2018 BMW 530 vs. 2018 Volvo S60 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 BMW 530 than the Volvo S60. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the BMW 530 and the Volvo S60 in the front seats.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the BMW 530 as you will with the Volvo S60, 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 530 is somewhat more expensive than the Volvo S60. 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 530 and the Volvo S60 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The BMW 530 is about the same width as the Volvo S60. If you go with the BMW 530, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Volvo S60.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the BMW 530 doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Volvo S60.

Handling
The BMW 530 has about the same turning radius as the Volvo S60, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The BMW 530 has less horsepower than the Volvo S60, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the BMW 530 and the Volvo S60. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the BMW 530 will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Volvo S60.

Warranty
The BMW 530 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Volvo S60.
