The 2019 Volvo V60 may look sporty but it has that certain gentle charm that most sports cars don't have. It is primarily because even if Volvo vehicles can go fast, the brand is able to maintain a good reputation in terms of car safety. This is also the main reason why other vehicles tend to look inferior against any Volvo. Let us check if the 2019 Honda Accord can compare against the proven charm of the V60.  

Design & Style

The V60 looks confident with its Scandinavian styling. Even though there are only subtle design revisions for the 2019 model, they were done so well that it looks like the car had a full redesign. The athletic character is more pronounced with the sharply defined shoulders. The interior also looks modern and sophisticated. The posh quality of the cabin is amplified by the sunroof that provides plenty of natural light inside.

The Accord is undoubtedly one of the best-looking sedans out there with the addition of more right angles and hard edges on its exterior. The cabin, however, lacks the sophistication of a luxury vehicle but the materials look convincingly high-end too.

Technology & Safety

To maximize entertainment, navigation, and safety features, the V60 is equipped with the Sensus system to control everything. The bold and clear graphics of the touchscreen display is useful at showing maps and other useful driving information. The innovative safety features are, of course, the icing of the cake since they are reliable and are rated as one of the highest.

Honda played it safe for the Accord's infotainment system. There are no fancy features but everything works extremely well. It has both Android Auto and Apple CarPlay so you can say that it is also modern in some ways. Even the safety features are only standard but they work great and are reliable in most situations.


Under the V60's hood is a mighty 4-cylinder engine that easily delivers 250 horsepower. Aside from a smooth power delivery, you can expect the V60 to be fast and superior on the road. The car may be light but it is made with sturdy materials to ensure a sporty driving experience.

What makes the Accord a lot less exciting is the 1.5-liter engine for its base model. It can only deliver as much as 192 hp and this is not enough for reasonably fast performance. It helps that the powertrain is responsive and that it sticks to the road very well too.

The Bottom Line

If you are looking for a good-looking car that is fast yet reliable, then the 2019 Volvo V60 is the best choice. The 2019 Honda Accord is a sensible car but playing it too safe from the in-car tech down to its performance made it look really inferior to the V60.
