2018 Volvo XC60 vs. 2018 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
The Chevrolet Traverse requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Volvo XC60, 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). 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. Both the Volvo XC60 and the Chevrolet Traverse have similar Destination Charges.

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.

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

Utility
The Volvo XC60 has less seating than the Chevrolet Traverse, making the Chevrolet Traverse the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers.

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