2022 Volvo S60 vs. Its Competition

2022 Volvo S60
Martin Padgett Martin Padgett Editorial Director

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 has been revamped this year, and its turbo-4 powertrains take a greener tack as Benz shifts to an all-electric future.

The Jaguar XF has taken the same turbo-4 approach, and has revamped infotainment with bigger screens, too.

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.

Yet.
