Superior Safety

Both the Land Rover Discovery and the Volvo XC90 come with various safety features, such as traction control, crash mitigating brakes, lane departure warning systems, blind-spot warning systems, and more. However, unlike the Discovery, the XC90 goes above and beyond to keep its passengers safe.

The Volvo XC90 boasts pre-crash safety features such as front seatbelts that tighten when the SUV detects an impending crash, while the Discovery doesn't have any pre-crash tensioners. The XC90 also offers an available child booster seat that keeps your loved ones safer than a removable one. It's also more convenient, as drivers don't have to heave their heavy booster seat in and out of the SUV. These are just two examples of the innovative ways Volvo engineers wove convenience and practicality into the DNA of the XC90.

Servicing and Reliability

The engineers at Volvo have taken many precautions to ensure the XC90 is protected that Land Rover did not, such as putting the battery in the XC90's trunk away from hot underhood temperatures that can shorten its life. Meanwhile, the Land Rover Discovery's battery is stored in the hot engine compartment, where it is susceptible to damage. Maybe that's why J.D. Power and Associates agrees that Volvos are overall more reliable cars. In 2019, they released two studies- an Initial Quality Study and a survey of three-year-old car owners- that ranked Volvo higher than Land Rover in initial and long-term dependability. That's pretty significant, especially considering the fact that there are 72% more Volvo dealerships than Land Rover ones. A more dependable drive plus more service centers when you need it equals more confidence when you hit the road in a Volvo XC90.


Although the Land Rover Discovery claims to have a smooth ride, power and efficiency is the name of the game in the Volvo XC90. The XC90's T8 2.0L turbocharged 4-cylinder hybrid engine outperforms the Discovery's 3.0L supercharged V6, offering more horsepower (400hp vs. 300hp, respectively) as well as more pounds-foot torque (472 vs. 332, respectively). In addition to being more efficient, the XC90 is also more environmentally efficient than the Discovery, receiving a higher EPA rating than the Land Rover.

While a Land Rover Discovery might drive you, in the Volvo XC90, there's no questioning who holds the power. The XC90 has a wider wheelbase that allows for a smoother, more stable ride than the Discovery and a tighter turning circle. The Volvo SUV also has a significantly shorter stop distance than the Land Rover, allowing you to avoid close-call collisions.
