2015 Lexus RX 450h vs. 2015 Volvo XC60 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Lexus RX 450h offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Volvo XC60, with comparable head- and legroom. 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. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Lexus RX 450h, which is slightly longer than 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
In terms of horsepower, it's a virtual tie between the Lexus RX 450h and 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 a roomier cargo area for putting your bags or other items than the Volvo XC60.

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