The 2022 Chevrolet Suburban is a truly mammoth SUV. It offers independent suspension, a huge amount of space and every luxury feature known to man. But how does it compare to the 2022 Volvo XC90, a gorgeous and powerful SUV packed with lots of luxury and safety features of its own?

Design & Style

The XC90 takes sophistication to new heights. The body panels look fantastic, as does the interior design. The glass is airy and matched by light tones and seats that are supple with wooden trim that is open pore. The LED lights look great and it can seat a maximum of seven passengers. The Suburban is huge, so much so that it won't fit in many standard garages. It is designed for large and prosperous families that need to haul lots of cargo and does well in this regard. The exterior features boxy covers with a prominent grille in front and large windows on the side. Those that purchase the higher trims will get access to leather seats in the interior, while everyone else will be limited to cloth.

Technology & Safety

The Chevrolet Suburban has garnered a 4 star rating from the NHTSA. Its large size alone makes it a threat to almost any other vehicle it hits, except for an 18 wheeler. It is outfitted with an assortment of countermeasures designed to prevent impacts before they occur, such as automated emergency brakes, parking sensors, pedestrian detection, and a rear and surround view camera, and lane control. Luxuries within its cabin include climate control which covers three zones, powered seats, Apple CarPlay or Android Auto, steering wheel wrapped in leather, a Bose audio system with nine speakers and mirror which auto dims.

The Volvo XC90 has the newest and most effective safety features known to man, including blind area monitoring, steering assistance, automated emergency brakes and parking sensors. It is one of the few SUVs that have the distinction of earning both a five star NHTSA rating and Top Safety Pick award, and perks within its cabin include wireless smartphone compatibility, heated/cooled seats, perforated leather and an audio system from Bowers & Wilkins.


The Volvo XC90 is fast and nimble, with a T6 drivetrain and engine that can generate 316 horsepower with 295 pounds of torque. The Chevrolet Suburban comes with a V8 engine that is 5.3 and capable of generating 355 horsepower with 383 pounds of torque.

The Bottom Line

While the Chevrolet Suburban has a fantastic engine, the Volvo has better safety features. In fact, the Suburban lacks many standardized countermeasures, and because its third row won't recline and its great size prevents it from being housed in many garages, the XC90's greater versatility makes it the winner.
