When it comes to choosing a comfortable vehicle that is fit for long rides, the 2020 Volvo S60 is not likely to be missed out on the top choices. Its selling point is its comfortable cabin that is roomy enough to stretch out after a long drive. More than its roomy interior, the S60 has more to offer making it a difficult car to beat in its class.

Being in a competitive segment is a huge challenge for the 2020 Subaru Legacy. It would take a lot to match against the big names in the auto industry, especially against any Volvo. Here is a comparison to see how the Legacy can learn from a superb vehicle like the S60.

Design & Style

It is difficult not to fall in love with the confident exterior of the S60. Its sleek profile is accentuated with muscular shoulder lines and well-sculpted sides. It is even more stunning with its distinct Volvo grille and Thor's Hammer headlights. The cabin is just as delightful with premium materials and minimalist styling details.

The Legacy is not ugly but it looks plain and boring compared to the S60. There are very few noticeable changes on its updated design from last year. What is more prominent are the striking similarities it have with the latest model of the Outback.

Technology & Safety

When it comes to infotainment, you can expect nothing less from the S60. The tech features are so convenient to use with the latest Sensus technology. The integration of both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto also made it more intuitive and non-distracting to use. There are also an abundance of car safety features to keep everyone safe with every drive.

The Legacy is well-equipped with technology but it seems that they are there only for a show. Many of them are either a hit or a miss and most of the driver-safety features frequently crash down.


The effortless performance of the S60 is attributed to its sophisticated chassis and precise electric steering. The potency of every drive is dependent on the three available engine choices, from 250-hp on the base and up to 400 hp for the hybrid motor. The driving style is also customizable using the different drive modes.

The Legacy offers a total of six trim levels, the performance varies greatly according to the mix of upgrades that they come with. Two engine choices are also available with most of the lower trims powered by a 2.5-liter 182-hp engine.

The Bottom Line

Between the 2020 Subaru Legacy and the 2020 Volvo S60, one can instantly see the differences which made the S60 superior. The Legacy needs to improve its appearance so as not to be mistaken for the Outback. The tech features also needs to be more cohesive in order not to look like a mish-mash of useless gadgets.
