2014 Chevrolet SS vs. 2014 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 Chevrolet SS than the Volvo S80. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Volvo S80, the Chevrolet SS may be a little roomier and more comfortable for the driver and front seat passengers.

Convenience
The Volvo S80 requires fewer visits to the gas station than the Chevrolet SS, 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). Whether you pick the Chevrolet SS or the Volvo S80, it's going to cost you about the same. 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 S80.

Dimensions
The Chevrolet SS is a little wider than the Volvo S80, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Chevrolet SS, which is slightly longer than the Volvo S80.

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

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Chevrolet SS has a much more powerful engine than the Volvo S80. 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 S80. The Chevrolet SS has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the Volvo S80.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Chevrolet SS is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Volvo S80.
