The 2020 Volvo S60 has an upscale, spacious interior and a trio of engaging powertrain choices, but a frustrating infotainment system and a small trunk keep this car in the middle of our luxury small car rankings.

The 2021 Nissan Altima ranks in the middle of the midsize car class. It has a spacious, comfortable interior and strong engine options, but it's overshadowed by rivals with spiffier cabins and better handling composure.

Design & Style

The 2021 Nissan Altima has a seating space for five, but only two can be seated comfortably at the back. There's nothing much to talk about standard features, but you have upgrades like heated steering wheel, heated front seats and leather upholstery. The clean design of Nissan Altima looks good, but it does not have the appeal of a luxury model.

The 2020 Volvo S60 can seat 5 people comfortably that comes standard with 10-way power-adjustable seats. Upgrades include heated rear seats, front seats, massaging front seats and leather upholstery. There's plenty of support and comfortable seats in both the rows. Legroom and headroom is sufficient in both the rows.

Technology & Safety

The 2021 Nissan Altima comes standard with a NissanConnect infotainment system with satellite radio, Bluetooth, 6-speaker system, USB ports, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and 8-inch touch screen. The large physical controls and touch screen functionality helps to make system user-friendly. Some of the standard safety features include a rearview camera, automatic emergency braking and forward collision warning.

Standard features in the 2020 Volvo S60 include 9-inch touch-screen infotainment system, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, satellite radio and USB ports. Sensus infotainment system is easy to use, and you can perform most of the tasks using few steps. Some of the standard safety features include a rearview camera, pedestrian detection, automatic high-beam headlights, forward collision warning and traffic sign recognition. Available safety features include adaptive cruise control, automatic emergency braking, blind spot monitoring and rear parking sensors.


Performance is an important part to consider when you are looking to buy a car. The 2021 Nissan Altima fails to impress with a 188-HP 2.5-liter 4-cylinder engine that is good enough only for daily driving. It is certainly not a match, when we talk about fuel efficiency. The 2020 Volvo S60 comes with a base 250-HP turbo-4 engine. It delivers decent acceleration and offers plenty of oomph with an energetic ride.

The Bottom Line

The 2020 Volvo S60 is a good midsize car, and it does well to stand top of the line in this highly competitive segment. It has everything from robust engine and good fuel economy to comfortable seats and roomy cabin.
