The 2020 Volvo V90 is a complete package when it comes to technology, design and performance, which is why it is one of the highly ranked cars in the market. You will find a lot of competitors in the market, not matching up to the level of V90. The 2020 Honda CR-V is one of them. Let us compare and contrast these rivals for a better understanding.

Design & Style

The 2020 Honda CR-V claims to be a 5-seater model, but it can only seat up to 4 with comfort. Most of the seating amenities such as leather upholstery, heated front seats and power adjustable seats are optional. You have an upscale cabin with some quality materials, but there are low-grade plastics as well.

The 2020 Volvo V90 comes standard with a seating configuration for 5, along with leather upholstery, power adjustable seats and leather-wrapped steering wheel. Some of the enhancements include Nappa leather upholstery, heated steering wheel and heated rear seats.

Technology & Safety

CR-V comes equipped with a small infotainment display, 4-speakers stereo, a USB port and Bluetooth. Other key features include 9 speakers, a moonroof, additional USB ports, HD Radio, satellite radio, wireless charging and Apple CarPlay.  There are not many physical controls for on-screen setting, and the touch screen is extremely slow to respond. Standard driver assistance features include lane keep assist, adaptive cruise control, road departure warning, automatic high-beam headlights and a rearview camera.

The 2020 Volvo V90 comes standard with a Sensus infotainment system, along with key features such as 14-speaker system, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and a responsive touch screen. One can easily navigate through the menu, without much hassle. Some of the standard safety features include a rearview camera, driver attention monitoring, road-sign recognition, parking sensors and adaptive cruise control.


Performance is one of the crucial aspects to consider when you are looking to buy a car. The Honda CR-V comes with a base 190-HP 4-cylinder mated to a continuously variable automatic transmission. It feels underpowered in most situations and fails to deliver smooth acceleration.

This is where the 2020 Volvo V90 has an upper hand with a well-equipped powertrain that can ramp up to 250-HP. It can get you going right from the stop and offers athletic ride, along with sharp handling.

The Bottom Line

The 2020 Volvo V90 is by far one of the best compact SUVs you will find in the market. This statement is backed by an upscale cabin, roomy seats and plenty of cargo space. It strikes a great balance of agility and comfort, when on road, and offers the best infotainment controls in this class.
