Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Volvo XC60 than in the Hyundai Kona EV. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Volvo XC60 and the Hyundai Kona EV.

Convenience
Due to the larger tank size and better fuel economy of the Volvo XC60, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Hyundai Kona EV.

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 Volvo XC60 is somewhat more expensive than the Hyundai Kona EV. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Volvo XC60 carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Hyundai Kona EV.

Dimensions
Since the Volvo XC60 is much wider than the Hyundai Kona EV, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the Volvo XC60, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Hyundai Kona EV.

Drivetrain
With similar torque, the Volvo XC60 and the Hyundai Kona EV are about even in transmitting their respective horsepower to the wheels.

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

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Volvo XC60 greatly out-muscles the Hyundai Kona EV.

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

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Volvo XC60 is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Hyundai Kona EV.
