2017 Subaru Outback vs. 2016 Volvo V60 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Subaru Outback than the Volvo V60. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Subaru Outback and the Volvo V60 in the front seats.

Convenience
The Subaru Outback will require fewer stops at the gas station than the Volvo V60, 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). Based on MSRP, the Subaru Outback is clearly a better financial choice over the Volvo V60. 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 Subaru Outback will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Volvo V60.

Dimensions
The Subaru Outback is a little narrower than the Volvo V60, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Subaru Outback, which is slightly longer than the Volvo V60.

Drivetrain
The Subaru Outback has much less torque than the Volvo V60, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The Subaru Outback has a smaller turning radius than the Volvo V60, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Subaru Outback is significantly less powerful than the Volvo V60. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Subaru Outback and the Volvo V60. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the Subaru Outback will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Volvo V60.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Subaru Outback is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Volvo V60.
