2014 Volvo XC90 vs. 2015 Chevrolet Tahoe Review

Comparison Review


Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Chevrolet Tahoe than in the Volvo XC90, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Chevrolet Tahoe will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the Volvo XC90.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Volvo XC90 as you will with the Chevrolet Tahoe, 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). Clearly, the Volvo XC90 is a better financial choice over the Chevrolet Tahoe, 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 XC90 will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Chevrolet Tahoe.

Dimensions
Since the Volvo XC90 is much slimmer than the Chevrolet Tahoe, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the Volvo XC90, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Chevrolet Tahoe.

Drivetrain
The Volvo XC90 has much lower torque than the Chevrolet Tahoe, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The Volvo XC90 has a larger turning radius than the Chevrolet Tahoe, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

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

Utility
The Volvo XC90 has less seating than the Chevrolet Tahoe, making the Chevrolet Tahoe the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The Volvo XC90 has less cargo space than the Chevrolet Tahoe, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Volvo XC90 than that of the Chevrolet Tahoe.
