2018 Volkswagen Golf SportWagen vs 2018 Volvo V60

Volvo is considered a luxury brand, although its catalog doesn't reach anywhere near the expensive heights of some models in brands such as BMW or Mercedes-Benz. Therefore, Volvo attempts to offer the same luxury experience at a more affordable price.

Seeing as the price gap between these models isn't nearly as big as other luxury brands, we decided to test out the design and specs of one of our VW models against a Volvo to see how it fared. That's why today, we're taking a look at the 2018 Volkswagen Golf SportWagen to see how it compares against the 2018 Volvo V60, a vehicle that displays a nearly identical wagon build to that of the SportWagen.
