2016 Volvo S80 vs. 2016 Toyota Avalon Hybrid Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Toyota Avalon Hybrid than the Volvo S80, due to its greater head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Volvo S80 and the Toyota Avalon Hybrid in the front seats.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Volvo S80 as you will with the Toyota Avalon Hybrid, as they get the same number of miles per tank of gas.

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 Toyota Avalon Hybrid. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Destination Charge for the Volvo S80 is much higher than that for the Toyota Avalon Hybrid.

Dimensions
The Volvo S80 is a little wider than the Toyota Avalon Hybrid, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. The Volvo S80 is slightly shorter than the Toyota Avalon Hybrid, which may make it easier to park.

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 Toyota Avalon Hybrid.

Handling
The Volvo S80 has a significantly smaller turning radius than the Toyota Avalon Hybrid, allowing much better maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Volvo S80 has a much more powerful engine than the Toyota Avalon Hybrid. 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 Toyota Avalon Hybrid. The Volvo S80 has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the Toyota Avalon Hybrid.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Volvo S80 than that of the Toyota Avalon Hybrid.
