2019 Audi A5 vs. 2019 Volvo S60

When it comes to car safety and technology, nothing ever comes close to the reputation of both the Audi and Volvo brands. For this year, they have released refreshed versions of their popular vehicles. The 2019 Audi A5 and the 2019 Volvo S60 are ready to set the trend in luxury cars with their innovative features and superb performance. Let us find out which car will emerge superior over the other with this comparison.

Design & Style

The exterior design of the new A5 is wider with horizontal design lines to further accentuate its length. The power dome hood and brilliant LED headlights gave it a sportier style. There is an option for a Black Optic package where brilliant black design elements are added. The standard cabin styling is impressive with comfortable leather seats and available natural gray oak wood inlays.

The S60 features almost the same qualities as the S90 on its exterior. The S60 is only shorter, sinuous, and scalloped sideways to give it a fit and athletic look. For its interior, Volvo made the S60 look delicate with its low-key details like a light driftwood trim and leather upholstery.

Technology & Safety

As far as technology goes, the A5 has an infotainment display that is fit for a pilot. They call the infotainment system as the virtual cockpit where navigation and entertainment information can be accessed. The latest innovations are also added for the driver assistance features. Its driver aids are made to keep the driver alert for any unpredictable shifts while driving.

The S60 also has a series of impressive technology for its audio and navigation systems. There are a lot of options to upgrade the standard features. The driver aids are also plenty but the Pilot Assist mode and lane-keeping assist are not as smooth compared to its competition.


The 248 hp engine of the A5 is engineered to offer impressive performance. As expected, its drivability is refined and the firm seats will allow many hours of comfortable road trips. The Quattro all-wheel-drive system helps in providing dynamic handling. It makes the car stable even while cornering at high speeds.

The S60 delivers 250 hp from its 2.0-liter engine. This power requires minimal effort from the driver as the car is consistently responsive in any driving condition.

The Bottom Line

Both of these cars deliver strong performance. They also have their own perks in terms of technology and safety features. The 2019 Audi A5 is more superior, however, because the company did not skimp on its styling. While the 2019 Volvo S60 may look plain and unassuming, the A5 looks posh from its exterior down to its cabin. Design and style are crucial with any luxury vehicle and the new A5 certainly looks and feels luxurious compared to the S60.
