Volvo and Mercedes-Benz are two top-rated car brands in the industry, known for their extensive selection of models of offer. Two of them include the 2021 Mercedes-Benz C-Class and the 2020 Volvo V60. Let us compare these cars to understand better.

Design & Style

The 2021 Mercedes-Benz C-Class is a 5-seater sedan with comfortable front seats and standard power adjustments. There's good lateral support as well, however, this is completely opposite for the rear seats. This small car features a minimalistic interior, along with a retro-looking air vents and some coll touches.

The 2020 Volvo V60 is great vehicle with ample interior space on offer. Most of the seating amenities come standard, including power-adjustable side bolsters, power front-seat high extensions and ventilated front seats. The interior is replete with quality materials and the overall aesthetic appeal is extraordinary.

Technology & Safety

The 2021 Mercedes-Benz C-Class comes standard with a 10.25-inch infotainment system with a screen that looks tacked on.  The screen is easy to see from the driving seats, but the graphics are not that crisp. Other key features include 5-speaker stereo, HD radio, USB ports, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi hot spot. Speaking of safety features, all the models come equipped with crosswind assist, a rearview camera, driver attention monitoring, blind spot monitoring, automatic emergency braking, pedestrian detection and forward collision warning.

The 2020 Volvo V60 comes equipped with a 9-inch screen, Android Auto, Apple CarPlay. 10-speaker stereo system and USB ports.  The Sensus infotainment system is one of the best you will find in the market. Touch screen controls most of the settings, and it is extremely easy to use it. Some of the standard safety features in this model include a rearview camera, lane departure warning, lane keep assist, traffic sign recognition, forward collision warning, pedestrian detection and automatic emergency braking.


The 2021 Mercedes-Benz C-Class is powered by a 255-HP turbo-four engine mated to a 9-speed automatic transmission. It offers enough muscle for daily driving, but fails to cruise on highways. If you are looking for a more muscular option, consider the 2020 Volvo V60 which offers smoother acceleration and higher gas mileage. You can drive in different modes, including Comfort, Dynamic, Eco and Individual.

The Bottom Line

The 2020 Volvo V60 is a strong contender in the competitive luxury small car class, having outclassed many rivals. If you are looking for nimble handling and user-friendly infotainment system, this is the vehicle to go for. Mercedes C-Class is not a bad choice, but with the kind of attributes on offer, one may feel lack of few key aspects, which is present in V60.
