2014 Chevrolet SS vs. 2015 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 Chevrolet SS than the Volvo S60. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Chevrolet SS and the Volvo S60 in the front seats.

Convenience
With the Volvo S60 you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the Chevrolet SS, due to its tank size and 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 Chevrolet SS 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 Chevrolet SS will cost more in transportation costs than the Volvo S60.

Dimensions
The Chevrolet SS is a little wider than the Volvo S60, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. If you go with the Chevrolet SS, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Volvo S60.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Chevrolet SS does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Volvo S60.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Chevrolet SS has a much more powerful engine than the Volvo S60. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

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

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Chevrolet SS is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Volvo S60.
