When you buy the 2021 Volvo XC90, you get to experience unmatched Scandinavian luxury, bold and expressive SUV design, and premium safety features. MD drivers in the market for an SUV may also want to test drive other similar-seeming SUVs like the 2021 Toyota 4Runner. Here is a comparison between the two.


SUV buyers are primarily looking for a vehicle with versatile and impressive power numbers. The new Volvo SUV fits the bill in this regard, offering four different powertrain options:

  • T5 front-wheel-drive (with 250 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque)
  • T5 all-wheel-drive (with 250 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque)
  • T6 all-wheel-drive (with 316 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque)
  • Recharge T8 e-all-wheel-drive Plug-in Hybrid (400 horsepower and 472 lb-ft of torque)

The Recharge T8 Plug-in Hybrid engine is the primary difference-maker between this Volvo SUV and the competition, as it allows you to combine a performance-focused driving experience with impressive fuel-efficiency. With this engine, your driving range is 520 miles on a single tank, while achieving 55 miles per gallon-e.

In comparison, the Toyota 4Runner only comes with one engine, which cranks out 270 horsepower and 278 lb-ft of torque. There is no hybrid option.


Another one of the main draws of the 2021 Volvo XC90 is its stunning Swedish design. The SUV revels in its three unique model configurations, allowing drivers to choose one that suits their personality. Drivers can opt for either a six- or seven-passenger cabin configuration, and the available leatherette or Nappa perforated interior upholstery options offer unmatched luxury and comfort.

The 2021 Toyota 4Runner offers slightly fewer configuration options. You will not find the luxurious Scandinavian design or the available Nappa leather.
