2019 Volvo XC90

2019 Mercedes-Benz GLS vs. 2019 Volvo XC90

The 2019 Mercedes-Benz GLS is a second-generation GLS. Its massive size can comfortably seat up to seven passengers. It is the biggest in terms of mass and volume and is presented as a family-hauler. The latest version has the technology, ample luxury, and a competent wheelbase to back its claim of being the best in the large luxury SUV segment.

The 2019 Volvo XC90 is a fitting choice if you are looking for a vehicle to match against the GLS. The latest version offers style, luxury, and practicality just like the GLS.

Design & Style

The old-school styling of the latest GLS is refreshed with a wider grille, LED lighting, a prominent Mercedes-Benz logo, and the strong horizontal bars up front. The cabin is styled with luxurious elements such as a variety of leather stitching patterns and the choice of either wood veneer or carbon fiber for the interior features.

The latest XC90 has not really changed that much since the last version. Subtle improvements on the LED headlights, taillights, and the wheel designs are not too prominent but look impressive. Inside its cabin is an understated styling using fine materials.

Technology & Safety

Buyers will have plenty to love about the tech features of the GLS. Aside from an already impressive base setup, there are many upgrade options to make the infotainment system as entertaining as it can be on the road. Its standard safety features are commendable, especially the driver attention monitor.

Volvo is known to give their best in terms of technology. The XC90’s infotainment system, however, seems to have a lot of things going on. Yes, the design is good and it is really attractive. The problem is that it can be pretty difficult to learn the functions because everything was thrown for the user. Thankfully, there is a handsome set of safety tech to lessen the dangers of getting distracted from the confusing audio and navigation systems.


A car its size needs a massive engine. The GLS is well-equipped even with the base model. The turbocharged V6 engine is powerful enough to produce 362 hp and 369 lb-ft of torque. Aside from a powerful engine, the GLS has a variety of features, like the Active Curve System, to make each ride as smooth and safe as possible.

The T5 is the XC90’s base model and it is equipped with a 2.0-liter engine for a 250 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque. While the engine is quick off the line, it can run easily out of breath. Driving on a hot day can be a problem since the XC90’s performance is significantly affected in high temperatures.

The Bottom Line

There is no doubt about it; the 2019 Mercedes-Benz GLS is an impressive car from its exterior down to its core. Many of its standard features are exceptionally good that an upgrade may be completely avoided.
