2015 Volvo V60 vs. 2015 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
The Volvo V60 will require fewer stops at the gas station than the Volvo XC70, making it more convenient to drive.

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 Volvo V60 will have less of an impact on your bank account 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 its lower torque, the Volvo V60 doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Volvo XC70.

Handling
The Volvo V60 has about the same turning radius as the Volvo XC70, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Volvo V60 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 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.
