2015 Toyota Prius v vs. 2015 Volvo XC70 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Toyota Prius v offers a bit more room for passengers in the back seat than the Volvo XC70. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Volvo XC70, the Toyota Prius v may be a little roomier and more comfortable for the driver and front seat passengers.

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 XC70, 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 XC70. 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 XC70.

Dimensions
Since the Toyota Prius v is much slimmer than the Volvo XC70, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. The Toyota Prius v is slightly shorter than the Volvo XC70, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
The Toyota Prius v has much less torque than the Volvo XC70, 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 XC70, 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 XC70. 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 XC70. The Toyota Prius v has less cargo capacity than the Volvo XC70, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Toyota Prius v is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Volvo XC70.
