2016 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). The Lexus RX 450h is somewhat more expensive 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. When looking at overall length, the Lexus RX 450h takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Volvo XC90.

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 XC90.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Volvo XC90 is clearly the choice over the Lexus RX 450h for pulling heavy loads. The Lexus RX 450h has a little 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 significantly less cargo capacity than the Volvo XC90.

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