2014 Ford Flex vs. 2014 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
With the Volvo XC90, 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). 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. Both the Ford Flex and the Volvo XC90 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Ford Flex is about the same width as the Volvo XC90. 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 XC90.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the Ford Flex transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Volvo XC90.

Handling
The Ford Flex has the same turning radius as the Volvo XC90, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

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 more 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.
