2014 Volvo XC90 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 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
The Volvo XC90 requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Ford Flex, 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). 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. Both the Volvo XC90 and the Ford Flex have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Volvo XC90 is about the same width as the Ford Flex. 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 Ford Flex.

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

Handling
The Volvo XC90 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 XC90 is clearly the choice over the Ford Flex for pulling heavy loads. The Volvo XC90 has a little less 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.
