2020 Volvo S60 vs. Its Competition

2020 Volvo S60
Robert Duffer Robert Duffer Senior Editor

Compact luxury sedans are the antidote to crossover fatigue, and there’s not a dull one in the class.

The tech in the Audi A4 exceeds the competitors, but the large and in charge BMW 3-Series is close behind and still has the edge when it comes to performance.

The Mercedes-Benz C-Class offers the comfiest and most refined interior, while the Jaguar XE comes close with its most recent update.

The Genesis G70 is the dark horse here; it can’t be beat on overall value but it can’t beat the cachet of the established luxury brands.
