2014 Volvo S80 vs. 2014 Ford Fusion Energi Review

Comparison Review


Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Ford Fusion Energi than the Volvo S80, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Ford Fusion Energi will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Volvo S80.

Convenience
With the Ford Fusion Energi you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the Volvo S80, due to its tank size and 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 will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Ford Fusion Energi, which has a much lower MSRP. 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 will cost more in transportation costs than the Ford Fusion Energi.

Dimensions
The Volvo S80 is a little wider than the Ford Fusion Energi, 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 S80 takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Ford Fusion Energi.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Volvo S80 does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Ford Fusion Energi.

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

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Volvo S80 has a much more powerful engine than the Ford Fusion Energi. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Volvo S80 and the Ford Fusion Energi. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the Volvo S80 will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Ford Fusion Energi.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Volvo S80 than that of the Ford Fusion Energi.
