2014 Honda Pilot vs. 2014 Volvo XC90 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Honda Pilot than in the Volvo XC90. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Honda Pilot and the Volvo XC90.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Honda Pilot 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 Honda Pilot 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. The Honda Pilot carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Volvo XC90.

Dimensions
Since the Honda Pilot is much wider than the Volvo XC90, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. When looking at overall length, the Honda Pilot takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Volvo XC90.

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

Handling
The Honda Pilot has a smaller turning radius than the Volvo XC90, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Volvo XC90 is clearly the choice over the Honda Pilot for pulling heavy loads. The Honda Pilot has a little more horsepower than the Volvo XC90.

Utility
The Honda Pilot offers greater seating capacity than the Volvo XC90, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries in the Honda Pilot as you will in the Volvo XC90.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Honda Pilot is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Volvo XC90.
