Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Toyota Venza than in the Volvo XC40. The Toyota Venza offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Volvo XC40, making it a little more comfortable for the driver and front passenger.

Convenience
The Toyota Venza requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Volvo XC40, making it more convenient to drive.

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). When looking only at MSRP, the Toyota Venza 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. The Toyota Venza will cost more in terms of transportation costs than the Volvo XC40.

Dimensions
The Toyota Venza is about the same width as the Volvo XC40. If you go with the Toyota Venza, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Volvo XC40.

Performance
The Toyota Venza has a little less horsepower than the Volvo XC40.

Powertrain
The Toyota Venza has much lower torque than the Volvo XC40, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Toyota Venza and the Volvo XC40. The Toyota Venza has a roomier cargo area for putting your bags or other items than the Volvo XC40.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Toyota Venza is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Volvo XC40.
