2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee vs. 2016 Volvo XC60 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Jeep Grand Cherokee than in the Volvo XC60. The Jeep Grand Cherokee offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Volvo XC60, making it a little more comfortable for the driver and front passenger.

Convenience
The Jeep Grand Cherokee requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Volvo XC60, making it more convenient to drive.

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). Whether you pick the Jeep Grand Cherokee or the Volvo XC60, it's going to cost you about the same. 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 Jeep Grand Cherokee and the Volvo XC60 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Jeep Grand Cherokee is much wider than the Volvo XC60, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Jeep Grand Cherokee, which is slightly longer than the Volvo XC60.

Drivetrain
With similar torque, the Jeep Grand Cherokee and the Volvo XC60 are about even in transmitting their respective horsepower to the wheels.

Handling
The Jeep Grand Cherokee has a smaller turning radius than the Volvo XC60, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
If you've got something you need to pull, the Jeep Grand Cherokee will do just as well as the Volvo XC60, since they have about the same towing capacity. The Jeep Grand Cherokee has a little more horsepower than the Volvo XC60.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Jeep Grand Cherokee and the Volvo XC60. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries in the Jeep Grand Cherokee as you will in the Volvo XC60.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Jeep Grand Cherokee is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Volvo XC60.
