Differences: Size

The 2021 Volvo S60 is a compact sports sedan, whereas the 2021 Volvo S90 is a full-size executive sedan.

You'll find 35.2" of rear seat legroom in the Volvo S60 and 11.6 cubic feet of trunk space. Or, choose the Volvo S90 and you'll get 40.4" of rear seat legroom and 13.5 cubic feet of cargo volume in the trunk.

You may find the 2021 Volvo S60 easier to park, since it's a full 13" shorter than the 2021 Volvo S90 in total overall length.

2021 Volvo S60 vs 2021 Volvo S90 Exterior

Differences: Standard Features

The larger Volvo S90 comes with a greater price tag, but it also comes with superior standard features for further improved style and comfort. For instance, genuine leather upholstery is available on the 2021 Volvo S60 as an upgrade, but it comes standard on every 2021 Volvo S90. You also get built-in navigation on the Volvo S90 as standard equipment, a feature that requires an upgrade on the S60.

And since it's a larger vehicle, the 2021 Volvo S90 also comes standard with front and rear parking sensors, so it's easy to slip into smaller city parking spots. Yet again, that's a feature you can also have on the 2021 Volvo S60, but it's not standard on entry-level models.

Differences: Performance

The 2021 Volvo S60 comes standard with the T5 powertrain that delivers 250 horsepower from its standard, turbocharged engine. It gets outstanding fuel economy, too. Meanwhile, the 2021 Volvo S90 comes standard with the T6 engine that's both turbocharged and supercharged for 316 horsepower! You can also get the T6 engine in the Volvo S60, but it'll cost you more as an upgrade. And for the best performance with plug-in hybrid advantages, both models can be equipped with the T8 plug-in hybrid engine making a total of 400 horsepower!

And while you can get all-wheel drive as an available upgrade on the 2021 Volvo S60, every 2021 Volvo S90 comes standard with all-wheel drive for the best handling, grip and control, even in slippery conditions.

2021 Volvo S60 vs 2021 Volvo S90 Features

Standard features on both models include Collision Mitigation Support, Lane Keeping Aid and Blind Spot Information System with Cross Traffic Alert. But of course there's so much more to the safety of a modern Volvo, so come experience it all in-person during your test drive.
