2022 BMW X7 vs. 2022 Volvo XC90


The new BMW X7 surprised everyone with its super-aggressive look and modern technology features, but the engineers at Volvo were quick to respond. They deliver the 2022 XC90 to stand up against the new BMW. Both of these vehicles have a lot of advantages, but it’s important to look at them more closely to see which one is your favorite. Keep reading to learn more.

Design & Style

The new BMW comes with extra space for the driver and the passengers and it’s capable of moving around six people in great comfort. You also benefit from a premium interior featuring rich upholstery, wood trims, and LED ambient lighting. You’ll feel very comfortable in the BMW and the instrument cluster tells you everything you need to know about your car.

The Volvo also comes with a superb interior featuring premium, well-balanced materials. The driving position is comfortable, the seats are soft and welcoming, and everything is within the driver’s reach. However, the passengers in the third row might benefit from more leg and head space.

Technology & Safety

As you can imagine, both these vehicles are dripping with technology. For example, the BMW features a 12.3-inch infotainment panel with superb graphics and accessible menus. You get smartphone connectivity, a great audio system, and a plethora of safety features and driving aids to keep you stable on the road.

On the other hand, the new XC90 comes with a smaller touchscreen display that measures just 9 inches in size. This panel allows you to connect your smartphone through Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as well as turn on the superb sound system to listen to your favorite radio station. Many driving aids and safety features are standard, but for the semi-autonomous package you have to pay more.


When it comes to performance, the German engineer put a mighty 335 horsepower turbocharged engine in their new X7. This monster is coupled to an automatic transmission system, so you no longer have to shift gears manually. The car is also all-wheel drive which means that you get as much power as you need at the right time.

On the other hand, the Volvo comes with just 250 horsepower as standard and this powers the front-wheel drive system. You can get more power, but you need to pay more for the upgraded XC90 versions. Still, the car feels nimble through corners, you will be able to quickly overtake someone on the road, but your vehicle will not accelerate that fast if you have many passengers.

The Bottom Line

Hopefully, this article gave you the quick facts when it comes to the new X7 and the XC90. If you want a fast, comfortable, and more spacious car, you will never go wrong with the BMW.
