Serving Chamblee, GA

Are you wondering which compact executive sedan delivers the complete package you are looking for in your next car? The Volvo S60 boasts two decades of history, delighting its drivers with an all-around great experience. The Lexus IS, which has also been available for a few decades, is in the S60’s automotive class. Which of these small sedans has the features, style, and abilities to stand up to your high expectations?


These are both five-passenger sedans that are available with a few powertrain options. The 2020 Volvo S60 offers an explicitly exceptional fuel economy while also producing up to 316 horsepower. At the same time, it accelerates up to 60 miles per hour in 5.3 seconds. In comparison, the 2020 Lexus IS gives you 241 horsepower with its base-level powertrain. Its fuel economy rating is slightly below the S60’s rating.


The differences between the 2020 Volvo S60 and the 2020 Lexus IS extend to their style. The S60 is both contemporary and sleek. Its power and luxury are expressed from end to end with T-shaped LED headlights mounted on their side, a signature Volvo grille, and long, angled definition lines running down the sides. The IS from Lexus has a swooping hood and two sets of aggressive headlights. The grille spans down to the bottom of the front end.


While the S60’s exterior and performance capabilities are notably athletic, the interior design is sophisticated. Its high-level materials are combined with a tall digital display screen flanked by chrome-accented air vents. This vehicle includes everything from a Bowers & Wilkins sound system to climate-controlled seats, a panoramic moonroof, and more. In the 2020 Lexus IS, the center stack is layered, and each layer has a different angle and extension. The IS’s interior features include an analog clock, a push-button ignition, a navigation system, and a few other items.
