Wall Street Cheat Sheet recently compared the 2015 Volvo XC90 Plug-In Hybrid vs. other hybrid SUVs. The Volvo XC90 is the only seven-seater SUV to boast such a plug-in hybrid powertrain. It will compete against other hybrid SUVs such as the Audi Q5 Hybrid, the Lexus RX 450h, the Nissan Pathfinder Hybrid, the Porsche Cayenne Hybrid, the Toyota Highlander Hybrid, and the Volkswagen Touareg Hybrid.
Wall Street Cheat Sheet says the Lexus RX 450h is the current gold standard, while the Pathfind is the most affordable hybrid SUV on the market and the Porsche packs the most power. But it says the Volkswagen Touareg may be the new Volvo’s greatest competition.
