2016 Toyota Avalon Hybrid vs. 2017 Volvo S60 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 Toyota Avalon Hybrid than the Volvo S60. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Toyota Avalon Hybrid, drivers may find the Volvo S60 a little roomier and somewhat more comfortable.

Convenience
The Toyota Avalon Hybrid will require fewer stops at the gas station than the Volvo S60, 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 Toyota Avalon Hybrid is clearly a better financial choice over the Volvo S60. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Toyota Avalon Hybrid carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Volvo S60.

Dimensions
The Toyota Avalon Hybrid is a little narrower than the Volvo S60, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. If you go with the Toyota Avalon Hybrid, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Volvo S60.

Drivetrain
The Toyota Avalon Hybrid has much less torque than the Volvo S60, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The Toyota Avalon Hybrid has a larger turning radius than the Volvo S60, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Toyota Avalon Hybrid is significantly less powerful than the Volvo S60. 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 Toyota Avalon Hybrid and the Volvo S60. The Toyota Avalon Hybrid has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the Volvo S60.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Toyota Avalon Hybrid is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Volvo S60.
