2015 Volvo XC60 vs. 2016 Volvo XC90 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat may find themselves a little more cramped in the Volvo XC60 than the Volvo XC90. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Volvo XC60 and the Volvo XC90.

Convenience
The Volvo XC60 requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Volvo XC90, 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). Clearly, the Volvo XC60 is a better financial choice over the Volvo XC90, when considering MSRP. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. In this case, the Volvo XC60 will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Volvo XC90.

Dimensions
Since the Volvo XC60 is much slimmer than the Volvo XC90, 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 Volvo XC90.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque engine, the Volvo XC60 doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Volvo XC90.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Volvo XC90 is clearly the choice over the Volvo XC60 for pulling heavy loads. When it comes to horsepower, the Volvo XC60 has a lot less horsepower than the Volvo XC90.

Utility
The Volvo XC60 has less seating than the Volvo XC90, making the Volvo XC90 the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The Volvo XC60 has significantly less cargo capacity than the Volvo XC90.

Warranty
The Volvo XC60 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Volvo XC90.
