2014 Toyota Avalon 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 Toyota Avalon than the Volvo S60. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Toyota Avalon, drivers may find the Volvo S60 a little roomier and somewhat more comfortable.

Convenience
The Volvo S60 requires fewer visits to the gas station than the Toyota Avalon, making it more convenient to drive.

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 Toyota Avalon 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 Toyota Avalon carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Volvo S60.

Dimensions
The Toyota Avalon 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. If you go with the Toyota Avalon, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Volvo S60.

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

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

Performance
The Toyota Avalon has less horsepower than the Volvo S60, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Toyota Avalon and the Volvo S60. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the Toyota Avalon will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Volvo S60.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Toyota Avalon is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Volvo S60.
