With loads of cargo space, interior wood trims, plenty of infotainment features and genuine leather upholstery, the 2020 Volvo V90 Cross Country has earned the respect and admiration it deserves. It has plenty of power, provides excellent handling and can handle any situation it encounters.

The 2020 Ford Explorer is built for shutting families and is equipped with decent sized cargo space. It has an unimpressive interior compared to the V90 but offers a comfortable ride for everyone.

Design & Style

The 2020 V90 Cross Country has high-quality trims, an elegant design interior cabin and soft-touch panels that elevate the overall ambiance. It provides a generous amount of cabin capacity as well as ample leg and headroom for all passengers.

Although the interior cabin of the Explorer is boring and uninspired, it is comfortable and functional. Passengers at the rear seats might find the leg rooms to be narrower compared to the V90. The Explorer features a decent-sized cargo space that is more than adequate. 

Technology & Safety

Passengers in the V90 can expect a load of safety features and driver assistance technology such as pedestrian detection, adaptive cruise control, automated braking system and many more. Safety is the top priority in all of Volvo's lineup and no car maker does it better than Volvo. The V90 Cross Country also comes with a 9.0-inch touch screen infotainment system that provides interaction within the cabin.

Like the V90, the 2020 Ford Explorer has a standard infotainment system that includes Android Auto and Apple CarPlay as well as Wi-Fi hotspot capability. The Explorer is also fitted with a variety of driver-assistance features and has available upgrades such as parking assist and many more.


The acceleration on the V90 Cross Country delivers consistent power across the entire rev range when driven hard. The performance is brisk, smooth and rides impressively over most terrain. It handles cornering and uphill like a pro.

The Explorer is more subtle, composed but is not as exciting to drive compared to the V90. It handles well on twisty corners and drives adequately on different terrains. For better performance, the Explorer ST is a far better choice. 

The Bottom Line

The 2020 Volvo V90 has a stylish design, impressive cargo space, classy cabin and has a premium touch to its overall feel. The V90 provides efficient transport for daily activities and is as practical as it is luxurious.

The 2020 Ford Explorer is loaded with decent cargo space and has plentiful interior features. It offers a composed ride and handles great in any condition. However, its design is outdated, and the materials used on the interior are subpar compared to the V90.
