The 2021 Nissan 370Z is a beautiful vehicle with a race car inspired design. Its appearance, handling and interior gadgetry make it coveted by many. But how does it stack up against the 2021 Volvo S60, a sporty sedan with a turbocharged engine, top of the line seats and hybrid option?

Design & Style

While the Volvo S60 is high end, it is definitely not ostentatious. It features the minimalist style that the brand has become known for. It has overhangs which have been shortened, along with an extended beak and prominent fenders. It comes with 18 inch wheels but those that want larger can upgrade. It has LED lights which are shaped like a hammer and in the cabin passengers will be presented with metallic mesh, authentic leather and driftwood. The Nissan 370Z has clean and smooth lines which are aerodynamically inspired. Buyers can add retro 1970s style race stripes and the cabin is rich in digitized screens and switches which give drivers unparalleled control over various functions and the trim is made of fine Alcantara leather.

Technology & Safety

The Nissan 370Z is packed with the latest safety tech. This includes impact warnings, emergency automated brakes, cruise control, blind area monitoring and multiple airbags. It also has a standardized camera for the rearview which makes it easier to get it into tighter spaces. Amenities within its cabin include Bluetooth, Bose audio, noise cancellation, heated seats and USB ports. The Volvo S60 has all of the safety countermeasures found in the Nissan, including LED auto dimming lights, blind area monitoring and the ability to sense traffic, earning it a Top Safety Pick award. Amenities within its cabin include the choice of Apple CarPlay or Android Auto, Harman Kardon sound, powered seats, paddle shifters and stitched dash.

Performance

Those that purchase the Volvo S60 T8 will get a battery connected plugin and motor which can generate up to 400 horsepower. This translates into twenty two miles worth of electrical charge. The Nissan 370Z is built for speed and maneuverability. It is outfitted with a V6, 3.7 liter engine that can generate 332 horsepower with 270 pounds of torque, which is naturally aspirated. Though it comes with a manual six speed transmission, buyers can instead choose a seven speed automatic.

The Bottom Line

The 370Z and S60 are similarly priced and comparable when it comes to safety and luxury features. However, the Volvo has a distinct performance advantage, and some feel the Nissan's cabin is a bit dated and light on the newest features, making the Volvo the winner.
