2015 Cadillac XTS vs. 2015 Volvo S80 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 Cadillac XTS than the Volvo S80. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Volvo S80, the Cadillac XTS may be a little roomier and more comfortable for the driver and front seat passengers.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Cadillac XTS 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 Cadillac XTS 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 Cadillac XTS and the Volvo S80 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Cadillac XTS is a little narrower than the Volvo S80, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. If you go with the Cadillac XTS, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Volvo S80.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the Cadillac XTS doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Volvo S80.

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

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

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Cadillac XTS and the Volvo S80. The Cadillac XTS has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the Volvo S80.

Warranty
The Cadillac XTS comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Volvo S80.
