2016 Volvo S60 vs. 2017 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. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Volvo S60 and the Audi A4 in the front seats.

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
The Volvo S60 is a little wider than the Audi A4, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. 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 a smaller turning radius than the Audi A4, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Volvo S60 is somewhat more powerful than the Audi A4.

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. The Volvo S60 has less cargo capacity than the Audi A4, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

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