2016 Volvo XC90 vs. 2015 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 XC90, 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 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 Ford Flex, 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). The Volvo XC90 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. The Destination Charge for the Volvo XC90 is much higher than that for the Ford Flex.

Dimensions
Since the Volvo XC90 is much wider than the Ford Flex, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. The Volvo XC90 is slightly shorter than the Ford Flex, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the Volvo XC90 transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Ford Flex.

Performance
When considering towing capacity, the Volvo XC90 is clearly the choice over the Ford Flex for pulling heavy loads. The Volvo XC90 has a little more horsepower than the Ford Flex.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Volvo XC90 and the Ford Flex. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries in the Volvo XC90 as you will in the Ford Flex.

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