Compare The Volvo S60 Sedan

The Volvo S60 vs. the Sport Sedan Competition

The luxury sedan class has long been one of the most competitive classes of vehicles, which has helped create some of the most impressive cars of all time. Today's market holds many wonderful models for car shoppers craving the style, performance, and sophistication of a luxury sedan, but that selection doesn't make finding your best fit easy. That's where we come in.

We have complete faith that car shoppers around Scranton will find the Volvo S60 is the luxury sedan most capable of providing the qualities they crave. So much faith, in fact, that we've compared it with other luxury sedans like the BMW 3 Series, Audi A4, Mercedes-Benz C Class, Acura TLX, and Lexus IS. If you're considering this class or one of those models, be sure to read how it compares with the Volvo S60!

Volvo S60 vs. Audi A4

  • The four-cylinder engine that comes standard in the Volvo S60 has 250 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque for a near-instant acceleration while standard four of the Audi A4 sits below 200 horsepower.
  • Both sport sedans offer other engines for those that want more power or a hybrid, but the S60 again stays ahead of the A4 in raw power and overall performance. Plus, the A4 doesn't offer a hybrid powertrain.
  • The new S60 comes standard with the Pilot Assist semi-autonomous driving system that can steer, brake, and accelerate without driver input while the A4 doesn't have a system nearly as smart as this.

Volvo S60 vs. BMW 3 Series

  • Those that hate wasting time at gas stations will prefer the more efficient Volvo S60 that also has a plug-in hybrid option. The BMW 3 Series goes through fuel more quickly and doesn't offer a hybrid engine.
  • Efficiency doesn't come at the cost of performance in the Volvo S60 as it has a more powerful four-cylinder than the new 3 Series as well as the engine with most horsepower, 400, of the bunch.
  • The S60 is a testament to the value you can still find in the luxury sedan class as it comes standard with features like Apple CarPlay, a Blind Spot Information System, and 13-speaker sound system from Harman Kardon that you won't find in the BMW 3 Series.

Volvo S60 vs. Mercedes-Benz C Class

  • Inside and out, the Volvo S60 has a flowing design that feels natural, graceful, and easy to use, which sets it apart from the Mercedes-Benz C Class that has some clunk tech in the cabin that feels obtrusive.
  • The tech in the S60 is more natural fit than that in the C Class, and the S60 comes standard with more. Examples include a panoramic sunroof, LED headlights with active bending light, and 4G Wi-Fi connection.
  • Performance enthusiasts will find the more impressive engine in the Volvo S60 as the twin-engine plug-in hybrid of the Volvo sedan treats you to 400 horsepower and 472 pound-feet of torque while offering the ability to just use the electric motor for power.

Volvo S60 vs. Lexus IS 300

  • The performance of the S60 is a testament to the hard work of Volvo engineers as its standard engine has more horsepower, torque more readily available, and is more efficient than what Wilkes-Barre drivers get in the Lexus IS 300.
  • Your passengers will be happier with the Volvo S60 as it has more rear legroom, headroom, and shoulder room as well as more trunk space than  the Lexus IS delivers.
  • Android and iPhone owners can agree that the Android Auto and Apple CarPlay programs make using their favorite apps and making/taking calls easier and safer, but you'll only find those systems in the Volvo S60.

Volvo S60 vs. Acura TLX

  • The S60 luxury sedan manages to be more efficient in the city and on the highway while also delivering much more horsepower and torque than what you'll get in the Acura TLX.
  • When you want your drives to relax you, the Volvo S60 is the clear choice between these luxury sedans as it offers everything from four-zone climate control to a massage function with the front seats, which the TLX doesn't have.
  • The Volvo S60 takes several steps to ensure that it's one of the safest sedans available as it has a Side Impact Protection System, Active Bending Lights, and rear collision mitigation support. The Acura TLX doesn't have as many layers of support for your safety.
