The 2021 Volvo V60 boasts a roomy interior and a comfortable ride.  Having shifted to the SPA platform, it now catches up to its competitors in safety and technology. Its high-end cabin material makes it a sleek, sporty, and elegant wagon, unlike its predecessors.

The 2021 Chevrolet Impala is also quite spacious and offers a quiet and smooth ride, however, the cheap interior surfaces are a downside to this model. This Chevy model comes with a capable engine and offers a serene ride, but for advanced safety features, you will need to pick its higher trims. It gets a low safety rating for this reason.

Design & Style

The Chevy Impala has plenty of room in its interior and has comfortable seating in both front and rear rows. What it lacks is the side support in its seats. Five occupants can easily accommodate in this Chevy model. The cabin has a fine finish, but the presence of some hard plastics could bother some riders. Use of subpar materials in its interior design can diminish its overall appeal.

The Volvo V60 is also a 5-seater and continues with Volvo's tradition of ensuring proper comfort and a sleek cabin design in its cars. Taller adults can also ride comfortably in the back seats and stretch properly. Though the driver seat is supportive when driving at higher speeds, you can opt from the optional sport seats for better side bolstering and extra support. The interior is packed with luxurious amenities that are missing in its rival. Buyers often prefer to replace leather for quirky plaid cloth upholstery. It suits the car well.

Technology & Safety

The 2021 Chevrolet Impala comes with an 8-inch touch screen and includes connectivity features like Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, a Wi-Fi hotspot, 3 USB ports, Bluetooth, etc. It has an 11-speaker Bose premium stereo. Its infotainment system doesn't let you down and has plenty of standard features. Its safety features, on the other hand, are mediocre. Many advanced features are not a part of this model, especially in its lower trim levels.

The V60 is equipped with Volvo's Sensus infotainment system. It has a 9-inch touch screen that is larger than its rival's. It also has more speakers in both its Harman Kardon premium stereo and Bowers & Wilkins premium stereo system. Standard tools for mobile integration are also present in this model. Dual zone auto climate control and a panoramic sunroof come standard with this Volvo.

Volvo V60 is rich in standard safety features such as lane keep assist, auto emergency braking, departure mitigation, forward collision warning, and so on.


Chevy Impala has done away with a number of trim options leaving behind only two choices, each having a V6 engine paired with a 6-speed transmission. The transmission is smooth but some critics claim that it's not as refined as its rivals. The engine offers adequate power to go around the city.

The V60 comes with two powertrains. The standard trim boasts a turbocharged 2.0 liter four-cylinder engine that provides 250 hp. It's common in most other Volvo models too. The base trim is quite capable and delivers a fine acceleration in most terrains.

The Bottom Line

While the 2021 Chevy Impala surpasses most other rivals in terms of a roomy interior and a convenient ride, competitors like Volvo V60 beats it in the use of high-grade cabin material, fuel economy, while also offering comfortable seating options. Buyers looking for a blend of creature comfort and an efficient performance should check out the 2021 Volvo V60.
