The 2020 Volvo XC90 aims to intrigue its target audience through its clear display of luxury and sophistication which can easily be seen throughout its cabin interior. Everyone onboard can expect optimum comfort and support during their journeys every single day regardless of distance. Let us find out more about the XC90 and how it outperforms one of its competitors, the Land rover Defender.

Design & Style

The Volvo XC90 sees its cabin interior accommodating up to a total of 7 people. They can look forward to cushy and supple seats that are roomy which are perfect even for longer drives. Taller passengers and driver will also appreciate the abundance of leg- and headroom across the whole cabin of the XC90. The cabin of the car looks sophisticated with the use of several high-quality materials like soft plastics, leather, matte wood, and aluminum which are luxurious and attractive.

The Land Rover Defender seats 5 under its standard layout. It has front row seats that are cushy and well-bolstered even through bumpy terrains. Driver outward visibility is good from any direction, and leg- and headroom are aplenty even for taller folks. The car's cabin basically looks just average even with the use of quality materials for its surfaces.

Technology & Safety

The Volvo XC90 comes well-furnished with more than a couple of technological devices which comprise the Sensus system, Android/Apple platform compatibility, a 9-inch display, 10 speakers, a pair of USB ports, satellite radio, and Bluetooth connectivity. Safety features like parking sensors, rearview camera, cruise control, auto emergency brakes, collision warning, rear traffic alert, blind spot monitor, attentiveness monitor, lane assist, and sign recognition are also included as standard.

The Land Rover Defender is equipped with several tech features that come as standard including a 10-inch infotainment display, Android/Apple platform compatibility, wireless charging dock, and navigation. It also offers various safety equipment like auto emergency brakes, collision warning, blind spot monitor, pedestrian detection, lane assist, and departure warning.


The Volvo XC90 can produce 250 horsepower when powered by its standard 2L turbocharged engine. Its fuel efficiency ratings can fetch 21 mpg for cities and 30 mpg while on highways.

The Land Rover Defender puts out 296 horsepower under a turbocharged engine with four cylinders.

The Bottom Line

The XC90 makes it a point to showcase its real worth. Its interior displays a high-end outlook that is not just comfortable, but also highly luxurious and full of support as well. Plenty of top-grade materials are used inside to achieve a posh look that is both classy and elegant.

The Land Rover Defender needs to work on the quality of its interior space as well as style to stay on par, if not ahead of the XC90.
