2018 Volvo V60 vs. 2018 Mercedes E-Class

The stunning 2018 Volvo V60 finds a rival in the 2018 Mercedes E-Class. Are you wondering which between these two cars will standout when compared side by side each other? We can give you the answer to this question. Read this comparison and you will surely realize that the Volvo is still the winner for this challenge.

Design & Style

When you get to see the 2018 Volvo V60, you will definitely conclude that you will soon own a handsome compact wagon. This five-seat ride will truly give you an elegant car from the outside. Inside it, you will notice how the interior remains classy with the inclusion of materials that are of high quality. You will also love the fact that it is blessed with comfortable seats that will work to your delight as the end user.

The 2018 Mercedes E-Class, on the other hand, is a picture of timeless sophistication. You will see this defined in its exterior as well as the quality of materials used in the cabin. When you get inside it, you will recognize it for its roominess and for the comfort of the seats, the way you do when you get inside the V60. The sloping roofline can be bothersome for other passengers staying at the rear seat though.

Technology & Safety

There are two packages that define the technology and safety features for the 2018 Volvo V60. First on the list is the Volvo Sensus which is packed with tech features like a 7-inch touchscreen display, eight-speaker audio system, and Bluetooth interface among others. The other package is for the safety features and is called the Volvo Technology package. This one includes Distance Alert and Queue Assist which will give you a better and safer experience on the road while traveling.

In the case of the 2018 Mercedes E-Class, you will notice too that it has been equipped with technologies that work good enough for its brothers from the same maker. It has a high-resolution display too. Safety features are also good enough for this car with the inclusion of features for semi-autonomous driving. However, you should take note that steering wheel controls are touch-sensitive. You have to be very careful not to touch them while you are driving unless needed.


The 2018 Volvo V60 gets its power from its four-cylinder, a 2.0-liter engine which gives it a maximum torque of 258lb-ft and a power for 240 horses. Its wagon counterpart from the 2018 Mercedes E-Class, on the other hand, is gifted with a larger size V6 engine that has a 3.0-liter capacity. This gives it a maximum output of up to 354lb-ft of torque and 329 horsepower. The problem with the Mercedes wagon is that the standard suspension feels stiff especially when you are driving over rough surfaces.

The Bottom Line

The maker of the 2018 Volvo V60 has a lot of reasons to be proud because despite going head to head with the 2018 Mercedes E-Class, the Volvo is a clear winner. You can go back to this review every time you feel like giving the E-Class a second glance.
