2017 Volvo XC60 vs. 2016 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

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).

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 somewhat higher torque, the Volvo XC60 transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Ford Flex.

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

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.
