2014 Volvo S80 vs. 2014 Audi A6 Review

Comparison Review


Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Audi A6 than the Volvo S80, due to its greater head- and legroom. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Audi A6, the Volvo S80 may be a little roomier and more comfortable for the driver and front seat passengers.

Convenience
The Audi A6 requires fewer visits to 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). Based on MSRP, the Volvo S80 is clearly a better financial choice over the Audi A6. 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 A6 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Volvo S80 is about the same width as the Audi A6. When looking at overall length, the Volvo S80 takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Audi A6.

Drivetrain
With similar torque, the Volvo S80 and the Audi A6 do an equal job of transmitting their engine's power to their wheels.

Handling
The Volvo S80 has a larger turning radius than the Audi A6, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Volvo S80 has less horsepower than the Audi A6, 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 Volvo S80 and the Audi A6. The Volvo S80 has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the Audi A6.

Warranty
The Volvo S80 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Audi A6.
