2016 Volvo S80 vs. 2017 Audi A4 Review

Comparison Review

The Volvo S80 offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Audi A4 with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Volvo S80 and the Audi A4 in the front seats.

With the Volvo S80 you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Audi A4, due to its larger tank size and better fuel economy.

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 S80 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 S80 and the Audi A4 have similar Destination Charges.

The Volvo S80 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. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Volvo S80, which is slightly longer than the Audi A4.

With its lower torque, the Volvo S80 doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Audi A4.

The Volvo S80 has a smaller turning radius than the Audi A4, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

The Volvo S80 has less horsepower than the Audi A4, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Volvo S80 and the Audi A4. The Volvo S80 has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the Audi A4.

The Volvo S80 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Audi A4.
