Comparison Review

Comfort
The Mercedes-Benz E-Class offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Volvo V60 with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Mercedes-Benz E-Class and the Volvo V60 in the front seats.

Convenience
The Mercedes-Benz E-Class will require fewer stops at the gas station than the Volvo V60, making it more convenient to drive.

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 V60, which has a much lower MSRP. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Mercedes-Benz E-Class and the Volvo V60 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Mercedes-Benz E-Class is about the same width as the Volvo V60. 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 V60.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Mercedes-Benz E-Class does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Volvo V60.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Mercedes-Benz E-Class has a much more powerful engine than the Volvo V60. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

Utility
The Mercedes-Benz E-Class offers greater seating capacity than the Volvo V60, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the Mercedes-Benz E-Class will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Volvo V60.

Warranty
The Mercedes-Benz E-Class comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Volvo V60.
