vs2016 Volvo S60
2017 Tesla Model S winning categories:
Power Ranked 2016 Volvo S60 better.
"While the Tesla Model S accelerates instantly and quicker, the Volvo S60 has a turbocharger with noise to enjoy. On the other hand, its top speed is at 143mph, probably faster on the 5-cylinder engine which beats the Tesla Model S 75Ds 140mph."
Handling Ranked 2016 Volvo S60 worse.
"With electric cars on the rise, the Tesla Model S sits on top of its battery and has a very low center of gravity. It handles better than any car with an engine in front."
Looks/Style Ranked 2016 Volvo S60 better.
"In terms of styling, the Volvo S60 is simpler. The cockpit has changing speedometer themes unlike the Tesla."
Front Seats Ranked 2016 Volvo S60 worse.
"In the Tesla, you are greeted with a large and new infotainment screen."
Back Seats Ranked 2016 Volvo S60 better.
"More legroom, the windows had sunshades, and the seat heat is accessible from the rear console unlike in the Tesla where it is only from the front screen."
Cargo Capacity Ranked 2016 Volvo S60 worse.
"The Tesla Model S has a larger trunk plus a front one."
Family Car Ranked 2016 Volvo S60 worse.
"More cargo room, also has the option of two rear-facing seats making it able to carry seven."
Value Ranked 2016 Volvo S60 better.
"As both cars are mid-sized sedans with the same amount of luxury depending on what you select, the Volvo S60 is better in value as a brand new one will normally cost thirty to forty grand cheaper than a brand new Model S."
Would Buy Ranked 2016 Volvo S60 worse.
"I would always choose an electric car over the petrol engine."
