Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the BMW 540 than the Volvo S60. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the BMW 540 and the Volvo S60 in the front seats.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the BMW 540 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). The BMW 540 will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Volvo S60, which has a much lower MSRP.

Dimensions
The BMW 540 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 BMW 540, which is slightly longer than the Volvo S60.

Handling
The BMW 540 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 BMW 540 has a much more powerful engine than the Volvo S60. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

Powertrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the BMW 540 transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Volvo S60.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the BMW 540 and the Volvo S60.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the BMW 540 than that of the Volvo S60.
