Comparison Review

Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Volvo XC40 than in the Lexus UX 250h, 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 UX 250h and the Volvo XC40.

The Volvo XC40 requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Lexus UX 250h, making it more convenient to drive.

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). When looking only at MSRP, the Lexus UX 250h will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Volvo XC40. 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 UX 250h will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Volvo XC40.

The Lexus UX 250h is a little narrower than the Volvo XC40, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. When looking at overall length, the Lexus UX 250h takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Volvo XC40.

The Lexus UX 250h has a significantly smaller turning radius than the Volvo XC40, allowing you to much more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Lexus UX 250h and the Volvo XC40.

The Lexus UX 250h comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Volvo XC40.
