2015 Volvo S60 vs. 2015 Volvo S80 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Volvo S80 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 Volvo S80 in the front seats.

Convenience
The Volvo S60 will require fewer stops at the gas station than the Volvo S80, 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 Volvo S60 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 Volvo S60 and the Volvo S80 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Volvo S60 is about the same width as the Volvo S80. The Volvo S60 is slightly shorter than the Volvo S80, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the Volvo S60 doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Volvo S80.

Handling
The Volvo S60 has a smaller turning radius than the Volvo S80, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of horsepower, it's basically a tie between the Volvo S60 and the Volvo S80.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Volvo S60 and the Volvo S80. The Volvo S60 has significantly less cargo room than the Volvo S80, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.

Warranty
The Volvo S60 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Volvo S80.
