Are you looking to buy a new car this 2020? There are some super luxury options out there in the market, including the likes of 2021 Mercedes Benz GLS Class and Volvo V90. Both are top ranked models but let us compare them to understand better.

Design & Style

The Mercedes GLS class can seat up to six people, and it comes standard with synthetic leather upholstery and power adjustable front seats. Optional upgrades include heated steering wheel, heated armrests and ventilated seats. The interior is quite average, and nothing much to boast of. There's limited cargo space as well.

The 2020 Volvo V90 can seat up to 5 people, with sufficient space across both the rows. It comes standard with power-adjustable seats, leather upholstery and leather-wrapped steering wheel. There are plenty of enhancements available, should you wish to upgrade. The interior is replete with quality materials and there are plenty of soft touch surfaces.

Technology & Safety

Mercedes-Benz GLS comes standard with a MBUX infotainment interface featuring a 12.3-inch screen, HD radio, Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, navigation, USB ports, navigation and wireless device charging. A 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster is standard. The infotainment system works great, but it may take time to master the controls. Standard safety features include a driver condition monitor, rain-sensing windshield wipers and surround-view parking camera system.

The 2020 Volvo V90 is packed with features like Sensus infotainment system, including navigation, audio system, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and 9-inch screen. The system is exceptionally easy to use, and the touch response is quite prompt. It also comes with plenty of key features such as rear cross traffic alert, forward collision warning, road-sign recognition, driver attention monitoring and rearview camera. The technology is quite excellent compared to other rivals.

Performance

There are two engine options for the 2021 Mercedes-Benz with a 3-liter turbo 6-cylinder engine that generates an output of 362 lb-feet of torque. However, it can literally burn a hole in your pocket, in terms of fuel efficiency. On the other hand, the 2020 V90 comes with a supercharged and turbocharged T6 engine that has exemplary power and quicker acceleration than most rivals. The engine is paired to a responsive 8-speed automatic transmission, and it offers composed handling  and a comfortable ride.

The Bottom Line

Boasting one of the most luxurious cabins in class, the 2020 Volvo V90 comes with plenty of standard features. It enjoys a good position in the market, and most car buyers have a good feedback to provide. If you are considering GLS Class over Volvo V90, you may have to overlook a lot of important features.
