The Volvo XC60 and the Honda CR-V are two of the bestselling utility vehicles on the market. While they offer similar features, there are a few key differences that can help you decide when choosing a vehicle.

Design & Style

  • Exterior Design

The Volvo XC60 is a large SUV that has been on the market since 2008 and is still going strong. Both of these cars have a lot to offer in terms of exterior design, and you'll be able to find plenty of customizations for each.

The 2022 Volvo XC60 has a sleek shape, including a smooth hood that slopes down towards the front wheels and then curves upward towards the windshield. This car also has tall headlight clusters with LED lighting technology. As for its rear end, the XC60 boasts stylish taillights and an integrated spoiler that helps reduce drag while improving stability at high speeds.

The Honda CR-V features a familiar body style as well-it's similar to other SUV models like Jeep Grand Cherokee or Ford Explorer-but it still manages to stand out on its thanks to its bolder design elements such as chrome trim pieces along its grille and bumpers as well as wraparound headlights that illuminate your path at night (and daytime).

  • Interior Design

The 2022 Volvo XC60 offers a spacious interior with the family in mind. With a large dashboard and center console, this crossover SUV provides plenty of room for everyone in your family to spread out and relax while on the road. The seats are also comfortable enough to keep you sitting straight as you take on new daily adventures.

The 2022 Honda CR-V also offers plenty of room inside, although not quite as much as the Volvo XC60. However, it still has enough space for up to five passengers and more cargo when necessary (be sure not to get too tight!). This vehicle's interior is also aesthetically pleasing thanks to its modern design elements like leather seats and wood accents throughout the cabin area.

Technology & Safety

The 2022 Volvo XC60 has a large touchscreen and minimal buttons. The touchscreen is the primary interface for most of the vehicle's features, from navigation to climate control to seat heating. There's also an additional button panel on the left side of the steering wheel that allows you quick access to several vital functions, such as Bluetooth and phone pairing.

The 2022 Honda CR-V offers a wide display screen that clearly shows all pertinent information such as speed, fuel economy, radio stations, and more. A smaller knob just below this is an intuitive way to control audio volume without disrupting your view of the road ahead or taking your hands off the steering wheel.


The 2022 Volvo XC60 and 2022 Honda CR-V both offer a turbocharged 4-cylinder engine as standard. The Volvo's 2.0L engine produces 250 horsepower at 5,000 rpm and 258 lb-ft of torque at 1,600 rpm, while the Honda's 2.4L offers up 280 horsepower at 6,000 rpm and 262 lb-ft of twist at 1,800 rpm. Both engines are paired with 7-speed automatic transmissions in their respective vehicles.

The Bottom Line

The winner of this face-off is the 2022 Volvo XC60. It's not just because its styling and infotainment make it look like the future, though that's certainly a factor. It also has more available driver assistance systems than the Honda CR-V and provides higher safety ratings.
