Comparison Review

The Chevrolet Bolt EV offers a bit more room for passengers in the back seat than the Volvo V60. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Volvo V60, the Chevrolet Bolt EV may be a little roomier and more comfortable for the driver and front seat passengers.

With the Volvo V60 you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the Chevrolet Bolt EV, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

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 Chevrolet Bolt EV will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Volvo V60. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Chevrolet Bolt EV and the Volvo V60 have similar Destination Charges.

Since the Chevrolet Bolt EV is much slimmer than the Volvo V60, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the Chevrolet Bolt EV, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Volvo V60.

With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Chevrolet Bolt EV transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Volvo V60.

The Chevrolet Bolt EV has a smaller turning radius than the Volvo V60, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

When it comes to horsepower, the Chevrolet Bolt EV is significantly less powerful than the Volvo V60. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Chevrolet Bolt EV and the Volvo V60. The Chevrolet Bolt EV has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the Volvo V60.

The basic warranty of the Chevrolet Bolt EV is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Volvo V60.
