2015 Volvo S60 vs. 2015 Audi A4 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Audi A4 than the Volvo S60, due to its greater head- and legroom. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Audi A4, the Volvo S60 may be a little roomier and more comfortable for the driver and front seat passengers.

Convenience
The Volvo S60 will require fewer stops at the gas station than the Audi A4, 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). The Volvo S60 is somewhat more expensive than the Audi A4. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Volvo S60 and the Audi A4 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Volvo S60 is much wider than the Audi A4, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. When looking at overall length, the Volvo S60 takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Audi A4.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Volvo S60 transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Audi A4.

Handling
The Volvo S60 has about the same turning radius as the Audi A4, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Volvo S60 has a much more powerful engine than the Audi A4. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Volvo S60 and the Audi A4. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries into the Volvo S60 as you will in the Audi A4.

Warranty
The Volvo S60 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Audi A4.
