Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Lexus ES 350 than the Volvo S60. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Lexus ES 350 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 Lexus ES 350 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 Lexus ES 350 is somewhat more expensive 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 Lexus ES 350 and the Volvo S60 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Lexus ES 350 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 Lexus ES 350, which is slightly longer than the Volvo S60.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the Lexus ES 350 doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Volvo S60.

Handling
The Lexus ES 350 has a larger turning radius than the Volvo S60, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Lexus ES 350 has less horsepower than the Volvo S60, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Lexus ES 350 and the Volvo S60. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the Lexus ES 350 will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Volvo S60.

Warranty
The Lexus ES 350 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Volvo S60.
