Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Lincoln Nautilus than in the Volvo XC60. The Lincoln Nautilus offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Volvo XC60, making it a little more comfortable for the driver and front passenger.

Convenience
The Volvo XC60 requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Lincoln Nautilus, 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). The Lincoln Nautilus is somewhat more expensive than the Volvo XC60. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. Both the Lincoln Nautilus and the Volvo XC60 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Lincoln Nautilus is a little wider than the Volvo XC60, 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 Lincoln Nautilus, which is slightly longer than the Volvo XC60.

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

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Volvo XC60 is clearly the choice over the Lincoln Nautilus for pulling heavy loads. The Lincoln Nautilus has a little more horsepower than the Volvo XC60.

Powertrain
With somewhat higher torque, the Lincoln Nautilus 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 Lincoln Nautilus and the Volvo XC60. The Lincoln Nautilus has a roomier cargo area for putting your bags or other items than the Volvo XC60.

Warranty
The Lincoln Nautilus comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Volvo XC60.
