2020 Audi A5 vs 2020 Volvo S90 Comparison in Columbus, OH

A full-size european sedan is a potent symbol of status and sophistication -- but, we've got to confess something: the 2020 Audi A5 isn't really a sedan at all. It's available as a two-door coupe or convertible, as well as a unique four-door sportback! This lends the 2020 Audi A5 superior style to the stale sedans offered by premium brands like Volvo. To prove it, we'll compare the 2020 Audi A5 against the 2020 Volvo S90 below. Spend less with Audi and get more! We'll show you how at Audi Columbus.

2020 Audi A5 vs. 2020 Volvo S90: Design & Storage

While the 2020 Volvo S90 is designed like a traditional three-box sedan, the 2020 Audi A5 Sportback features a coupe-like roofline and a sloping rear hatchback. Instead of just the trunk lid, the whole rear glass lifts away, giving you access to a generous 21.8 cubic feet of cargo space. That's a whole lot more space than you'll find in a sedan. And since you can fold down the rear seats individually, including the middle seat, it's easier to configure the cabin for more cargo storage and rear-seat passengers alike.

Best of all, the 2020 Audi A5 bids other drivers a fond farewell with its animating rear turn indicators. They light up progressively in the direction of your turn for a flash of style the 2020 Volvo S90 lacks altogether.

2020 Audi A5 vs. 2020 Volvo S90: Features & Technology

At the entry level, impressive standard features in the 2020 Audi A5 will surround you in luxury -- more luxury than the 2020 Volvo S90, in fact. On the Audi A5, standard wood inlays lend a premium feel while three-zone automatic climate control has separate climate settings for the rear seats. The new Volvo S90 comes standard with dual-zone climate controls only and the base model lacks wood trim. You'll have to pay more to get the same features as the entry-level 2020 Audi A5.

And while both cars come with Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ for your smartphone, the 2020 Audi A5 offers optional upgrades you can't find on the 2020 Volvo S90. For instance, the available Audi phone box serves as both a wireless charger and signal booster, to improve reception when driving in remote areas. Such a feature isn't available on the Volvo S90 at all.

2020 Audi A5 vs. 2020 Volvo S90: Performance

At the entry level, the 2020 Audi A5 isn't quite as powerful as the 2020 Volvo S90, but it gets much better fuel economy. And since both models come with all-wheel drive, you'll have more confidence in wet weather and better traction in any conditions. You can also add a sports suspension to the 2020 Audi A5 for more responsive handling and greater feedback and control. Both models also come with selectable drive modes so you can get a more economical cruise or snappier throttle response on demand.

2020 Audi A5 vs. 2020 Volvo S90: Safety

A close look at the driver assist features of the 2020 Audi A5 reveals that they're even more advanced than those on the 2020 Volvo S90. For instance, available automatic high beams on the Volvo S90 will automatically switch off as oncoming traffic approaches and switch them back on when traffic has passed. This feature is totally standard on the 2020 Audi A5! Or, upgrade to the Audi LED Matrix-design headlights with Audi Laser Light. At speeds of 40MPH and above, Audi Laser Light provides the most advanced visibility on the road, directing the brightest light on the road ahead without blinding traffic in oncoming lanes. These are the most advanced headlights in the industry, and the 2020 Volvo S90 doesn't offer anything quite like them.
