2018 Toyota Sequoia vs 2018 Volvo XC90

If you are a car buyer in Milford CT, and caught in a dilemma to choose between the 2018 Volvo XC90 and the 2018 Toyota Sequoia, you are certainly going to have a hard time. However, this predicament can be cleared out with a brief comparison of both the models. You will come to know why Toyota has an edge over Volvo.  

Design & Style

The edgy lines of the 2018 Toyota Sequoia matches the sporty exterior of the 2018 Ford Expedition, although a lot differs, in terms of the interiors. There is a sense of European elegance with the Volvo XC90. The trimmings made of metal and wood, along with attractive front seats reflect the quality of material used. The refined build quality and style, in addition to a center stack gives a sleek design to the cabin.

The 2018 Toyota Sequoia takes things to another level with comfortable and spacious interiors made of top notch materials. It can accommodate up to 8 people comfortably, and is ideal for a group ride to off-road tracks as well. Taller passengers can fit in nicely, with enough legroom and headroom on offer.

Technology & Safety

Talking about the important factors when choosing a car, technology and safety are the primary aspects to watch out for. The 2018 Volvo XC90 comes standard with plenty of interior features, including a base infotainment system with 10 speakers, navigation, Apple CarPlay and vertically positioned touch screen. Standard safety features in the SUV include rearview camera, blind spot monitoring, road sign detection, adaptive cruise control, lane keep assist and lane departure warning.

Comparing Volvo with the 2018 Toyota Sequoia, the latter has a strong built interior furnished with top notch materials. The cabin can accommodate up to 8 people, ideal for enjoying a ride with your friends or family. Taller passengers will also find it comfortable, with enough legroom and headroom on offer.


Performance-wise, both the models give tough competition to each other.  The polished and fuel-efficient turbo-charged 4-cylinder T5 engine of the 2018 Volvo XC90 is a bit sluggish. The T6 engine produces an output of 316-horsepower, which implies it has both a supercharger and a turbocharger for ultra-quick acceleration. On the other hand, the 2018 Toyota Sequoia has a far superior V8 engine with a capacity of 5.7 liters that can produce up to 381 horsepower and 401lb-ft of torque.

The Bottom Line

Given the above comparison, it must be quite clear that the 2018 Toyota Sequoia should be your preferred choice. It is an overall package offering full value of your money. Although the 2018 Volvo XC90 is a great competitor, but it misses out on a few things exclusive to the Toyota Sequoia.
