The remodeled 2021 Volvo XC90 is a spacious car with an enchanting interior, great fuel economy and safety features. It is a powerful car with a classy cabin and maximum comfort. This is one of the best luxury midsize SUV.

The 2021 Lexus RX 350 offers a cushy ride with advanced technology and safety features. However, when compared to Volvo XC90, it lacks cabin space and cargo room that adds to the list of downsides.

Design & Style

The 2021 Volvo XC90 is a beautiful seven-seater car, and the seats can be adjusted to six for a more comfortable ride. The cabin is huge and can easily accommodate tall people without their head touching the roof and sufficient legroom. You get standard leather upholstery that can be modified to genuine leather. This adds up to its best-in-class interior that is comparable to rivals Porsche and Range Rover. Apart from the massaging front seats and heated second-row seats, the surfaces are finished with high-end materials including a matte-finish wood accent that ups its interior game.

On the other hand, the RX 350 is a five-seater car with standard features that are nowhere close the Volvo's advanced features. You get synthetic upholstery in the standard model and if you are ready to pay a huge amount for the RX L model, you can access upgraded features. Honestly, this is like a waste of money for those who are looking for a budget car with advanced features.

Technology & Safety

Technology-wise, XC90 comes with Volvo's Sensus infotainment system that comprises of a sleek 9-inch touch screen, 10-speaker stereo, two USB ports, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and many more such features. The screen also comes with buttons for the driver's easy access. If you want, you can upgrade the system with a head-up display, Bowers & Wilkins sound system and a Harman Kardon sound system for a musical blast on the go. Coming to safety features, XC90 comes with adaptive cruise control, automatic emergency braking, blind-spot monitoring, a driver drowsiness monitor, forward collision warning, are some of the highlights.

The Lexus RX has basic features that come standard in almost every car model these days. The 8-inch touch screen, nine-speaker sound system, HD radio, satellite radio are all basics and nothing compared to what is offered by XC90. The safety features and standard driver assistance features are also similar to the Volvo XC90.


You get three engine options in the 2021 Volvo XC90 offering different horsepower with available all-wheel drive. You can select the engine as per your requirement whether you want a basic everyday engine or a robust engine for sports car-like performance.

Sadly, the 2021 Lexus RX has only one engine option as compared to Volvo's three engine variants. It is good for an average drive but if you are looking for a beast, this won't fit the category.

The Bottom Line

If you are willing to purchase a classy car with cabin space, comfortable seating, advanced safety features and best-in-class infotainment system, go for the 2021 Volvo XC90. It is the best.
