The S80 D5 is going to be launched in Thailand mid March and its only other rival in the same "luxury" market is the E220 CDi. On paper, the Merc beats the D5 in fuel consumption (all: combine, highay and city) and range. The Merc seem to be superior in just about everything on paper too. However, the merc is imported and is taxed heavily making it about 1.3 million Baht (25,000 Euro) more expensive than the locally assembled Volvo.
Apart from the price differences, are there any "positive" points which the Volvo may be superior to the Merc?
