Comparison Review

Comfort
The Jaguar XE offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Volvo S60 with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Jaguar XE, drivers may find the Volvo S60 a little roomier and somewhat more comfortable.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Jaguar XE as you will with the Volvo S60, 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). The Jaguar XE is somewhat more expensive than the Volvo S60. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Jaguar XE will cost more in transportation costs than the Volvo S60.

Dimensions
Since the Jaguar XE is much wider than the Volvo S60, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. When looking at overall length, the Jaguar XE takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Volvo S60.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the Jaguar XE doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Volvo S60.

Handling
The Jaguar XE has about the same turning radius as the Volvo S60, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Jaguar XE is significantly less powerful than the Volvo S60. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Jaguar XE and the Volvo S60. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the Jaguar XE will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Volvo S60.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Jaguar XE than that of the Volvo S60.
