The 2018 Volvo S60 is a fuel-efficient sedan that doesn’t miss a beat. While it is helpful to compare it to similar cars in its class while shopping, such as the 2018 Mazda6, you’ll find that the Volvo S60 comes out on top in terms of performance and features. At Fields Volvo Cars of Daytona Beach, we highlight the major differences between these two impressive vehicles.


The 2018 Volvo S60 at our FL Volvo dealership comes in three different trims and four configurations. The 2.0-liter I-4 engine puts out 240 horsepower, and the transmission is an eight-speed automatic. The trims come in either all-wheel drive or front-wheel drive, depending on your preference. Whether you’re driving around town or taking a road trip, you’ll experience an efficient ride with 29 mpg combined.

The 2018 Mazda6 comes in five trims and features a standard 2.5-liter I-4 engine, but its configuration only delivers 187 horsepower. Even though it offers a second engine choice, its horsepower taps out at 250. The Volvo S60 car’s top horsepower is a steady 302. Its fuel efficiency falls short when compared to the S60 as well, as it only reaches a top 27 mpg combined.


Both models equip an impressive range of features, such as touchscreens with their respectable infotainment systems. However, the Volvo S60 for sale has the upper hand in multiple areas. Not only does it come standard with a Wi-Fi hotspot, but it also renders a moonroof, leather upholstery, and an eight-way power driver’s seat. The Mazda6, on the other hand, only offers like amenities in top models.
