2014 GMC Acadia vs. 2014 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). When looking only at MSRP, the GMC Acadia will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Volvo XC90. 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 GMC Acadia and the Volvo XC90 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the GMC Acadia is much wider than the Volvo XC90, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. 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 XC90.

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

Handling
The GMC Acadia 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 GMC Acadia for pulling heavy loads. The GMC Acadia has a little more horsepower than the Volvo XC90.

Utility
The GMC Acadia offers greater seating capacity than the Volvo XC90, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. With the GMC Acadia, you'll be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Volvo XC90.

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