The 2021 Volvo S60 is one of the most stylish sedans out there with a very distinct character. Spacious and powerful, this is a car that will tick all the right boxes with motorists out there. It comes with a host of new features but still maintains the excellent sporty looks and feel that you have come to love.

When it comes to the 2021 Jaguar XF, you get the same level of comfort and performance that you would expect from a Jaguar model. It would seem however that Jaguar has not learnt from the 2020 model. The interior is still less than premium, a fact that takes away from this excellent automobile. Let us see how the two vehicles compare to each other

Design & Style

Building on the success of the 2020 model, Volvo has made the interior of the 2021 S60 even more delightful. Everything inside the vehicle feels and looks premium. Despite the compact nature of this sedan, it still has enough headspace and legroom even at the rear. You get generous trunk space, which makes this sporty sedan even more versatile.

The 2021 Jaguar is also a handsome vehicle to look at. Even though not much has changed, Jaguar's styling cues still produce an excellent looking vehicle. The interior looks good as well although as mentioned, a closer look reveals some sub-par materials that should not be in a vehicle of this pedigree

Technology & Safety

Featuring Android Auto and Apple CarPlay as standard, the 2021 Volvo S60 has everything that you would want in a vehicle in this category. The infotainment system is operated by a large rotary dial in the middle of the console, making it safer to use even when operating the vehicle. The audio system is excellent although there are options that you could choose to upgrade. Most drivers however will be ok with the standard music system.

With the 2021 Jaguar XF, you get a decent infotainment system. The system is operated via touch which makes it a little hard to operate especially when in motion. It does not help matters that the system is a little sluggish. Apart from smartphone integration, many of the other nice tech features are options.


With the 2021 Volvo S60, you get to choose between an All-wheel drive and a front wheel drive option. Both are powered by an extremely capable 250 horsepower turbocharged engine. If you opt for the hybrid version, then you get more power, up to 400hp. In all trims however, you will never be lacking in power and the Volvo feels nimble going around corners.

The 2021 XF is powered by a turbocharged four-cylinder engine that should, in theory, provide adequate power to the sedan. In reality, you have to upgrade to the V6 version the get anything close to what you would expect from a Jaguar-badged vehicle. Still, the ride dynamics are excellent and the vehicle is very comfortable to drive.

The Bottom Line

With the 2021 Volvo S60, you get a vehicle that just keeps getting better and better. Ride dynamics are excellent without compromising the sporty nature of the sedan. With the 2021 Jaguar XF, there are some let-downs such as the terrible base engine and the shabby interior. This makes the 2021 Volvo S60 the obvious winner in this comparison.
