Comparison Review

Comfort
The BMW 330 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 Volvo S60, the BMW 330 may be a little roomier and more comfortable for the driver and front seat passengers.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the BMW 330 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). Whether you pick the BMW 330 or the Volvo S60, it's going to cost you about the same. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The BMW 330 and the Volvo S60 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The BMW 330 is a little narrower than the Volvo S60, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. When looking at overall length, the BMW 330 takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Volvo S60.

Drivetrain
With similar torque, the BMW 330 and the Volvo S60 do an equal job of transmitting their engine's power to their wheels.

Handling
The BMW 330 has about the same turning radius as the Volvo S60, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the BMW 330 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 BMW 330 and the Volvo S60. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the BMW 330 will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Volvo S60.

Warranty
The BMW 330 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Volvo S60.
