The 2021 Volvo S60 has been given high rankings among luxury small cars. This is because of its posh interior and masculine exterior that are sure to attracts car buyers out there. Also adding to what it offers is a long list of reliable standard technologies.

For the 2021 Volkswagen Arteon, this ride also uses a user-friendly infotainment system with the addition of wireless smartphone integration to its list of offerings. This also promises a huge space to accommodate cargo inside.

Design & Style

The 2021 Volvo S60 gives families the option to go out on a weekend adventure without thinking much of the space left for them to carry their bags and other belongings. Cabin space is more than enough, and so is the cargo area. Adding to what it has inside is that lovely and comfortable seating arrangement for five, with generous seating space at the front and back. Those soft touch surfaces give it an elegance that makes it worthy of becoming a luxury vehicle.

When looking at the 2021 Arteon, there is not really much to want in it, except for that cavernous cargo area. There may be comfortable seats inside, but they are not as accommodating as the one found in the S60. The sloping roofline definitely disappoints taller passengers. While the manufacturer tried to make the cabin feel upscale, there is still more improvement needed for it to surpass that of the Volvo.

Technology & Safety

The 2021 Volvo S60 uses a nine-inch easy-to-use touch screen. This interface is given physical buttons for easier access to the entire infotainment system. Additionally, it has a 12.3-inch digital cluster display, two USB ports, remote start, 10 speakers, panoramic sunroof, dual-zone automatic climate control, and satellite radio. This one flawlessly integrates both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. As promised, there is a long list of reliable safety features, among them are blind spot monitoring, forward collision warning, lane keep assist, lane departure warning, oncoming collision mitigation, road departure mitigation, and rear cross traffic alert.

There is a 12.3-inch digital display in the Arteon, which makes it equal at least with that of the S60 in this department. The setup is supported by an eight-inch touch screen. Other features included are two USB ports, Bluetooth, eight speakers, navigation, proximity keyless entry, tri-zone automatic climate control, and push-button start. There are just a few driver aids standard to the ride and these are rear cross traffic alert, blind spot monitoring, pedestrian detection, and forward collision warning.


The base engine for the 2021 Volvo S60 allows it to reach up to 250 horsepower in terms of results. There are other engine variations that release either 316 or 400 horsepower. In the case of the Arteon, expect only one engine whose results reach up to 268 horsepower.

The Bottom Line

The 2021 Volvo S60 is deserving of the praise that it gets from car buyers out there. After all, it has been equipped with the right technologies, and has an elegant cabin that makes it stand out among the rest of its competitors, the 2021 Volkswagen Arteon included.
