Comparison Review

The Lexus NX 350h offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Volvo XC40, with comparable head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Lexus NX 350h and the Volvo XC40.

Due to the larger tank size and better fuel economy of the Lexus NX 350h, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Volvo XC40.

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 NX 350h is somewhat more expensive than the Volvo XC40.

Since the Lexus NX 350h is much slimmer than the Volvo XC40, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Lexus NX 350h, which is slightly longer than the Volvo XC40.

The Lexus NX 350h has a larger turning radius than the Volvo XC40, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

In terms of towing capacity, the Volvo XC40 is clearly the choice over the Lexus NX 350h for pulling heavy loads. In terms of horsepower, it's a virtual tie between the Lexus NX 350h and the Volvo XC40.

The Lexus NX 350h has much lower torque than the Volvo XC40, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Lexus NX 350h and the Volvo XC40. The Lexus NX 350h has significantly less cargo capacity than the Volvo XC40.
