2014 BMW 535d vs. 2015 Volvo S80 Review

Comparison Review

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

Convenience
With the BMW 535d you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Volvo S80, due to its larger tank size and better 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 BMW 535d 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 535d and the Volvo S80 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The BMW 535d is about the same width as the Volvo S80. When looking at overall length, the BMW 535d 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 535d transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Volvo S80.

Handling
The BMW 535d has a smaller turning radius than the Volvo S80, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The BMW 535d has less horsepower than the Volvo S80, 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 535d and the Volvo S80. The BMW 535d 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 535d comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Volvo S80.
