Comparison Review

Comfort
The Toyota Sequoia offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Volvo XC90, with comparable head- and legroom. The Volvo XC90 will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the Toyota Sequoia.

Convenience

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 Destination Charge for the Toyota Sequoia is much higher than that for the Volvo XC90.

Dimensions
The Toyota Sequoia is a little wider than the Volvo XC90, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Toyota Sequoia, which is slightly longer than the Volvo XC90.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the Toyota Sequoia does a much better job of transmitting its engine's horsepower to its wheels than the Volvo XC90.

Handling
The Toyota Sequoia has a smaller turning radius than the Volvo XC90, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.
