2015 Volvo XC60 vs. 2014 Ford Flex Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Ford Flex than in the Volvo XC60, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Ford Flex 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
Due to the larger tank size and better fuel economy of the Volvo XC60, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Ford Flex.

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 will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Ford Flex, which has a much lower MSRP. 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 Ford Flex have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Volvo XC60 is much slimmer than the Ford Flex, 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 Ford Flex.

Drivetrain
With similar torque, the Volvo XC60 and the Ford Flex are about even in transmitting their respective horsepower to the wheels.

Handling
The Volvo XC60 has a smaller turning radius than the Ford Flex, 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 Ford Flex for pulling heavy loads. The Volvo XC60 has a little less horsepower than the Ford Flex.

Utility
The Volvo XC60 has less seating than the Ford Flex, making the Ford Flex the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The Volvo XC60 has significantly less cargo capacity than the Ford Flex.

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