2013 Toyota Highlander Hybrid vs. 2014 Volvo XC90 Review

Comparison Review


Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Toyota Highlander Hybrid than in the Volvo XC90. The Toyota Highlander Hybrid 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 Toyota Highlander Hybrid 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Toyota Highlander Hybrid 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. In this case, the Toyota Highlander Hybrid will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Volvo XC90.

Dimensions
The Toyota Highlander Hybrid is a little narrower than the Volvo XC90, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. When looking at overall length, the Toyota Highlander Hybrid takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Volvo XC90.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque engine, the Toyota Highlander Hybrid doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Volvo XC90.

Handling
The Toyota Highlander Hybrid has a smaller turning radius than the Volvo XC90, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
With the Volvo XC90, you'll be able to pull heavier loads than with the Toyota Highlander Hybrid. The Toyota Highlander Hybrid has a little less horsepower than the Volvo XC90.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Toyota Highlander Hybrid and the Volvo XC90. The Toyota Highlander Hybrid has a roomier cargo area for putting your bags or other items than the Volvo XC90.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Toyota Highlander Hybrid is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Volvo XC90.
