2015 Kia Cadenza 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 Kia Cadenza than the Volvo S60. The Kia Cadenza will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Volvo S60.

Convenience
With the Volvo S60 you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the Kia Cadenza, 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Kia Cadenza will have less of an impact on your bank account 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 Kia Cadenza carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Volvo S60.

Dimensions
The Kia Cadenza is about the same width as the Volvo S60. If you go with the Kia Cadenza, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Volvo S60.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the Kia Cadenza doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Volvo S60.

Handling
The Kia Cadenza has about the same turning radius as the Volvo S60, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Kia Cadenza has less horsepower than the Volvo S60, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

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

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Kia Cadenza than that of the Volvo S60.
