2015 Mercedes-Benz M-Class vs. 2016 Volvo XC90 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Mercedes-Benz M-Class offers a bit more room for passengers in the back seat than the Volvo XC90. The Mercedes-Benz M-Class 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
The Mercedes-Benz M-Class requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Volvo XC90, 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 Mercedes-Benz M-Class 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 Mercedes-Benz M-Class will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Volvo XC90.

Dimensions
Since the Mercedes-Benz M-Class is much slimmer than the Volvo XC90, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. The Mercedes-Benz M-Class is slightly shorter than the Volvo XC90, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the Mercedes-Benz M-Class transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Volvo XC90.

Performance
When considering towing capacity, the Mercedes-Benz M-Class is clearly the choice over the Volvo XC90 for pulling heavy loads. The Mercedes-Benz M-Class has a little more horsepower than the Volvo XC90.

Utility
The Mercedes-Benz M-Class has less seating than the Volvo XC90, making the Volvo XC90 the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The Mercedes-Benz M-Class 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 Mercedes-Benz M-Class comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Volvo XC90.
