Often included in the list of luxury small cars is the 2019 Volvo S60. It exudes that kind of elegance that any car buyer in Manhattan can easily fall for. It found a competitor in the 2019 Audi A5 though. In this comparison, you will discover why more people love the S60 over the A5.

Design & Style

A car that is more than just stylish and modern to look at, the 2019 Volvo S60 is a perfect picture of a luxury car. It has been solidly constructed too, making it a great car to own in terms of design. The car also has a well-defined interior, built to provide comfort and elegance, all rolled into one. With this car, you also get the amount of space that you need in order to accommodate up to five people inside.

Having a well-designed, high-class cabin is the 2019 Audi A5. Available in three variants, the Sportback, Coupe, and Convertible, there is much comfort to enjoy in the front seat of this car, most especially when taking long trips. Side support and bolstering are also available. The undersized trunk and rear seat are problems you will encounter along this aspect for the A5.

Technology & Safety

One of the best technology features that you will ever find in the 2019 Volvo S60 is its Sensus infotainment system. The system has an easy-to-use interface which also complements all other technologies found in it. The semi-automated drive system works very well too, guaranteeing to suit your needs when you drive even on tough terrains.

On the other hand, the 2019 Audi A5 features a 7-inch display for its infotainment system. It is dismaying to find out that instead of a touchscreen interface, you need to use the controller instead, one feature that makes it lag behind the S60. This controller can be very tricky to use at times, and may even distract you along the way. Upgrading to the larger touchscreen display is optional and comes with a price. For your safety, it carries the Pre Sense Basic, including forwarding collision warning, automatic emergency braking, and pedestrian detection. If you want a longer list of safety aids, you must be willing to upgrade.


Configured with a four-cylinder, 2.0-liter engine, the 2019 Audi A5 gets a total output of 273lb-ft of torque and 248 horsepower. The 2019 Volvo S60, on the other hand, has a total output of 250 horsepower and 258lb-ft of torque for its four-cylinder, 2.0-liter engine.

The Bottom Line

With an upscale comfortable cabin and a strong engine lineup, you will surely love the 2019 Volvo S60. This car guarantees a blissful ride too, making the entire experience even more favorable for car passengers. This should definitely be your next car.
