2015 Lexus RX 450h vs. 2016 Volvo XC90 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Lexus RX 450h offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Volvo XC90, 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 XC90.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Lexus RX 450h 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Lexus RX 450h will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Volvo XC90. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. In this case, the Lexus RX 450h will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Volvo XC90.

Dimensions
Since the Lexus RX 450h is much slimmer than the Volvo XC90, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. The Lexus RX 450h is slightly shorter than the Volvo XC90, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
The Lexus RX 450h has much lower torque than the Volvo XC90, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Lexus RX 450h has a lot less horsepower than the Volvo XC90.

Utility
The Lexus RX 450h has less seating than the Volvo XC90, making the Volvo XC90 the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The Lexus RX 450h has less cargo space than the Volvo XC90, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The Lexus RX 450h comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Volvo XC90.
