Land Rover Discovery vs XC90 Performance
Little is left to the imagination when it comes to figuring out which of these vehicles is more powerful. The entry-level 2019 Discovery features a 3.0-liter supercharged V6 engine, which is mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission. This engine delivers 340 horsepower, and is quick off the starting line when you need that acceleration.
The XC90 is no slouch when it comes to horsepower, but it’s not nearly as powerful as the Land Rover Discovery. The T5 model, which is the entry-level XC90, has a turbocharged 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine which makes 250 horsepower. It simply can’t match what the Land Rover Discovery is capable of. While there are other engines offered, that requires an upgrade, which you don’t have to make in the Discovery.
Towing may be something you’re considering, too. If you have a boat or trailer to bring on a weekend trip, the Discovery is certainly the SUV for you, with a towing capacity of over 8,000 lbs. The XC90, should you choose to tow, has a maximum capacity of just 5,000 lbs.

Discovery vs XC90 Off-Roading
Off-roading allows you to seek out a new adventure, an exciting way to see a new place or try new things. The Discovery comes with the latest version of the Terrain Response system, which helps you maintain control. The available Terrain Response 2 system is able to reconfigure the transmission, suspension, and traction settings, for the best possible traction both on and off the roadways.
The XC90 may feature available all-wheel-drive like the Discovery, but it doesn’t have the same kind of off-roading capability. If off-roading is what matters to you, then the Land Rover Discovery is the right SUV for your lifestyle.
Inside the Cabin
This is where you’ll be spending most of your time on trips through Marlboro and Freehold, so it’s important that the cabin is to your liking.
The Land Rover Discovery has up to 88.3 cu. ft. of cargo space with the rear seats folded down, plenty of room for your golf bags, luggage, or even the groceries. Whether you’re running errands or having fun, you’ll have more than enough room. The Volvo XC90 is spacious, but offers just about 85 cu. ft. of cargo space, shy of what the Discovery offers.
As for infotainment, the Land Rover Discovery comes with a 10-inch touchscreen, which is larger than the 9-inch offering found in the XC90. Once again, the Discovery bests the XC90. You may be sensing a theme here.
