Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited 4xe than in the Volvo XC60. The Jeep Wrangler Unlimited 4xe will be popular with taller drivers and passengers in the front seat, due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Volvo XC60.

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 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited 4xe 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 Destination Charge for the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited 4xe is much higher than that for the Volvo XC60.

Dimensions
The Jeep Wrangler Unlimited 4xe is a little narrower than the Volvo XC60, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited 4xe, which is slightly longer than the Volvo XC60.

Handling
The Jeep Wrangler Unlimited 4xe has a larger turning radius than the Volvo XC60, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
If you've got something you need to pull, the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited 4xe will do just as well as the Volvo XC60, since they have about the same towing capacity. The Jeep Wrangler Unlimited 4xe has a little more horsepower than the Volvo XC60.

Powertrain
With somewhat higher torque, the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited 4xe transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Volvo XC60.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited 4xe and the Volvo XC60. The Jeep Wrangler Unlimited 4xe has a roomier cargo area for putting your bags or other items than the Volvo XC60.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited 4xe is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Volvo XC60.
