2015 Volkswagen Touareg vs. 2016 Volvo XC90 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Volkswagen Touareg offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Volvo XC90, with comparable head- and legroom. The Volkswagen Touareg offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Volvo XC90, making it a little more comfortable for the driver and front passenger.

Convenience
Due to the larger tank size and better fuel economy of the Volkswagen Touareg, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Volvo XC90.

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). Whether you pick the Volkswagen Touareg or the Volvo XC90, it's going to cost you about the same. 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 Volkswagen Touareg will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Volvo XC90.

Dimensions
Since the Volkswagen Touareg is much slimmer than the Volvo XC90, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. The Volkswagen Touareg is slightly shorter than the Volvo XC90, which may make it easier to park.

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

Performance
When considering towing capacity, the Volkswagen Touareg is clearly the choice over the Volvo XC90 for pulling heavy loads. The Volkswagen Touareg has a little less horsepower than the Volvo XC90.

Utility
The Volkswagen Touareg has less seating than the Volvo XC90, making the Volvo XC90 the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The Volkswagen Touareg has significantly less cargo capacity than the Volvo XC90.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Volkswagen Touareg is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Volvo XC90.
