2014 Lexus GS 350 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 Lexus GS 350 than the Volvo S60. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Lexus GS 350 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 Lexus GS 350, 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 Lexus GS 350 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 Lexus GS 350 and the Volvo S60 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Lexus GS 350 is a little narrower than the Volvo S60, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Lexus GS 350, which is slightly longer than the Volvo S60.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the Lexus GS 350 doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Volvo S60.

Handling
The Lexus GS 350 has about the same turning radius as the Volvo S60, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of horsepower, it's basically a tie between the Lexus GS 350 and the Volvo S60.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Lexus GS 350 and the Volvo S60. The Lexus GS 350 has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the Volvo S60.

Warranty
The Lexus GS 350 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Volvo S60.
