Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited than in the Volvo XC40. The Jeep Wrangler Unlimited will be popular with taller drivers and passengers in the front seat, due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Volvo XC40.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited as you will with the Volvo XC40, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a 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). Whether you pick the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited or the Volvo XC40, it's going to cost you about the same.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Volvo XC40.

Handling
The Jeep Wrangler Unlimited has a larger turning radius than the Volvo XC40, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited and the Volvo XC40. With the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited, you'll be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Volvo XC40.
