Which Volvo Luxury SUV is Right for You?

If a Luxury SUV is in your future, the Volvo lineup is sure to make the top of your list. Whether you ultimately get the XC40, XC60, or XC90 is a matter of your lifestyle, but whatever you choose to drive around the streets of Barrington or Hoffman Estates, you can always count on Volvo features and technology to get there in style and safety.

Volvo XC40 Luxury SUV

As the smallest crossover in Volvo's lineup, the XC40 combines a versatile interior with compact, fit-anywhere dimensions. It's an ideal choice for drivers seeking added cargo utility, but with smaller space requirements. Luxurious yet practical, the Volvo XC40 is the perfect crossover for city life.

XC40 Engine Options

The XC40 offers two engine options; both matched with an eight-speed automatic transmission:

  • T4: Equipped with standard front-wheel drive, the XC40 T4 is powered by a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that makes 187 horsepower and 221 pound-feet of torque.

  • T5: The XC40 T5 features a higher-output version of the same engine, producing 248 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. All-wheel-drive is standard.

XC40 Quick Facts

  • The XC40 accommodates five people, with 21 cubic feet for cargo behind the back seats.
  • The 60/40-split rear seats can fold down to increase available cargo capacity to 47.2 cubic feet.
  • The XC40 comes standard with several IntelliSafe safety features, including Volvo City Safety (collision warning and mitigation) and Lane Keeping aid.
  • Other standard highlights include 18-inch wheels, a 9-inch Sensus touchscreen infotainment system, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration, and a power liftgate.
  • Volvo's Pilot Assist semi-autonomous driving system is an available option.

Volvo XC60 Luxury SUV

The Volvo XC60 provides a little extra space for passengers and cargo while retaining a maneuverable compact crossover footprint. In addition to its increased dimensions, the XC60 adds to the standard and available features list and offers more powerful engine options.

XC60 Engine Options

Barrington IL crossover shoppers can select from three primary XC60 engines. An eight-speed automatic transmission is common to all powertrains.

  • T5: The base T5 engine is a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder that produces 250 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. The T5 equips standard front-wheel-drive, and all-wheel drive is an available option.

  • T6: Equipped with standard all-wheel drive, the T6 engine adds a supercharger for extra internal motivation. This Twincharger engine increases output to 316 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque.

  • T8 eAWD: The T8 plug-in hybrid engine comes standard with all-wheel drive. It adds an electric motor to the T6's Twincharger engine, for improved power and fuel efficiency. Total system output reaches 400 horsepower and 472 pound-feet of torque.

XC60 Quick Facts

Volvo XC90 Luxury SUV

With three rows of seating and expanded cargo options, the Volvo XC90 is the largest in Volvo's SUV lineup and the automaker's flagship vehicle. The XC90 features the same three engine options available to the XC60, but the different powertrain options add extra amenities to the standard feature's lists. The T5 engine with all-wheel-drive adds heated front seats. The T6 engine adds navigation and leather upholstery, and the T8 adds an 11-speaker audio system.
