2015 Ford Flex vs. 2016 Volvo XC90 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Ford Flex than in the Volvo XC90. 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 XC90.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Ford Flex as you will with the Volvo XC90, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a tank of gas.

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). Clearly, the Ford Flex is a better financial choice over the Volvo XC90, when considering MSRP. 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 XC90.

Dimensions
Since the Ford Flex is much slimmer than the Volvo XC90, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Ford Flex, which is slightly longer than the Volvo XC90.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque engine, the Ford Flex doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Volvo XC90.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Volvo XC90 is clearly the choice over the Ford Flex for pulling heavy loads. The Ford Flex has a little less horsepower than the Volvo XC90.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Ford Flex and the Volvo XC90. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries in the Ford Flex as you will in the Volvo XC90.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Ford Flex is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Volvo XC90.
