2014 Lexus GS 350 vs. 2015 Volvo S80 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Lexus GS 350 offers a bit more room for passengers in the back seat than the Volvo S80. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Lexus GS 350 and the Volvo S80 in the front seats.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Lexus GS 350 as you will with the Volvo S80, as they get the same number of miles per tank of gas.

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 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 Lexus GS 350 and the Volvo S80 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Lexus GS 350 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 Lexus GS 350 takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Volvo S80.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the Lexus GS 350 doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Volvo S80.

Handling
The Lexus GS 350 has a smaller turning radius than the Volvo S80, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of horsepower, it's basically a tie between the Lexus GS 350 and the Volvo S80.

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 S80. The Lexus GS 350 has less cargo capacity than the Volvo S80, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The Lexus GS 350 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Volvo S80.
