2016 Lexus RX 450h vs. 2016 Volvo XC60 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Lexus RX 450h than in the Volvo XC60. The Lexus RX 450h 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
The Volvo XC60 requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Lexus RX 450h, 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). The Lexus RX 450h is somewhat more expensive 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 450h and the Volvo XC60 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Lexus RX 450h is about the same width as the Volvo XC60. If you go with the Lexus RX 450h, 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 450h doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Volvo XC60.

Handling
The Lexus RX 450h has the same turning radius as the Volvo XC60, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

Performance
If you've got something you need to pull, the Lexus RX 450h will do just as well as the Volvo XC60, since they have about the same towing capacity. The Lexus RX 450h 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 Lexus RX 450h and the Volvo XC60. The Lexus RX 450h has significantly less cargo capacity than the Volvo XC60.

Warranty
The Lexus RX 450h comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Volvo XC60.
