2015 Nissan Armada vs. 2016 Volvo XC90 Review

Comparison Review

Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Nissan Armada than in the Volvo XC90. The Nissan Armada will be popular with taller drivers and passengers in the front seat, due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Volvo XC90.

You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Nissan Armada as you will with the Volvo XC90, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a tank of gas.

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 Nissan Armada 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. Both the Nissan Armada and the Volvo XC90 have similar Destination Charges.

The Nissan Armada is about the same width as the Volvo XC90. If you go with the Nissan Armada, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Volvo XC90.

With somewhat higher torque, the Nissan Armada transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Volvo XC90.

When considering towing capacity, the Nissan Armada is clearly the choice over the Volvo XC90 for pulling heavy loads. In terms of horsepower, it's a virtual tie between the Nissan Armada and the Volvo XC90.

The Nissan Armada offers greater seating capacity than the Volvo XC90, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. The Nissan Armada has a roomier cargo area for putting your bags or other items than the Volvo XC90.

The basic warranty of the Nissan Armada is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Volvo XC90.
