Compare the Volvo S60 to the BMW 3 Series and Audi A4

Choosing the right luxury car is about making a statement. You want your new luxury vehicle so say that you not only have a discerning eye for a vehicle that outperforms the competition, but also the one that presents the best value for your dollar.
