Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Cadillac XT6 than in the Volvo XC90. The Cadillac XT6 offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Volvo XC90, making it a little more comfortable for the driver and front passenger.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Cadillac XT6 as you will with the Volvo XC90, 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Cadillac XT6 will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Volvo XC90. 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 Cadillac XT6 and the Volvo XC90 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Cadillac XT6 is much slimmer than the Volvo XC90, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. When looking at overall length, the Cadillac XT6 takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Volvo XC90.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque engine, the Cadillac XT6 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 Cadillac XT6 for pulling heavy loads. The Cadillac XT6 has a little less horsepower than the Volvo XC90.

Utility
The Cadillac XT6 offers greater seating capacity than the Volvo XC90, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. The Cadillac XT6 has a roomier cargo area for putting your bags or other items than the Volvo XC90.

Warranty
The Cadillac XT6 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Volvo XC90.
