With a potent engine lineup and a luxurious cabin, the 2019 Volvo S60 promises car buyers in Manhattan a blissful ride. This five-seating capacity small luxury car has also fully redesigned its previous version.

As for the 2019 Lexus IS, it has enhanced its base models in terms of handling too and now offers an optional Lexus Enform Remote. Experience a smooth relaxing ride too when inside this vehicle.

Design & Style

The 2019 Volvo S60 carries itself as a handsome Scandinavian car. It has that combination of modernity and sportiness outside, as evidenced by its well-defined edges and its sturdy built. In the cabin, there is plenty of space to seat five adults. Add to these, you will notice only the most premium quality materials in its construction.

The Lexus IS, on the other hand, has an elegant and comfortable interior, ready to offer you that smooth and relaxing ride. There is a problem with its small trunk though. Seating up to five people, the rear seats lack legroom thus is best used only by young ones. Synthetic leather is the only material offered for its seat upholstery.

Technology & Safety

The 2019 Volvo S60 easily impresses in terms of technology. Its touchscreen is said to be very responsive, thus making its Sensus infotainment system even more functional. Add to these, it also supports smartphone integration. Lane-keeping assist, lane departure warning, blind-spot monitoring, adaptive cruise control, and the automatic emergency braking are among its driver aids. It also has a Pilot Assist feature included as a standard.

When it comes to the 2019 Lexus IS, it is noticeable that the infotainment system works poorly. People complain about the rotary knob that is used with the setup. The optional Remote Touch controller is not even easy to use. It comes with a seven-inch display and two USB ports.


Coming in various configurations, the 2019 Lexus IS produces different outputs for each. For its IS 300 base model, the four-cylinder engine results in 241 horsepower. The IS 300 with an all-wheel-drive carries a V6, boosting only up to 260 horsepower. The IS 350, on the other hand, has a V6 that results in 311 horsepower.

The 2019 Volvo S60, on the other hand, starts its power for the T5 at 250 horsepower. This goes up to 316 horsepower for the T6. The T8, on the other hand, which is equipped with electrical motors, results in 400 horsepower.

The Bottom Line

Both offering different engine variations, it is obvious that the engine performance of the S60 defeats that of the IS. It also has a great body to boast all around, plus a set of technology features that everyone will love. It definitely deserves all the attention that it gets.
