While both vehicles have ample engine power to provide for a smooth ride with the capability SUV drivers are looking for, the 2019 Range Rover contains a more powerful engine than the 2019 Volvo XC90. The base model Range Rover comes standard with a 3.0-liter supercharged V-6 engine that outputs 340 horsepower and 332 pound-feet of torque. The Volvo comes standard with a T-5 2.0-liter turbo four-cylinder engine, that outputs 350 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. 

The additional power gives the Range Rover a slight edge over the Volvo when it comes to towing capability, allowing it to tow over 7,500 pounds versus the Volvo's 4,000 pounds. Off-road lovers will enjoy the extras 1.5 inches of clearance provided on the Range Rover, which will allow them to traverse rougher terrain without risk of damage. 

Fuel Economy

No matter which engine option you choose, both the 2019 Range Rover and 2019 Volvo XC90 deliver on fuel efficiency. The Range Rover's base engine offers a fuel economy rating of 21 miles per gallon in the city, as does the Volvo XC90. Both vehicles also gain additional fuel efficiency through the use of regenerative brakes by converting friction back to usable energy instead of allowing it to be wasted. 

The notable difference in this category is that the Range Rover's gas tank holds an impressive 27.3 usable gallons of fuel, while the XC90 has a more standard-sized 18.8-gallon tank. The end result is many fewer stops at the gas station for Range Rover owners. 

Luxury & Convenience

When it comes to luxury and convenience, both brands rise to the occasion. Both vehicles sit up to five passengers, though the Range Rover has additional space to fit a full-size flat tire, which can be a lifesaver in time-sensitive situations. 

Both vehicles have ample head and leg room for passengers and offer comfort details in the interior such as leather heated and ventilated seats. They also allow you to stay connected hands-free with your smartphone contacts and music through Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

Safety & Security

All-wheel-drive comes standard on the Range Rover to help you maintain the necessary traction and stability no matter the road surface. AWD is an option on the Volvo XC90, though it comes at an additional cost. Both vehicles come standard with driver and passenger front airbags, side-impact airbags, side-impact head airbags, and curtain airbag systems to protect passengers. 

While both are excellent vehicles, the Range Rover is a more durable and capable vehicle for a number of situations than the XC90. Enjoy the comfort, convenience, and performance you are looking for in a luxury SUV by checking out the 2019 Range Rover today.
