When thinking of buying cars and you have listed the most luxurious ones, you will end up being confused when making a choice. This is true if you do not start your search with gathering information that is essential in making your final judgment. If you are in this same predicament and you are thinking of buying either the 2019 Volvo S60 or the 2019 Mercedes-Benz A-Class, here is a comparison to help you with.

Design & Style

When you take a look at the 2019 Volvo S60, you will notice that the modern styling is evident on its body. That shiny finish on its exterior makes it attractive. It embodies what Scandinavian design is all about in the world of cars. It has enough space inside too, with high-quality materials used in its overall interior design.

Seating five people like the S60, the 2019 Mercedes-Benz A-Class, is one that is stylish, as evidenced by the choice of materials used in constructing its interior. The use of plastic materials to support the base of the backseat though deducts points from it on this aspect. The trunk is very small too when compared to its rivals.

Technology & Safety

There is a lot of things to appreciate in the 2019 Volvo S60 especially when you speak about technology features. Consider how it has been gifted with the remarkable and user-friendly Sensus infotainment system that works to support smartphone integration, navigation, and all other features that it has. In the case of the safety aspect, you will enjoy its semi-automated system which is called the Pilot Assist.

Introducing a brand new infotainment interface which is called the Mercedes-Benz User Experience, the 2019 Mercedes-Benz A-Class now allows the use of voice commands in a more conversational manner. It also comes with two 7-inch screens for the system. Supporting smartphone integration, you may need to upgrade to a better setup but be willing to pay the price. Pedestrian detection, automatic emergency braking, and forward collision warning are among its driver aids.


Powering the hood of the 2019 Volvo S60 is an engine that spans four cylinders and 2.0 liters in terms of capacity. This makes it capable of reaching an output of 258lb-ft of torque and 250 horsepower. This performs better than the four-cylinder, 2.0-liter engine under the 2019 Mercedes-Benz A-Class's hood. The latter only yields up to 188 horsepower and 221lb-ft of torque. Stiff ride is evident in 4Matic models for this car.

The Bottom Line

There is indeed a lot of reasons to love the 2019 Volvo S60 as exemplified by this comparison. Even an established brand like Mercedes-Benz cannot put this good car down.
