2016 Chrysler 300 vs. 2017 Volvo S60 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Chrysler 300 than the Volvo S60. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Chrysler 300 and the Volvo S60 in the front seats.

Convenience
The Volvo S60 requires fewer visits to the gas station than the Chrysler 300, making it more convenient to drive.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). Based on MSRP, the Chrysler 300 is clearly a better financial choice over the Volvo S60. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Chrysler 300 will cost more in transportation costs than the Volvo S60.

Dimensions
Since the Chrysler 300 is much wider than the Volvo S60, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the Chrysler 300, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Volvo S60.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the Chrysler 300 doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Volvo S60.

Handling
The Chrysler 300 has about the same turning radius as the Volvo S60, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Chrysler 300 has less horsepower than the Volvo S60, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Chrysler 300 and the Volvo S60. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the Chrysler 300 will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Volvo S60.

Warranty
The basic warranty for the Chrysler 300 offers a little more coverage than the basic warranty of the Volvo S60 in terms of months/miles.
