Comparison Review

The GMC Acadia offers a bit more room for passengers in the back seat than the Volvo XC90. 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 XC90.

Convenience

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.

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