Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will feel a little more squished in the Dodge Charger than in the Volvo S90, due to the Dodge Charger's smaller rear head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Dodge Charger and the Volvo S90 in the front seats.

Convenience
The Volvo S90 requires fewer visits to the gas station than the Dodge Charger, 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Dodge Charger will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Volvo S90. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Destination Charge for the Dodge Charger is much higher than that for the Volvo S90.

Dimensions
The Dodge Charger is about the same width as the Volvo S90. When looking at overall length, the Dodge Charger takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Volvo S90.

Handling
The Dodge Charger has a smaller turning radius than the Volvo S90, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Dodge Charger has a much more powerful engine than the Volvo S90. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

Powertrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Dodge Charger does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Volvo S90.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Dodge Charger and the Volvo S90. The Dodge Charger has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the Volvo S90.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Dodge Charger is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Volvo S90.
