Which of these highfalutin’ crossovers would YOU rather park in your garage? It’s a tough choice!

Volvo is getting back into the game. This Chinese-owned Swedish brand has been on the sidelines of the industry for years now but at long last they’ve released a new vehicle, their XC90 crossover, a product that looks like it was well worth the wait.

But the company’s rivals in Stuttgart aren’t going to let them just waltz in and take over. Mercedes-Benz’s newly christened GEL-Class offers ruggedness and luxury plus a lineup of muscular engines. This is a tough choice!

Curious which one of these two luxurious crossovers has a technological edge? Compare them directly right here.
