Q. Which car is better in performance C-Class or Volvo S60?
  • The Volvo S60 and Mercedes C class has been a close rival. The Volvo has already got their name on top when it comes to the safety, built quality and engine refinement. The Mercedes, on the other hand, are considered as somewhere near to be the symbol for designing the most luxurious, comfortable and feature loaded vehicles. The Swedian and German sedans when taking head to head with astonishing figures. The Mercedes is available in 3 petrol powered variants and 3 diesel powered varients. The Volvo, on the other hand, is available 2 diesel variants and 1 petrol variant. The performance differs for every engine option.
  • Both cars are better bt s60 is slightly more than c class(not c 63 amg) it is depends upon your availability of services in your city. Cost of s60 also expensive than c class....I hope u will understand
