The 2021 Mercedes Benz C-Class and the 2020 Volvo S60 are two top-rated models in the market, known for their impressive features. If you have an eye on two of these, the below comparison will help you in judging which one is a better vehicle.

Design & Style

The 2021 Mercedes-Benz is a 5-seater in sedan body style and four-seater in coupe body style. The front seats look comfortable with standard power adjustments, but the rear seats can squeeze out adults. The interior is pretty average for a luxury cabin, and the overall design is too minimalistic.

On the other hand, the 2020 Volvo S60 is a 5-seater car that comes equipped with 10-way power adjustable seats. You can upgrade to additional seating amenities including a crystal shift knob, Nappa leather upholstery and heated steering wheel. You can get ample headroom and legroom across both the rows.

Technology & Safety

The C-Class comes standard with a 10.25-inch infotainment screen that is positioned quite high in center stack. The screen is accessible from the driver seat, but the touch screen is not that responsive. The infotainment system can be controlled via the rotary knob on the center console. Apple Carplay and Android Auto come standard. Speaking of safety, you have features like lane departure warning, driver attention monitoring, blind spot monitoring, automatic emergency braking, pedestrian detection and forward collision warning.

The 2020 Volvo S60 comes standard with 9-inch touch screen infotainment system, along with some key features including moonroof, dual-zone climate, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. There are plenty of premium features available as optional. The system is pretty easy to use, and one can easily master the same in no time. You have overabundance of standard safety features, including lane keep assist, traffic sign  recognition, forward collision warning, pedestrian detection, automatic emergency braking and a rearview camera.


Performance is the backbone of any vehicle. Speaking of which, the 2021 Mercedes-Benz C-Class comes standard with a 255-HP turbo-four engine coupled with a 9-speed automatic transmission. It offers enough oomph for most situations, but fails to merge quickly on highways.

On the other hand, the 2020 Volvo S60 comes standard with three engine choices including the base T5 engine offering a sufficient amount of power. With the T6 upgrade, it can put out 316 HP of power, having mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission.

The Bottom Line

Given the above comparison, it is easy to understand why Volvo S60 is one of the top-rated cars in the market, with plenty of features  on offer, including a cabin space, fuel economy and composed ride. The athletic handling and robust powertrain are the biggest upsides.
