2015 Lexus RX 450h vs. 2014 Volvo XC90 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Lexus RX 450h than in the Volvo XC90. The Lexus RX 450h offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Volvo XC90, making it a little more comfortable for the driver and front passenger.

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. Both the Lexus RX 450h and the Volvo XC90 have similar Destination Charges.

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 similar torque, the Lexus RX 450h and the Volvo XC90 are about even in transmitting their respective horsepower to the wheels.

Handling
The Lexus RX 450h has a smaller turning radius than the Volvo XC90, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of horsepower, it's a virtual tie between the Lexus RX 450h and 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.
