Volvo XC90 vs. Audi Q7 Performance and Safety

The last two topics we will consider are performance and safety. The 2023 Volvo XC90 has impressive performance specs across its two available engines. The B5 AWD engine gets 247 horsepower from its turbocharged four-cylinder engine. The B6 version of the SUV gets 295 horsepower by adding a supercharger to the turbocharged engine.

The most impressive version of the Volvo SUV is, however, the new Volvo XC90 hybrid vehicle. As a plug-in hybrid, it gets superb fuel economy and has a heck of a lot of performance potential. By pairing the turbocharged and supercharged 2.0-liter engine with a powerful battery-and-motor system, it gets 455 horsepower.

The Audi Q7 has a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that gets only 261 horsepower. This standard engine can help you achieve a top speed of 130 miles per hour. This engine is a good choice for those who want a daily commuter and don't mind the lack of a supercharged engine.

The 2023 Volvo XC90 has more standard safety technology than the Audi Q7. It includes automated emergency braking, lane-departure warning, blind-spot monitoring with cross-traffic alerts, and forward-collision warning. The Audi Q7 has some of these features as standard ones, like forward-collision warning, but the others are expensive add-ons.
