If you are torn between the 2022 Volvo S60 and the 2022 Tesla Model Y, you are in luck as we are going to compare these two cars and give you a verdict on which one is the best. Of course, both vehicles have a lot to offer any driver, but one of these has an edge over the other one. Let us look at both and tell you which should be in your garage this year.

Design & Style

With the 2022 Volvo S60, you get a fairly stretched out car, in fact one of the longest chassis in its category. This translates to plenty of head and legroom in the vehicle, as well as ample luggage space. The front dashboard has also been retouched for 2022, which means you get more functionality in an ergonomic dashboard. The S60 also comes with new LED headlights, which further add to its exterior appeal. With the Model Y, it features a minimalist design inside, which may not be to everyone's taste. Space is problematic, especially in the rear seat. As far as practicality and functionality are concerned, the 2022 S60 is a far better vehicle.

Technology & Safety

With the 2022 S60, drivers get a host of tech features such as automatic braking system, blind spot monitoring and much more. The S60 features a superb infotainment system as well as charging pads for smartphones. Many other features are also available as options, giving S60 buyers the option to customize their vehicles as they wish. With the 2022 Tesla Model Y, buyers get many tech features as well, given that this is a car with futuristic leanings. In this respect, the two cars have equally impressive tech features.


For 2022, Volvo has reduced the total weight of the car, which in turn translates to more power and speed. The 2022 S60 comes with a 2-liter turbocharged VVTI engine that delivers both power and fuel economy. This means drivers of the S60 get the best of both worlds. When it comes to the Tesla Model Y, drivers get a pretty preppy electric engine that can get the model Y from naught to sixty in just four seconds. While this is impressive, the SUV shape of the 2022 Model Y means that the vehicle is unstable around corners and the handling could be better.

The Bottom Line

Buyers of the 2022 Volvo S60 and the 2022 Tesla Model Y both get cars that are pretty futuristic. The difference however is in the details. While the 2022 Model Y is impressive, the 2022 Volvo S60 is better in almost every respect. It comes with a pretty impressive array of tech, offers a top-quality ride, and fuel consumption is pretty good. This is what it makes a lot more sense to get the Volvo S60 rather than the Tesla Model Y
