Comparison Review

Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Toyota Avalon Hybrid than the Volvo S60. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Toyota Avalon Hybrid and the Volvo S60 in the front seats.

The Toyota Avalon Hybrid will require fewer stops at the gas station than the Volvo S60, 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 Toyota Avalon Hybrid will have less of an impact on your bank account 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 Toyota Avalon Hybrid and the Volvo S60 have similar Destination Charges.

The Toyota Avalon Hybrid is about the same width as the Volvo S60. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Toyota Avalon Hybrid, which is slightly longer than the Volvo S60.

The Toyota Avalon Hybrid has much less torque than the Volvo S60, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

The Toyota Avalon Hybrid has a larger turning radius than the Volvo S60, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

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

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

The basic warranty of the Toyota Avalon Hybrid is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Volvo S60.
