2015 Lexus IS 350 vs. 2015 Volvo S80 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Volvo S80 than the Lexus IS 350, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Lexus IS 350 will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Volvo S80.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Lexus IS 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Lexus IS 350 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 Lexus IS 350 and the Volvo S80 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Lexus IS 350 is much slimmer than the Volvo S80, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. The Lexus IS 350 is slightly shorter than the Volvo S80, which may make it easier to park.

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

Handling
The Lexus IS 350 has a significantly smaller turning radius than the Volvo S80, allowing much better maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of horsepower, it's basically a tie between the Lexus IS 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 IS 350 and the Volvo S80. The Lexus IS 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 IS 350 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Volvo S80.
