Volvo vs. Audi

When searching for the right luxury automotive brand for your next new vehicle it is important to compare key aspects of each manufacturer, which is why the experts at McLaughlin Volvo have compared Volvo and Audi in the page below. Read on to learn how these luxury car manufacturers compare, or speak directly to a specialist by calling (866) 982-1024.


The luxury automotive brand you choose for your next vehicle should manufacture reliable and safe models. Volvo offers an impressive certified pre-owned vehicle program, demonstrating the longevity of its vehicles. Audi also offers a certified pre-owned vehicle program, but does not offer the same benefits as Volvo. Volvo CPO benefits include:

  • Complimentary roadside assistance
  • Emergency towing and lockout service
  • Trip interruption benefits
  • Emergency towing


Both Volvo and Audi have received numerous awards recognizing the performance, craftsmanship, and modern features included with their vehicles. However, Volvo has received a far greater number of recognitions across more expert committees compared to Audi. Key Volvo awards include:

  • XC40 named "2019 Best Buy: Subcompact Luxury SUV" by Kelley Blue Book
  • XC40 named "Best New Model" by Kelley Blue Book
  • XC90 named "Best SUV for Tailgating" by Country Living
  • XC60 named "2018 SUV/Crossover of the Year" by Chicago News
  • XC60 named "2018 North American Utility of the Year" by North American Car, Utility, and Truck of the Year Awards

Luxury Features

It is no secret that Volvo and Audi provide long lists of luxury features including leather-trimmed upholstery, driver's seat memory, and premium interior materials such as genuine wood. However, Volvo cars and SUVs stand out amongst the competition thanks to the following luxury features:

  • Four-zone climate control
  • Backrest massaging front seats
  • Heated front and rear seats
  • Tailored dashboard and upper door panels
  • Ventilated front seats


Only one luxury brand has what it takes to provide unmatched safety features. Audi simply cannot compete with the modern safety technology offered by Volvo. From the 360-degree surround view camera to the semi-autonomous drive system Pilot Assist, Volvo greatly surpassed Audi when it comes to safety. Additional Volvo safety features include:

  • Lane keeping aid
  • Oncoming lane mitigation
  • Active Bending Lights
  • Road Sign Information

State-of-the-art Technology

Modern technology features are vital to keeping you connected while behind the wheel, and your passengers entertained on trips of any length. Features such as a graphical head-up display, premium audio systems, and smartphone integration can be found with both Volvo and Audi models. However, Volvo takes technology to the next level by offering a longer list of standard features, and options not available with any Audi model. Key features include:

  • 9-in. center display touchscreen
  • 3-in. digital driver display
  • Sensus Connect®
  • Sensus Navigation
  • Voice Control
