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 V90. The Ford Transit Connect will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Volvo V90.

Convenience
The Volvo V90 requires fewer visits to the gas station than the Ford Transit Connect, making it more convenient to drive.

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 V90. 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 V90.

Dimensions
Since the Ford Transit Connect is much slimmer than the Volvo V90, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. The Ford Transit Connect is slightly shorter than the Volvo V90, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
The Ford Transit Connect has much less torque than the Volvo V90, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The Ford Transit Connect has a larger turning radius than the Volvo V90, making it slightly 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 V90. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

Utility
The Ford Transit Connect offers greater seating capacity than the Volvo V90, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the Ford Transit Connect will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Volvo V90.
