2016 BMW 535 vs. 2016 Volvo S80 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The BMW 535 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 535 will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Volvo S80.

Convenience
The Volvo S80 requires fewer visits to the gas station than the BMW 535, making it more convenient to drive.

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 535 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 BMW 535 will cost more in transportation costs than the Volvo S80.

Dimensions
The BMW 535 is about the same width as the Volvo S80. When looking at overall length, the BMW 535 takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Volvo S80.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the BMW 535 transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Volvo S80.

Handling
The BMW 535 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 BMW 535 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 BMW 535 and the Volvo S80. The BMW 535 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 535 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Volvo S80.
