2016 BMW 528 vs. 2016 Volvo S80 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The BMW 528 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 528 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 528 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 BMW 528 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 BMW 528 will cost more in transportation costs than the Volvo S80.

Dimensions
The BMW 528 is about the same width as the Volvo S80. When looking at overall length, the BMW 528 takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Volvo S80.

Drivetrain
With similar torque, the BMW 528 and the Volvo S80 do an equal job of transmitting their engine's power to their wheels.

Handling
The BMW 528 has a larger turning radius than the Volvo S80, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of horsepower, it's basically a tie between the BMW 528 and the Volvo S80.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the BMW 528 and the Volvo S80. The BMW 528 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 528 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Volvo S80.
