Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Volvo XC60 than in the Lexus GX 460, due to its greater head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Lexus GX 460 and the Volvo XC60.

Convenience
With the Volvo XC60, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Lexus GX 460, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

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 Lexus GX 460 is somewhat more expensive than the Volvo XC60. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. In this case, the Lexus GX 460 will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Volvo XC60.

Dimensions
The Lexus GX 460 is about the same width as the Volvo XC60. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Lexus GX 460, which is slightly longer than the Volvo XC60.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the Lexus GX 460 transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Volvo XC60.

Handling
The Lexus GX 460 has the same turning radius as the Volvo XC60, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When considering towing capacity, the Lexus GX 460 is clearly the choice over the Volvo XC60 for pulling heavy loads. The Lexus GX 460 has a little more horsepower than the Volvo XC60.

Utility
The Lexus GX 460 offers greater seating capacity than the Volvo XC60, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries in the Lexus GX 460 as you will in the Volvo XC60.

Warranty
The Lexus GX 460 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Volvo XC60.
