The Volvo S60 vs. the Luxury Sedan Competition

A classic design and secure trunk space for cargo are hallmarks of the sedan style of car. At Volvo Cars Princeton, we proudly carry a selection of cars that not only deliver the signature sedan traits you're after, but also deliver the high-end, world-class quality inherent in the Volvo name. We work hard to match every driver who visits us in the greater Trenton area with their perfect fit, and if you're in the market for a luxurious, compact sedan, we're ready to introduce you to our Volvo S60.

The smallest model in the Volvo lineup, the S60 is a compact, four-door sedan that delivers seating for five people and all the creature comforts and safety features Philadelphia and Princeton, NJ drivers are looking for. It's also unique in the Volvo lineup as the only model that's completely engineered and built in the United States, by American workers, at the Volvo plant in South Carolina.

While the Volvo S60 has everything Cherry Hill, NJ and Trenton drivers are looking for, we also know it's not the only luxury car competing for attention. To help illustrate everything that sets the S60 apart, we've put together this page to compare luxury cars in this area. We hope this helps you as you make your next car-buying decision.

Volvo S60 vs. Audi A4

  • Output and powertrains. While the Volvo S60 has four great engines, including a nice hybrid option, available, the Audi A4 has just two, with no hybrid in the mix. Plus, not only does the Volvo have more options for you to choose from, it also gives more power across the board. The S60 starts you off with 250 horsepower at the base engine, and goes up from there, while the Audi starts at just 188 horsepower and tops out at 248 horsepower.
  • Interior space. The Volvo S60 is more spacious inside than the Audi A4 as well. Look for more headroom, legroom, and elbow room in the S60 when compared to the A4, especially in the front seats.

Volvo S60 vs. BMW 3 Series

  • Hybrid option. Volvo delivers the choices drivers really want with this highly customizable sedan. Several trims are available, as well as four powertrain options, including a smooth, 400-horsepower hybrid engine. The BMW 3 Series sedan has fewer trims and just two engines available, with no hybrid option in the lineup.
  • Luxury amenities. Both brand names are known for giving drivers what they want for amenities and features. But the Volvo S60 does so standard with a variety of sought-after creature comforts standard across the board, including heated seats. The BMW 3 Series makes many of its luxury amenities, such as heated seats, optional for extra cost.

Volvo S60 vs. Mercedes-Benz C-Class

  • Safety features. The level of innovation and craftsmanship Volvo pours into their safety features is legendary, and the S60 is a great example of why. Every new S60 gets a comprehensive list of advanced safety features that includes a drowsy driver monitor, full-speed automatic emergency braking, run off-road mitigation, and much more. While the Mercedes-Benz C-Class includes several nice safety features, it doesn't have the same high level of standard features as the S60.
  • Hybrid efficiency. Unlike the other models on this list, the Mercedes-Benz C-Class does offer an assortment of powertrain options, similar to the roster of options available for the Volvo S60. However, while one of the S60 options is a cutting-edge hybrid system, the C-Class doesn't have a hybrid anywhere in its lineup of available engines.
