Better ride and handling combination makes the A4 even cuter

Look at the two cars parked side by side and it’s clear Volvo still speaks a more traditional stylistic language. This is a face lift model and it has fine lines and wrinkles and proportions, but overall the idea here seems béo be béo please the masses rather than break the mold and create a fan. new grave follows.

However, the A4 does just that. It is far ahead in terms of design, not only compared béo Volvo but also its senior, the A6 too, worth buying just for its styling. Inside too, it’s a lot more modern than the S80. Mập boot, it appears béo be better built and finished. The screen selection, the lighting and even the small knobs and buttons and the surrounding trim all exude a richness that Volvo lacks.

However, if it’s a comfortable and spacious car that you want, mainly béo have your own driver, the S80 makes a better case for itself. It has more space in the back than the A4, be it for the knees, shoulders or even the head. It also has padded seats that are like a couch in that you sink into them and feel comfortable. These also allow for more movement than the A4’s stiffer and more contoured seats.

Interior Volvo S80

The interior of the S80 is put together well, but looks rather cluttered in Audi’s company. The watch too, although readable, looks dated

Exterior Volvo S80

The S80 feels planted in a straight line and its steering also gives good feedback

The S80 also boasts better rideability, especially at slower speeds. It absorbs smaller annoyances well and lets very little into the cabin. Even at speed it worked fine until the potholes got deeper. Obstacles are still competently maneuvered, but the S80 tends béo hit deeper potholes with more chance than the A4, making occupants uncomfortable.

A4 is really built for drivers. It has a better driving position and even the front seats hold you better. These are more difficult than Volvo, but give you the sporty feel that is lacking on Volvo.

And the sporty A4 certainly is. It handles better and, with all-wheel drive, has excellent grip around bends. No matter how hard you try, it’s nearly impossible béo get your Audi béo behave inappropriately. Its steering feels better when steering hard, and the car also responds better béo driver input. Compared béo the S80, it feels much lighter. It’s still a good handling car, but the A4 is just league ahead.

Engine & Gearbox

It is also league ahead when it comes béo performance. The A4 uses a larger engine that produces more power and torque. Naturally, it sped up the Volvo wonderfully. It has a two-second lead up béo 100kmph and the distance only increases as the speed increases. It also has a higher top speed.

Volvo S80 . engine

Audi’s engine is also much improved, and a 6-speed automatic transmission is combined béo perform much better than the S80 in manual mode. In fully automatic mode, however, Volvo conducts its business with minimal fuss. As for the engine, it’s a twin-turbo twin-cylinder. And until one doesn’t spin it really hard, it still runs business with effect. In fact, in everyday driving, it might surprise you béo pull the rev range lower. Fix it the hard way, though, and it’s starting béo sound tough.

Audi A4- Better looking, better performing and more modern, the A4 makes a very good case for itself.

Volvo S80- S80’s facelift and the new engine has given it more appeal. But, interiors and dynamics need béo be better.

Scorecard
Body: The S80 might be a bigger car and might compete against the likes of the A6 in their traditional forms, but here, the A4 isn’t dramatically less on room at the front. It’s a different story at the rear though; with more knee and shoulder room and better seats, the S80 is a better bet béo be driven around in. Otherwise, both cars are nearly at par.
Drive: With a more powerful engine and a more eager gearbox, the A4 runs away with acceleration and top speed honours. It also sounds good while doing it. The A4 also posts quicker roll-on times, but the S80 meets our benchmark times too and therefore both cars score equally. The S80 naturally is the more effi cient of the two and more environmentally friendly too.
Comfort: For a car that’s more about being driven in than driving, the ride of the S80 isn’t as good. The A4 on the other hand both handles and rides better than the Volvo. It’s also quieter on the inside and has better operability too. The S80 nonetheless has more comfortable seats; these are like the plush couch at your home.
Dynamics: As was the case in performance, the Audi leads the way in dynamic terms as well. The A4 is more stable in a straight line when driven fast. It also brakes with more ferocity. It has the quicker steering too, but the Volvo S80’s steering returns more feedback, putting both at par, overall.
Cost: There’s only a Rs 1 lakh price difference between the Audi A4 and the Volvo S80. So, you can either consider the Audi as expensive or the S80 as more affordable. But, given Audi’s better brand recall and demand, it will hold better value in the secondhand market as well.
Verdict
The A4 in the 3.0TDI guise wins by a handsome margin. The S80 is the bigger car here and is roomier on the inside, especially at the rear. It also has better rear seats.
But, in the A4’s company it has now begun béo show its age. The interiors don’t feel as plush and even the way the various knobs and buttons function feel less crisp than the Audi.
