2014 Lincoln MKS vs. 2015 Volvo S80 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 Lincoln MKS than the Volvo S80. The Lincoln MKS 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 Lincoln MKS 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 Lincoln MKS 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 Lincoln MKS and the Volvo S80 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Lincoln MKS is much wider than the Volvo S80, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the Lincoln MKS, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Volvo S80.

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

Handling
The Lincoln MKS has about the same turning radius as the Volvo S80, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of horsepower, it's basically a tie between the Lincoln MKS and the Volvo S80.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Lincoln MKS and the Volvo S80. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the Lincoln MKS will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Volvo S80.

Warranty
The Lincoln MKS comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Volvo S80.
