Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Mercedes-Benz E-Class than the Volvo S60. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Mercedes-Benz E-Class and the Volvo S60 in the front seats.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Mercedes-Benz E-Class as you will with the Volvo S60, as they get the same number of miles per tank of gas.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). The Mercedes-Benz E-Class will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Volvo S60, which has a much lower MSRP.

Dimensions
Since the Mercedes-Benz E-Class is much slimmer than the Volvo S60, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, which is slightly longer than the Volvo S60.

Handling
The Mercedes-Benz E-Class has a larger turning radius than the Volvo S60, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Mercedes-Benz E-Class is somewhat more powerful than the Volvo S60.

Powertrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Mercedes-Benz E-Class transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Volvo S60.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Mercedes-Benz E-Class and the Volvo S60.
