Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Jeep Grand Cherokee than in the Volvo XC60. The Jeep Grand Cherokee will be popular with taller drivers and passengers in the front seat, due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Volvo XC60.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Jeep Grand Cherokee 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Jeep Grand Cherokee will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Volvo XC60.

Dimensions
Since the Jeep Grand Cherokee is much wider than the Volvo XC60, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Jeep Grand Cherokee, which is slightly longer than the Volvo XC60.

Handling
The Jeep Grand Cherokee has the same turning radius as the Volvo XC60, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When considering towing capacity, the Jeep Grand Cherokee is clearly the choice over the Volvo XC60 for pulling heavy loads. The Jeep Grand Cherokee has a little more horsepower than the Volvo XC60.

Powertrain
With similar torque, the Jeep Grand Cherokee and the Volvo XC60 are about even in transmitting their respective horsepower to the wheels.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Jeep Grand Cherokee and the Volvo XC60. The Jeep Grand Cherokee has a roomier cargo area for putting your bags or other items than the Volvo XC60.
