Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Volvo XC60 than in the Toyota 4Runner, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Toyota 4Runner 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 Toyota 4Runner, 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 4Runner will have less of an impact on your bank account 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. The Destination Charge for the Toyota 4Runner is much higher than that for the Volvo XC60.

Dimensions
The Toyota 4Runner 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 Toyota 4Runner, which is slightly longer than the Volvo XC60.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque engine, the Toyota 4Runner doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Volvo XC60.

Handling
The Toyota 4Runner 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 Toyota 4Runner is clearly the choice over the Volvo XC60 for pulling heavy loads. The Toyota 4Runner has a little less horsepower than the Volvo XC60.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Toyota 4Runner and the Volvo XC60.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Toyota 4Runner is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Volvo XC60.
