2016 Audi S4 vs. 2016 Volvo S80 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Audi S4 offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Volvo S80 with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Audi S4 and the Volvo S80 in the front seats.

Convenience
With the Volvo S80 you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the Audi S4, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

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 S4 is somewhat more expensive than the Volvo S80. 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 S4 and the Volvo S80 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Audi S4 is a little narrower than the Volvo S80, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. The Audi S4 is slightly shorter than the Volvo S80, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Audi S4 transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Volvo S80.

Handling
The Audi S4 has a larger turning radius than the Volvo S80, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Audi S4 has a much more powerful engine than the Volvo S80. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Audi S4 and the Volvo S80. The Audi S4 has significantly less cargo room than the Volvo S80, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.

Warranty
The Audi S4 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Volvo S80.
