The 2016 Volvo S60 and the 2016 Audi A4 Face Off to Win Over Your Attention


If you are currently shopping for a stylish luxury sedan, two of today's top contenders are the 2016 Volvo S60 and the 2016 Audi A4. Although the 2016 Volvo S90 and the 2016 Audi A4 are often placed in the same category because of their thrill-seeking performance, sophisticated handling and sport-like styling, there are some clear differences that we would like to identify in our friendly comparison.

The 2016 Volvo S60 vs. the 2016 Audi A4

  • Performance: The A4 equips 2.0-liter, four-cylinder engine that outputs 220-horsepower, but it's no match to the four engines that the S60 offers. The entry-level S60, for instance, comes outfitted with a 2.0-liter TF four-cylinder engine that is capable of producing 240-horsepower. Drivers who seek a little extra thrill can opt for the 3.0-liter turbocharged six-cylinder, which delivers 325-horsepower. As you can see, when it comes to performance the S60 outperforms the A4.
  • Fuel Economy: Fuel Economy is desirable among prospective drivers because it can help save money, reduce climate change and increase energy sustainability. If this is important to you, you will be happy to know that the S60 can achieve up to 38 highway mpg. The Audi A4 on the other hand can only offer up to 31 highway mpg..
  • Safety: Although both models earned five-star ratings from the Insurance Institute of Highway Safety, Volvo's mission is to make people's lives safer, and its core values are a demonstration of that. For example, the President and CEO of Volvo Cars stated that their vision is that by 2020 no one should be killed or seriously injured in a new Volvo car. In a growing effort to create a safer highway, Volvo's engineer focused on safety when designing the S60 and its crash tests prove it. In fact, the 2016 S60 earned the Top Safety Pick Plus award - in addition to the Top Safety Pick award we mentioned earlier - making it a desirable safety option.
