With a lavish cabin and cushy seats, Volvo V90 finds itself in the top half of the car rankings, with one of its main competitors being the 20120 Ford Escape. If you are looking to make a choice between the two, the below comparison will help.

Design & Style

The 2020 Ford Escape can seat up to 5 people, with comfortable front seats. Not much can be said about rear seats, as they seem to be cramped. The cabin lacks some serious quality, as there are a lot of hard surfaces. The overall appearance is not impressive compared to other rivals.

On the other hand, the 2020 Volvo V90 can seat up to 5 people, and it comes standard with leather and cloth upholstery, along with leather-wrapped steering wheel and power-adjustable seats. Seating upgrades include rear-window sunshades, heated rear seats and massaging front seats.

Technology & Safety

The 2020 Ford Escape comes equipped with the SYNC system and a 4.2-inch display, along with a USB port, Bluetooth and a 6-speaker system.  For a better intuitive system, you need to opt for the available SYNC 3 infotainment system. You don't get many bells or whistles with the standard system. Also, you don't have smartphone integration available. Standard safety features include rearview camera, automatic emergency braking, pedestrian detection, forward collision warning, driver drowsiness monitoring, blind spot monitoring and curve control.

The 2020 Volvo V90 comes standard with technology including Sensus infotainment interface with navigation, 14-speaker audio system, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and 9-inch touch screen. The split-view of the system makes it easier to view the cabin information and smartphone integration technology. Standard safety features include forward collision warning, rear cross traffic alert, rear parking sensors, rearview camera, blind spot monitoring, automatic emergency braking and driver attention monitoring.


Performance is a crucial factor to consider, when you are looking to buy a car. Speaking of which, the 2020 Ford Escape comes with a 180-HP 3-cylinder engine. Although it offers enough power for daily driving, most rivals are more energetic. One of them is the Volvo V90 that comes standard with a 250-HP 2-liter turbocharged engine, which provides a decent amount of power for most driving conditions. The engine is mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission.

The Bottom Line

The 2020 Volvo V90 is a good luxury car model with a powerful engine and plenty of convenience features, compared to other rivals. Not only do you get livelier handling and nicer cabin materials, but also exceptional performance. In this competitive segment, Ford Escape does little to impress the critics. V90 should be your choice above 2020 Ford Escape.
