2016 Volvo S80 vs. 2016 BMW 328 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Volvo S80 offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the BMW 328 with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. The BMW 328 will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Volvo S80.

Convenience
With the Volvo S80 you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the BMW 328, due to its larger tank size and better fuel economy.

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 S80 is somewhat more expensive than the BMW 328. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. In this case, the Volvo S80 will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the BMW 328.

Dimensions
Since the Volvo S80 is much wider than the BMW 328, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. 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 BMW 328.

Drivetrain
With similar torque, the Volvo S80 and the BMW 328 do an equal job of transmitting their engine's power to their wheels.

Handling
The Volvo S80 has about the same turning radius as the BMW 328, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of horsepower, it's basically a tie between the Volvo S80 and the BMW 328.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Volvo S80 and the BMW 328. The Volvo S80 has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the BMW 328.

Warranty
The Volvo S80 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the BMW 328.
