Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Ford Transit Connect than the Volvo V60. The Ford Transit Connect will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Volvo V60.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Ford Transit Connect as you will with the Volvo V60, as they get the same number of miles per 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). Based on MSRP, the Ford Transit Connect is clearly a better financial choice over 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 Destination Charge for the Ford Transit Connect is much higher than that for the Volvo V60.

Drivetrain
The Ford Transit Connect has much less torque than the Volvo V60, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The Ford Transit Connect has a significantly larger turning radius than the Volvo V60, making it much more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

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

With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the Ford Transit Connect will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Volvo V60.
