Talking Cars 207: BMW 3 Series vs. Volvo S60

Consumer Reports has no financial relationship with advertisers on this site.

Main theme: BMW 3 Series vs. Volvo S60

The BMW 3 Series and Volvo S60 are luxury compact sports sedans that match up closely on paper. But there’s more to a car than just its specifications. That’s why we put every car, SUV, and truck we buy through an intense battery of tests. And we learned a lot about these sedans by also living with them. Our panel discusses why people buy luxury compact sports sedans, how these two match up, and which one they would buy with their own money.
