2014 BMW 335 vs. 2015 Volvo S80 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The BMW 335 offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Volvo S80 with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. The BMW 335 will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Volvo S80.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the BMW 335 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). Whether you pick the BMW 335 or the Volvo S80, it's going to cost you about the same. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The BMW 335 and the Volvo S80 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the BMW 335 is much slimmer than the Volvo S80, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. The BMW 335 is slightly shorter than the Volvo S80, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the BMW 335 doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Volvo S80.

Handling
The BMW 335 has a smaller turning radius than the Volvo S80, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of horsepower, it's basically a tie between the BMW 335 and the Volvo S80.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the BMW 335 and the Volvo S80. The BMW 335 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 BMW 335 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Volvo S80.
