2017 Nissan Armada vs. 2017 Volvo XC90 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
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.

Convenience
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.

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). Whether you pick the Nissan Armada or the Volvo XC90, it's going to cost you about the same. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Destination Charge for the Nissan Armada is much higher than that for the Volvo XC90.

Dimensions
The Nissan Armada is a little wider than the Volvo XC90, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. 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.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the Nissan Armada does a much better job of transmitting its engine's horsepower to its wheels than the Volvo XC90.

Handling
The Nissan Armada has a larger turning radius than the Volvo XC90, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When considering towing capacity, the Nissan Armada is clearly the choice over the Volvo XC90 for pulling heavy loads. The Nissan Armada has a little more horsepower than the Volvo XC90.

Utility
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.

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