Volvo XC60 Reeling Away Ford Explorer Buyers

By  | 

The Ford Explorer is one of the most popular midsized SUVs here in the US but this does not make it as the best choice around.

Insurance Institute for Highway Safety confirmed on this when it handed the Explorer a low score upon accessing the vehicle’s safety performance. This is the complete opposite of the Volvo XC60, which scored highly on similar tests.

In today’s world, safety is as important as fuel economy and this has given the XC60 and advantage in the scene. Furthermore, the XC60 is only but a few thousands away from the MSRP of the Explorer and this explains why many are willing to spend a little bit more for a ‘safe’ SUV.

Until the Explorer improves on this front, the SUV will remain stuck with a limited market to tap on.
