Comparison Review

Comfort
The Audi A4 offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Volvo S60 with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Audi A4, drivers may find the Volvo S60 a little roomier and somewhat more comfortable.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Audi A4 as you will with the Volvo S60, 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Audi A4 will have less of an impact on your bank account 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 Audi A4 will cost more in transportation costs than the Volvo S60.

Dimensions
The Audi A4 is about the same width as the Volvo S60. When looking at overall length, the Audi A4 takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Volvo S60.

Drivetrain
The Audi A4 has much less torque than the Volvo S60, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The Audi A4 has a larger turning radius than the Volvo S60, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Audi A4 is significantly less powerful than the Volvo S60. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Audi A4 and the Volvo S60. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries into the Audi A4 as you will in the Volvo S60.

Warranty
The Audi A4 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Volvo S60.
