2016 BMW 535d vs. 2016 Volvo S80 Review

Comparison Review

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.

You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the BMW 535d as you will with the Volvo S80, as they get the same number of miles per tank of gas.

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 will cost more in transportation costs than the Volvo S80.

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.

Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the BMW 535d does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Volvo S80.

The BMW 535d has a larger turning radius than the Volvo S80, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

When it comes to horsepower, the BMW 535d is somewhat more powerful than the Volvo S80.

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.

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