The 2018 Volvo S60 seems to have a tough competitor in the 2018 Mercedes C-Class. Well, at least that is how you see things from the outside. On top of that, however, you still need to consider factors that will affect your final decision before purchasing either of these two. If you want help with that, this comparison can be your guide.

Design & Style

Looking at the 2018 Volvo S60, it is easy to realize how beautiful it really is. Imagine those smooth and refined lines and how they have added elements of sportiness to its overall look. Inside it, you will be left in awe with the finishing touches made on top of the excellent quality materials which have been used. The sturdy construction is evident too and will surely make you enjoy your money's worth. Seats are comfortable as well which will remove strain on your back while you are taking a long trip.

For the 2018 Mercedes Benz C-Class, it is quite obvious that the maker strived hard to make sure that the quality of materials is never sacrificed for this car model. This will work to your comfort. Well, if you are to take a closer look at other things under the design and style aspect, though, you will be dismayed. Consider that the looks are not that impressive. Space has also been compromised and there is a lack of legroom in the rear seats.

Technology & Safety

The 2018 Volvo S60 knows how to please its customers in terms of technology and safety. Gifted with top-of-the-line 12-speaker Harman/Kardon audio system, you will really have something to look forward to along this aspect. Adaptive bi-xenon headlights add some touchups to the car as well. For other safety aids, you will love the inclusion of a full-speed automatic emergency braking system, pedestrian and cyclist detection, as well as a collision warning system.

The 2018 Mercedes C-Class is gifted with the COMAND infotainment system which has great features included in it. Usability-wise, it is defeated by what the Volvo S60 offers. It may have a trace pad interface but this one is deemed useless, much more confusing to the user. Advanced safety driver aids are not also available for the base level model.


The 2018 Volvo S60 is gifted with two, four-cylinder engines under its hood. One of the engines is turbocharged while the other is super and turbocharged at the same time. This explains why it is capable of producing a yield of up to 302 horsepower and 295lb-ft of torque. As for the 2018 Mercedes C-Class's four-cylinder engine, only a maximum yield of 273ln-ft of torque and 241 horsepower can be achieved.

The Bottom Line

The comparison above says it all. The 2018 Volvo S60 exudes class from the inside, out and is truly blessed with features that avid car lovers will surely be proud of. It performs better than the C-Class as well. The Volvo is a real winner in this case.
