The sleek LED headlights boast a futuristic feel while the dynamic daytime running lights have the audacity to slice clear across the headlight treatment. Striving to exude power and confidence, the S60 features stylish contours across its waistline while unique unapologetic taillights stand boldly at the S60s rear.

Striving to mimic the striking design of the 2020 S60, the 2020 Audi A4 boasts similar design cues. A long sloped hood, sleek headlights, and an athletic front fascia set the tone for the A4, boasting aggressive but muted flares of attitude. At its rear, smoked LED taillights give off an athletic presence, while a built-in trunk-lip spoiler aims at livening up the party amidst the A4's toned down style.

Performance Diversified

Driving the 2020 S60 is a standard 2.0-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine that puts out a thrilling 250-horsepower and 258lb-ft of torque. The quick powertrain is mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission and drives power to the front wheels, while returning an EPA-estimated 34MPG on the highway. Whether you crave power or efficiency, the 2020 Volvo S60 gives you both and doesn't make you choose between one or the other. Pumping out more power out of the same engine, the S60 T6 manages to put out an astounding 316 horsepower and 295lb-ft of torque. Mated to a quick-shifting 8-speed automatic transmission, power is driven to all four wheels and allows the S60 to return an EPA-estimated 32MPG on the highway. Boasting power and efficiency, the 2020 S60 features an efficient hybrid that allows you to save at the pump while never sacrificing fuel economy. The incredible hybrid boasts 400 horsepower and 472lb-ft of torque.

The 2020 Audi A4 is driven by one of two adequate turbocharged 4-cylinder engines. The standard 2.0-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine puts out 188 horsepower and 236lb-ft of torque. Power is driven to the front wheels via a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. The more powerful engine is also a 2.0-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine, and delivers 248 horsepower and 273lb-ft of torque. Power is driven to all four corners thanks to Audi's Quattro all-wheel-drive system Though comparable to the base model engine of the S60, the A4 simply can't keep up with the Sweedish sports sedan.

A Captivating Cabin Experience

The 2020 Volvo S60 boasts a minimalist yet stylish design that blends every inch of the cabin to be a fine experience. Everything from its unique air vents which boast slender metal-finished controls, to diamond-patterned finished found on the ignition and drive-mode controller, the S60 has been finely crafted to perform and impress without screaming for attention. Its seats have been finely bolstered to hug you while you tackle sharp curves, while seats throughout the cabin boast incredible comfort. The available dual-pane panoramic moonroof boasts incredible sky views, while even passengers riding in the rear seats stay comfortable thanks to available 4-zone automatic climate control.

The 2020 Audi A4 sedan boasts a handsome design that is eye-catching while added bells and whistles supposedly add function to the cabin. Boasting a sleek layout, the interior of the A4 is aesthetically pleasing, but not engineered to the standards of the Volvo. Many functional touchpads and buttons may sound like they add prestige to the cabin, they also add to driver distraction. Volvo Group boasts all the functions that a driver would need in a streamlined design, allowing you to power forward without distraction.

Boasting a Priority on Safety

In addition to incredible driving dynamics, the 2020 S60 puts a heavy emphasis on safety. Protecting you and your passengers is standard City Safety, Volvo's team of safety and driver-assist software that helps you avoid potential danger by identifying dangers, alerting you, and taking action if necessary. Highlighted in the safety suite is Run-Off Road Mitigation, which avoids the S60 from departing the road by using steering and tactical braking to prevent you from leaving the road. Standard driver-assist features in the 2020 A4 include rain-sensing windshield wipers, and standard High Beam Assist.

Advanced, Yet Simplified Function

Saving time and keeping you in touch is a vivid 9-inch Sensus Touchscreen display that brings all your connectivity, smartphone integration, and vehicle controls that you need. Boasting a simple, uncomplicated layout, controls are easy to operate and offer minimal distraction while driving.

The A4 brings connectivity via a “floating” 10.1-inch MMI® touch display that brings connectivity and vehicle controls. However, Audi's infotainment interface is complex and distracting, not always helping you complete basic commands while driving. Though complicated, available smartphone integration and other amenities help get the job done.
