Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Audi A8 than the Volvo S90. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Audi A8 and the Volvo S90 in the front seats.

Convenience
The Audi A8 will require fewer stops at the gas station than the Volvo S90, making it more convenient to drive.

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 Audi A8 will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Volvo S90, 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 Audi A8 and the Volvo S90 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Audi A8 is much wider than the Volvo S90, 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 Audi A8, which is slightly longer than the Volvo S90.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Audi A8 transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Volvo S90.

Handling
The Audi A8 has a larger turning radius than the Volvo S90, 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 Audi A8 and the Volvo S90.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Audi A8 and the Volvo S90. The Audi A8 has significantly less cargo room than the Volvo S90, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.

Warranty
The Audi A8 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Volvo S90.
