2015 Volvo XC60 vs. 2015 Chevrolet Traverse Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Chevrolet Traverse than in the Volvo XC60, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Chevrolet Traverse will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the Volvo XC60.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Volvo XC60 as you will with the Chevrolet Traverse, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a 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 XC60 is somewhat more expensive than the Chevrolet Traverse. 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 XC60 will cost more in terms of transportation costs than the Chevrolet Traverse.

Dimensions
Since the Volvo XC60 is much slimmer than the Chevrolet Traverse, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the Volvo XC60, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Chevrolet Traverse.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque engine, the Volvo XC60 doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Chevrolet Traverse.

Handling
The Volvo XC60 has a smaller turning radius than the Chevrolet Traverse, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When considering towing capacity, the Volvo XC60 is clearly the choice over the Chevrolet Traverse for pulling heavy loads. The Volvo XC60 has a little less horsepower than the Chevrolet Traverse.

Utility
Soccer Moms beware - the Volvo XC60 seats a lot fewer people than the Chevrolet Traverse. The Volvo XC60 has significantly less cargo capacity than the Chevrolet Traverse.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Volvo XC60 than that of the Chevrolet Traverse.
