Comparison Review

Comfort
The Cadillac XT5 offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Volvo XC60, with comparable head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Cadillac XT5 and the Volvo XC60.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Cadillac XT5 as you will with the Volvo XC60, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a tank of gas.

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). Whether you pick the Cadillac XT5 or the Volvo XC60, it's going to cost you about the same. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Cadillac XT5 will cost more in terms of transportation costs than the Volvo XC60.

Handling
The Cadillac XT5 has a larger turning radius than the Volvo XC60, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Utility
