2016 Volvo V60 vs. Its Competition

2017 Volvo V60 Edition

The BMW 3-Series continues to set the standard for luxury compact performance, but it's much more expensive. The Audi Allroad brings added ground clearance and quattro sophistication, but the crossover-like cladding and ride height may not be what V60 buyers want. The Volkswagen Golf SportWagen has a brand that's even less prestigious than the Volvo's, but costs less and offers a diesel option. The Volvo XC60 is the more practical version of the V60, with much more cargo room and family-friendliness.
