2016 Volvo XC90 vs. 2016 Lincoln MKX Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Lincoln MKX than in the Volvo XC90, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Lincoln MKX offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Volvo XC90, offering the driver and front passenger a bit more room and comfort.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Volvo XC90 as you will with the Lincoln MKX, 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 is somewhat more expensive than the Lincoln MKX. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Volvo XC90 will cost more in terms of transportation costs than the Lincoln MKX.

Dimensions
Since the Volvo XC90 is much wider than the Lincoln MKX, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Volvo XC90, which is slightly longer than the Lincoln MKX.

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

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

Utility
The Volvo XC90 offers greater seating capacity than the Lincoln MKX, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. The Volvo XC90 has a roomier cargo area for putting your bags or other items than the Lincoln MKX.

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