Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Chevrolet Suburban than in the Volvo XC60 Hybrid. The Chevrolet Suburban will be popular with taller drivers and passengers in the front seat, due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Volvo XC60 Hybrid.

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). Whether you pick the Chevrolet Suburban or the Volvo XC60 Hybrid, it's going to cost you about the same. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Destination Charge for the Chevrolet Suburban is much higher than that for the Volvo XC60 Hybrid.

Dimensions
Since the Chevrolet Suburban is much wider than the Volvo XC60 Hybrid, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the Chevrolet Suburban, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Volvo XC60 Hybrid.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the Chevrolet Suburban transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Volvo XC60 Hybrid.

Handling
The Chevrolet Suburban has a significantly larger turning radius than the Volvo XC60 Hybrid, making it much more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When considering towing capacity, the Chevrolet Suburban is clearly the choice over the Volvo XC60 Hybrid for pulling heavy loads. The Chevrolet Suburban has a little more horsepower than the Volvo XC60 Hybrid.

Utility
Soccer Moms and those who need to chauffeur around a lot of people will appreciate the Chevrolet Suburban more than the Volvo XC60 Hybrid, due to its significantly greater seating capacity.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Chevrolet Suburban is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Volvo XC60 Hybrid.
