The Volvo XC90 as well as the Lexus GX are two of the most well-known names in the premium three-row SUV sector. Buyers frequently favor this class of cars because of its imposing presence on the road, spacious interiors, and capable performance that allows them to create unforgettable experiences. In this article, we'll compare the 2022 Volvo XC90 and the 2022 Lexus GX to see how they compare to each other and their respective competitors in their class.

Design & Style

The Volvo XC90 is the apparent choice if comfort is a top priority. When comparing the front seat adjustment of both SUVs, the XC90 has 12-way power adjustable seats with powered side bolsters and cushion extensions for exceptional comfort. The GX lacks both of these features and simply has 8-way adjustable front seats. The XC90 incorporates adaptive cruise control to assist maintain a suitable following distance relative to the car in front of you, making stop-and-go traffic more bearable.

Technology & Safety

The XC90's Harman Kardon audio system provides a better listening experience and has 5 more speakers than the GX 460's system. With a load capacity of 85.7 cubic feet, driving an XC90 means you'll never want to leave that excess baggage at home. That's more than 20 cubic feet more than the GX 460 has. Finally, Volvo will pay for your first three planned maintenance appointments, allowing you to spend more time enjoying your journey and less time worrying about maintenance costs. Lexus includes a one scheduled maintenance visit.

Volvo also has a strong history of safety, as evidenced by honors like the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety IIHS) Top Safety Pick+ designation.


In terms of performance, the XC90 T6 Momentum outperforms the GX 460 by 15 horsepower. Despite this power advantage, the XC90 is more efficient than the Lexus GX, which has dismal MPG statistics. Volvo wins in terms of city, highway, as well as combined fuel efficiency ratings. These outstanding results are most likely due to a more sophisticated 8-speed automatic gearbox.

The XC90's larger 20-inch alloy wheels give it a more dominating presence on the road than the GX 460's smaller 18-inch wheels. A standard remote start system, activated by your connected smart device, guarantees that you always enter a pleasant cabin. The Lexus GX 460 does not even have this fantastic function.

The Bottom Line

If you're searching for a luxury SUV with amazing performance, exceptional build quality, and innovative technology features, the 2022 Volvo will not disappoint. You'll discover one that matches your budget and also support your needs in any setting with different trim options.
