Volvo XC90 vs. INFINITI QX60: Available Trims

The available trims in the INFINITI QX60 vs. Volvo XC90 comparison can help you decide which vehicle to buy.

The Volvo XC90 is available in five trims, three of which are plug-in hybrid vehicles. This means that, while the Volvo XC90 has more available trims than the INFINITI QX60, it's perhaps easier to choose which one is right for you. After deciding whether or not you want a plug-in hybrid, you have just two or three trims left to choose from. The five options are:

  • Momentum
  • Inscription
  • Recharge
  • Recharge R-Design
  • Recharge Inscription

The Momentum and Recharge trims are comparable in that they're the entry-level choices for the gasoline-only and hybrid models, respectively. The Inscription versions of the vehicles are top-tier options packed with features and technology. The Recharge R-Design offers a nice mid-trim hybrid option.

Due to its better range of trim options, the Volvo XC90 wins the Volvo XC90 vs. QX60 trims matchup category. It offers more value for your money; we'll explore just why that is below. There are a few other topics to check out, including the relative strengths of these vehicles' engines.

The INFINITI SUV has four available trims:

  • Pure
  • Luxe
  • Sensory
  • Autograph

These trims offer luxury appointments, though the INFINITI QX60 Autograph, of course, has more features and better materials than one finds on the entry-level Pure trim. One noticeable absence from the INFINITI QX60 trim lineup is the lack of a hybrid vehicle.

Volvo XC90 vs. INFINITI QX60: Performance Specs

The next frontier in our QX60 vs. Volvo XC90 comparison is that of their respective performance. The INFINITI QX60 has just one available engine, so we'll start there. It is powered by a 3.5-liter V-6 engine that makes 295 horsepower and 270 pound-feet of torque. This is a pretty stout engine that will serve you well on the road.

When we compare Volvo XC90 and INFINITI QX60, however, we see that the Volvo SUV has better engine options. The base powertrain, called the T5, is a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder that gets 250 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. While those numbers are lower than the QX60, the T5 version of the Volvo XC90 gets better gas mileage.

The upgraded Volvo engines are where things get really fun. The T6 configuration adds a supercharger to the T5 powertrain, raising the horsepower output to 316 ponies. This engine option surpasses that offered by the QX60, but Volvo Cars isn't done yet.

The Recharge models add a battery-and-motor system that raises the horsepower output to 455 with the Extended Range upgrade. That's real power, and the Recharge models will help you save a bundle at the pump during this time of high fuel prices.

Volvo XC90 vs. INFINITI QX60: Dimensions

The last aspect of our Volvo XC90 vs. INFINITI QX60 comparison is the dimensions of the vehicles. The INFINITI QX60 is 198.2 inches long, 78 inches wide, and 69.7 inches tall.

The Volvo XC90 is 195 inches long, 75.7 inches wide, and 69.9 inches tall. These smaller dimensions make it easier to park and maneuver on the road.
