2015 Volvo S80 vs. 2015 Volvo S60 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Volvo S80 than the Volvo S60. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Volvo S80, drivers may find the Volvo S60 a little roomier and somewhat more comfortable.

Convenience
With the Volvo S60 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 is somewhat more expensive than the Volvo S60. 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 Volvo S60 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Volvo S80 is about the same width as the Volvo S60. 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 Volvo S60.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Volvo S80 transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Volvo S60.

Handling
The Volvo S80 has a larger turning radius than the Volvo S60, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of horsepower, it's basically a tie between the Volvo S80 and the Volvo S60.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Volvo S80 and the Volvo S60. The Volvo S80 has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the Volvo S60.

Warranty
The Volvo S80 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Volvo S60.
