The fully redesigned Volvo S60 is truly a delight to look at from the outside. It oozes with a handsome personality that you will definitely be excited about. On the other hand, the 2019 BMW 3-Series presents itself as a luxury sports car with the right edges on its tough exterior. Between these two, the S60 remains to be highly favored by car lovers in Manhattan. This comparison will explain why that is so.

Design & Style

The 2019 Volvo S60 is one tough car to look at. It exudes a level of class that anyone will be eager to have in a luxury small car. It has grilles that fit perfectly into its fa├žade, following its roots of Scandinavian origin. Its stylishness is also evident in its posh cabin, which, like its exterior, has been solidly constructed. There is ample space to accommodate the needs of passengers of all ages and sizes as well.

A sedan that seats up to five people, the 2019 BMW 3-Series is a car gifted with plenty of trunk space. The spacious, supportive seats are grand for this car as well. Despite that effort, it fails to impress modern-day car lovers because of the lack of upscale materials which its rivals offer, the 2019 Volvo S60 included.

Technology & Safety

When it comes to technology and safety, the 2019 Volvo S60 topples down its 2019 BMW 3-Series opponent. Its Sensus infotainment system is made even more comprehensible with the inclusion of a nine-inch touchscreen inside it. The update includes smartphone integration too. For your safety, you can rely on its semi-automated drive system as well as other features like blind spot monitoring with rear cross traffic alert, front and rear parking sensors, and parallel park assists, among others.

Carrying the iDrive infotainment interface, many drivers feel that there still is something missing in the 2019 BMW 3-Series in terms of technology features. It is loaded with plenty of gimmicks but these do not really work as promised. Daytime pedestrian detection, automatic emergency braking, and lane departure warning are among its safety features.


An engine with a four-cylinder, 2.0-liter capacity provides power for the 2019 Volvo S60. In total, it produces an output of up to 258lb-ft of torque and 250 horsepower. Meanwhile, the 2019 BMW 3-Series has a four-cylinder, 2.0-liter engine which is capable of producing up to as much as 255 horsepower and 295lb-ft of torque.

The Bottom Line

With a great-looking body, a solidly constructed and classy interior, remarkable technology and safety features, and a powerful engine, the 2019 Volvo S60 is a real winner in this battle. It definitely deserves all the attention that it gets from car lovers out there.
