Volvo XC90 T8 Hybrid

The XC90 is a handsome, square-jawed Swede striving to offer more efficiency and safety than its rivals while adding a dose of Scandinavian flair. Its 2.0-liter four-cylinder uses turbocharging and supercharging to create 316 hp and drives all four wheels through an eight-speed automatic. An 80-hp electric motor joins the party in plug-in hybrid models. There’s room for seven in the handsomely appointed interior, with deeply comfortable seats as well as Sensus, Volvo’s new infotainment system.
