2017 GMC Acadia vs. 2016 Volvo XC60 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the GMC Acadia than in the Volvo XC60. The GMC Acadia 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 GMC Acadia, 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 GMC Acadia 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. In this case, the GMC Acadia will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Volvo XC60.

Dimensions
The GMC Acadia 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 GMC Acadia, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Volvo XC60.

Drivetrain
The GMC Acadia has much lower torque than the Volvo XC60, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The GMC Acadia has the same turning radius as the Volvo XC60, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

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

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

Warranty
The basic warranty of the GMC Acadia is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Volvo XC60.
