Comparison Review

Comfort
The Volvo S90 offers a bit more room for passengers in the back seat than the Lexus ES 350. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Volvo S90 and the Lexus ES 350 in the front seats.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Volvo S90 as you will with the Lexus ES 350, 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 Volvo S90 is somewhat more expensive than the Lexus ES 350. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Volvo S90 and the Lexus ES 350 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Volvo S90 is a little wider than the Lexus ES 350, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Volvo S90, which is slightly longer than the Lexus ES 350.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Volvo S90 transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Lexus ES 350.

Handling
The Volvo S90 has about the same turning radius as the Lexus ES 350, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Volvo S90 is somewhat more powerful than the Lexus ES 350.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Volvo S90 and the Lexus ES 350. The Volvo S90 has less cargo capacity than the Lexus ES 350, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The Volvo S90 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Lexus ES 350.
