Subaru vs. Volvo

2024 Subaru Outback driving up rocky trail


Between a Subaru and a Volvo, which vehicle is better for your Nyack driving needs? Both brands offer exceptional vehicles with unique technology and performance features. However, when you compare a Subaru against a Volvo – or a Subaru against any brand – you’ll find that a Subaru vehicle is unmatched by a vehicle from any other brand. Take a look at how Subaru vehicles stand out from Volvo vehicles with Bill Kolb Jr. Subaru. Then, visit our dealership to explore our new Subaru inventory and see for yourself why other vehicles simply can’t be compared to a Subaru!

Subaru vs. Volvo: AWD

When it comes to performance, the specifications and numbers will vary depending on which Subaru or Volvo model you choose. However, where Subaru truly stands out is with its all-wheel drive (AWD) system. Many Volvo models also come equipped with all-wheel drive, but the Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive stands out, particularly when it comes to responsiveness and adaptability to road conditions.

Here are some of the highlights of each brand’s all-wheel drive system: 

Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive

  • Standard on all models except BRZ
  • Optimized traction in rain, snow, on bad roads, or even when you’re off the road around Nanuet
  • Provides an engaged, responsive drive

Volvo All-Wheel Drive

  • Standard on most Volvo models except for a few
  • Performance varies between AWD and eAWD models
  • Improves overall traction and handling

If all-wheel drive is something you need in a vehicle, you’ll have more options that are standardly equipped with all-wheel drive compared to Volvo options. 

Subaru vs. Volvo: Safety

It’s no secret that Subaru is the top-rated automotive brand when it comes to vehicle safety. Volvo has also won some reputable safety awards, but when it comes to the number of trophies collected, Subaru outshines Volvo in the category of safety.
