Deciding on which exciting new Volvo SUV in Escondido you want to invest in can be tricky as they each have defining features you'll love.

A Peppy Subcompact SUV: 2020 Volvo XC40

  • MPG: 23 city / 33 highway
  • Towing Capacity: Up to 3,500 lbs
  • Horsepower: From 187 to 248 depending on trim

The new Volvo XC40 may be the smallest SUV in the Volvo SUV lineup, but it boasts impressive powertrain options that zip this vehicle up to speed around San Marcos. One option is the base engine, which is a turbocharged four-cylinder that produces 187 horsepower. For more pep on your drive, upgrade to the available turbocharged four-cylinder engine that produces 248 horsepower.

With a smaller SUV like the new Volvo XC40, there may be worries of having enough storage space. Thankfully, the new XC40 comes with several unique storage features that will give you the ability to load any cargo or shopping bags you want. For instance, there are hooks in the rear storage area that will keep your bags in place and out of the way. There's also hidden storage compartments, like an available bin under the driver's seat, giving you more storage options in the cabin.

Feature-Filled and Comfortable: 2020 Volvo XC60

This compact Volvo SUV also comes with robust engine options, like its smaller brother, the XC40. However, the new Volvo XC60 stands out for its optional plug-in-hybrid T8 powertrain. This hybrid engine combines a gas motor with an electric motor, which produces an impressive 400 horsepower. On top of having ample power, you can also expect an outstandingly smooth ride. With the available air suspension, bumps and cracks will go completely unnoticed in the cabin.


Another perk of buying or leasing the 2020 Volvo XC60 is the added confidence you'll have when adventuring around Vista. Like the other Volvo SUVs, this model has an extensive list of standard and available safety technologies. This vehicle comes with features like run-off road mitigation, a driver drowsiness monitor, collision mitigation with active braking, and much more to keep everyone safe.

Where Luxury and Versatility Meet: 2020 Volvo XC90

Like its Volvo comrades, the 2020 Volvo XC90 also boasts multiple exciting powertrain options.

What makes this midsize SUV stand out is its ability to tow heavy loads. When properly equipped, the new XC90 can tow up to 5,000 pounds, meaning you can haul gear for outdoor escapades or weekend projects with no problems.

Since this is the largest option in the Volvo SUV lineup, you'll have more space for both occupants and cargo. With the second and third row of seats folded down, the new XC90 has 85.7 cubic feet of cargo room, easily eclipsing many rivals in this automotive class. The standard hands-free power liftgate makes loading any cargo near San Diego a breeze. Additionally, the cabin is equally spacious as it is luxurious.
