2017 Infiniti Q50 vs. 2016 Volvo S80 Review

Comparison Review

Passengers in the back seat will feel a little more squished in the Infiniti Q50 than in the Volvo S80, due to the Infiniti Q50's smaller rear head- and legroom. The Infiniti Q50 will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Volvo S80.

The Volvo S80 requires fewer visits to the gas station than the Infiniti Q50, making it more convenient to drive.

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). When looking only at MSRP, the Infiniti Q50 will have less of an impact on your bank account 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 Infiniti Q50 and the Volvo S80 have similar Destination Charges.

Since the Infiniti Q50 is much slimmer than the Volvo S80, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. When looking at overall length, the Infiniti Q50 takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Volvo S80.

With similar torque, the Infiniti Q50 and the Volvo S80 do an equal job of transmitting their engine's power to their wheels.

The Infiniti Q50 has less horsepower than the Volvo S80, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Infiniti Q50 and the Volvo S80. The Infiniti Q50 has less cargo capacity than the Volvo S80, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

The basic warranty for the Infiniti Q50 offers a little more coverage than the basic warranty of the Volvo S80 in terms of months/miles.
