Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Mazda Mazda5 than the Volvo XC70. The Mazda Mazda5 will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Volvo XC70.

Convenience

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).
