2016 Ford Flex vs. 2016 Volvo XC60 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Ford Flex than in the Volvo XC60. The Ford Flex will be popular with taller drivers and passengers in the front seat, due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Volvo XC60.

Convenience
With the Volvo XC60, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Ford Flex, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

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). When looking only at MSRP, the Ford Flex will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Volvo XC60. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Ford Flex carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Volvo XC60.

Dimensions
The Ford Flex is a little wider than the Volvo XC60, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. If you go with the Ford Flex, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Volvo XC60.

Drivetrain
With similar torque, the Ford Flex and the Volvo XC60 are about even in transmitting their respective horsepower to the wheels.

Handling
The Ford Flex has a larger turning radius than the Volvo XC60, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Volvo XC60 is clearly the choice over the Ford Flex for pulling heavy loads. The Ford Flex has a little more horsepower than the Volvo XC60.

Utility
The Ford Flex offers greater seating capacity than the Volvo XC60, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. The Ford Flex has a roomier cargo area for putting your bags or other items than the Volvo XC60.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Ford Flex is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Volvo XC60.
