2017 GMC Acadia vs. 2017 Volvo XC90 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the GMC Acadia than in the Volvo XC90. The GMC Acadia offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Volvo XC90, making it a little more comfortable for the driver and front passenger.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the GMC Acadia 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 GMC Acadia 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. In this case, the GMC Acadia will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Volvo XC90.

Dimensions
Since the GMC Acadia is much slimmer than the Volvo XC90, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. When looking at overall length, the GMC Acadia takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Volvo XC90.

Drivetrain
The GMC Acadia has much lower torque than the Volvo XC90, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Volvo XC90 is clearly the choice over the GMC Acadia for pulling heavy loads. In terms of horsepower, it's a virtual tie between the GMC Acadia and the Volvo XC90.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the GMC Acadia and the Volvo XC90. The GMC Acadia has less cargo space than the Volvo XC90, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the GMC Acadia is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Volvo XC90.
