2017 Lexus RX 350 vs. 2017 Volvo XC60 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Lexus RX 350 than in the Volvo XC60. The Lexus RX 350 will be popular with taller drivers and passengers in the front seat, due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Volvo XC60.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Lexus RX 350 as you will with the Volvo XC60, 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 Lexus RX 350 will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Volvo XC60. 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 Lexus RX 350 and the Volvo XC60 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Lexus RX 350 is about the same width as the Volvo XC60. If you go with the Lexus RX 350, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Volvo XC60.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque engine, the Lexus RX 350 doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Volvo XC60.

Handling
The Lexus RX 350 has a significantly larger turning radius than the Volvo XC60, making it much more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
If you've got something you need to pull, the Lexus RX 350 will do just as well as the Volvo XC60, since they have about the same towing capacity. The Lexus RX 350 has a little less 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 Lexus RX 350 and the Volvo XC60. The Lexus RX 350 has less cargo space than the Volvo XC60, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The Lexus RX 350 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Volvo XC60.
