The Volvo XC60 and the Ford Edge are two of the most popular SUVs on the road. They both offer great value for money and sporty styling, but there are big differences between them regarding performance, technology, and safety features. Let's take a look at how they stack up against each other:

Design & Style

  • Exterior Design

The Volvo XC60 has an athletic body that's just a little curvier than the Ford Edge, which has a square shape. Both vehicles have sleek lines on the front and sides, with big wheels and even bigger tires on their back end. The Volvo XC60 comes in two different trim levels: SE and Platinum. The SE comes with 19-inch alloy wheels and cloth seats; a panoramic roof is optional for this model. For those who like to make an impression when they pull up to the valet stand, you can opt for the 21-inch wheels on your SE model or upgrade to 22 inches if you want something more eye-catching (and noticeable).

The Ford Edge has two trim levels: SEL Titanium and Limited Platinum. For both models, you get 20-inch alloy wheels standard when you purchase your car new, but you can upgrade them to 22 inches if desired-if it's worth paying extra for style points. That depends entirely on how important those are to you!

  • Interior Design

The 2022 Volvo XC60 has a sleek, elegant interior that is nothing short of impressive. With an 8-inch display and a new touchscreen system, the dash feels like it has been upgraded from last year's model. It's clear that this SUV was designed with comfort in mind-there are plenty of storage compartments throughout the cabin, including a large compartment in the center console to store all your belongings. The seats are also very comfortable; they have plenty of cushioning and support for long drives without being too bulky or stiff. The driver-focused controls allow you to easily adjust everything from climate control to infotainment system settings without ever having to take your eyes off the road.

The 2022 Ford Edge offers an equally impressive interior design experience with its large touchscreen display screen on both standard and premium models. It makes navigating through menus easy (although you can always opt for voice commands if you prefer). The Premium trim level also comes equipped with upgraded leather seats compared to lower trims which mean there's more cushioning around parts like your backrests so that you're not left feeling sore after a long drive down Route 66!

Technology & Safety

The 2022 Volvo XC60 and the 2022 Ford Edge have much to offer regarding technology and safety. These vehicles are front runners in their respective segments, making them great options for those who want a safe SUV with abundant tech features. The Volvo XC60 is available with optional blind spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, automatic emergency braking, and adaptive cruise control-all of which come standard on the Edge (except for automatic emergency braking).

The Edge has an available panoramic sunroof that expands your view of the outdoors by over 50%. It also comes with Apple CarPlay compatibility to access your favorite apps while on the go.

Performance

The XC60 comes with a turbocharged 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine that produces 250 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque, mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission. The Edge also has a turbocharged 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine that generates 245 horsepower and 275 pound-feet of torque when paired with its 6-speed SelectShift automatic transmission. For those who want more get up and go from their FWD model, Ford offers an optional turbocharged 1.5L EcoBoost engine that gives you 238 hp and 270 lb.-ft., along with the same 6-speed SelectShift automatic as above but mated to FWD instead of AWD (you can only get this option on SE models).

The Bottom Line

Ultimately, the 2022 Volvo XC60 comes out as a clear winner. It has all the luxury amenities you would expect from a high-end SUV. It also has an incredible roster of safety features to keep you safe on the road, even in difficult weather conditions.
