning are among its safety features.


Working to give it a total result of 335 horsepower, the 2019 BMW X5 relies on its inline-six, 3.0-liter engine. The 2019 Volvo XC90, on the other hand, can generate up to 400 horsepower with the same engine size. It also defeats the X5 in terms of fuel efficiency, with results pegged at 21mpg for city driving and 29mpg for highway driving. The X5 only has a rating of 20mpg and 26mpg for city and highway driving.

The Bottom Line

With attributes that prove how great it is as a car, the 2019 Volvo XC90 is truly one of those spectacular rides that you will love to own. This car offers breathtaking combination of an impeccably designed interior and a solidly constructed exterior. It also exudes a level of modernity with its fully functional safety and driver aids. Do not forget that it has a powerful engine too.
