2016 Volvo V60 vs. 2016 Volvo XC70 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Volvo XC70 than the Volvo V60, due to its greater head- and legroom. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Volvo XC70, the Volvo V60 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 Volvo V60 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). The Volvo V60 is somewhat more expensive than 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 Volvo V60 and the Volvo XC70 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Volvo V60 is about the same width as the Volvo XC70. The Volvo V60 is slightly shorter than the Volvo XC70, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
With similar torque, the Volvo V60 and the Volvo XC70 do an equal job of transmitting their engine's power to their wheels.

Handling
The Volvo V60 has a larger turning radius than the Volvo XC70, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of horsepower, it's basically a tie between the Volvo V60 and the Volvo XC70.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Volvo V60 and the Volvo XC70. The Volvo V60 has significantly less cargo room than the Volvo XC70, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.

Warranty
The Volvo V60 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Volvo XC70.
