2015 Audi A6 vs. 2015 Volvo S80 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Audi A6 than the Volvo S80. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Audi A6, drivers may find the Volvo S80 a little roomier and somewhat more comfortable.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Audi A6 as you will with the Volvo S80, as they get the same number of miles per tank of gas.

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 Audi A6 will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Volvo S80, which has a much lower MSRP. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Audi A6 and the Volvo S80 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Audi A6 is about the same width as the Volvo S80. When looking at overall length, the Audi A6 takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Volvo S80.

Drivetrain
With similar torque, the Audi A6 and the Volvo S80 do an equal job of transmitting their engine's power to their wheels.

Handling
The Audi A6 has a smaller turning radius than the Volvo S80, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Audi A6 is somewhat more powerful than the Volvo S80.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Audi A6 and the Volvo S80. The Audi A6 has less cargo capacity than the Volvo S80, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The Audi A6 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Volvo S80.
