2014 Toyota Prius v 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 Toyota Prius v than the Volvo V60. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Toyota Prius v and the Volvo V60 in the front seats.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Toyota Prius v 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 Toyota Prius v 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 Toyota Prius v carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Volvo V60.

Dimensions
Since the Toyota Prius v is much slimmer than the Volvo V60, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. When looking at overall length, the Toyota Prius v takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Volvo V60.

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

Handling
The Toyota Prius v 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 Toyota Prius v 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 Toyota Prius v and the Volvo V60. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the Toyota Prius v will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Volvo V60.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Toyota Prius v is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Volvo V60.
