2014 Subaru XV Crosstrek vs. 2015 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 XV Crosstrek than the Volvo V60. The Subaru XV Crosstrek will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Volvo V60.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Subaru XV Crosstrek as you will with the Volvo V60, as they get the same number of miles per 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). Based on MSRP, the Subaru XV Crosstrek 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. The Subaru XV Crosstrek carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Volvo V60.

Dimensions
Since the Subaru XV Crosstrek is much slimmer than the Volvo V60, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. The Subaru XV Crosstrek is slightly shorter than the Volvo V60, which may make it easier to park.

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

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Subaru XV Crosstrek 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
