Comparison Review

Comfort
The Chevrolet Bolt EV offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Volvo V60 Cross Country with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. The Chevrolet Bolt EV will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Volvo V60 Cross Country.

Convenience
With the Volvo V60 Cross Country 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.

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). Based on MSRP, the Chevrolet Bolt EV is clearly a better financial choice over the Volvo V60 Cross Country. 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 carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Volvo V60 Cross Country.

Since the Chevrolet Bolt EV is much slimmer than the Volvo V60 Cross Country, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot.

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

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

Performance

Utility
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 Cross Country. The Chevrolet Bolt EV has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the Volvo V60 Cross Country.
