2015 Subaru WRX STI vs. 2015 Volvo S60 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Subaru WRX STI offers a bit more room for passengers in the back seat than the Volvo S60. The Subaru WRX STI 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 Subaru WRX STI, 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 Subaru WRX STI 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 Subaru WRX STI carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Volvo S60.

Dimensions
Since the Subaru WRX STI is much slimmer than the Volvo S60, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. When looking at overall length, the Subaru WRX STI takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Volvo S60.

Drivetrain
With similar torque, the Subaru WRX STI and the Volvo S60 do an equal job of transmitting their engine's power to their wheels.

Handling
The Subaru WRX STI has a smaller turning radius than the Volvo S60, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of horsepower, it's basically a tie between the Subaru WRX STI and the Volvo S60.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Subaru WRX STI and the Volvo S60. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries into the Subaru WRX STI as you will in the Volvo S60.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Subaru WRX STI is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Volvo S60.
