Compare the Volvo S60 to the Audi A4 in Marietta, Atlanta Area

After seeing that the S60 has many major advantages to the 3 Series, we want to take it against the Audi A4. Audi has priced its A4 higher than the S60, and after seeing the features, we are still convinced the Volvo is a better choice.

The A4 puts out between 190 and 252 horsepower, which are impressive numbers, but aren't enough to keep up with the S60. For gas mileage, the Audi A4 brings 24 miles per gallon in the city and 33 on the highway while the S60 can provide 25 in the city and 36 on the highway. While you might not think that 1 mile per gallon is much, it adds up over the lifetime of your vehicle. The Audi comes standard as a front-wheel drive with the Audi quattro system as an all-wheel drive option as well.

The Audi has more safety features than the 3 Series, but still does not stack up to the S60. Volvo is known for having some of the safest vehicles on the market, which gives them a lead in this category from the start. The A4 brings Rear cross traffic assist, a top view camera, active lane assist, and Audi pre sense.

As for safety, the S60 comes standard with more features, but the 3 Series has many package options that offer a variety of features.
