Comparison Review

Comfort
The Mercedes-Benz E-Class offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Volvo V90 with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, drivers may find the Volvo V90 a little roomier and somewhat more comfortable.

Convenience
The Mercedes-Benz E-Class will require fewer stops at the gas station than the Volvo V90, 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 Mercedes-Benz E-Class will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Volvo V90, 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 Mercedes-Benz E-Class will cost more in transportation costs than the Volvo V90.

Dimensions
The Mercedes-Benz E-Class is about the same width as the Volvo V90. When looking at overall length, the Mercedes-Benz E-Class takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Volvo V90.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Mercedes-Benz E-Class does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Volvo V90.

Handling
The Mercedes-Benz E-Class has about the same turning radius as the Volvo V90, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Mercedes-Benz E-Class has a much more powerful engine than the Volvo V90. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

Utility
The Mercedes-Benz E-Class offers greater seating capacity than the Volvo V90, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. The Mercedes-Benz E-Class has less cargo capacity than the Volvo V90, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The Mercedes-Benz E-Class comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Volvo V90.
