Competitive Comparison The Volvo XC60

 

Let's take a closer look at the Volvo XC60 and the BMW X3!

BMW may say it is the "Ultimate Driving Machine," but the Volvo is bests the X3 at every turn. Whether it's the comfort level of the ride or power and performance, there is a reason the XC60 has been named Car of the Year and North American Utility Vehicle of the Year in years past. Gerald Jones Volvo in Augusta, Georgia, has years of experience serving the greater CSRA and looks forward to helping you find your perfect car. Read more about the XC60 below, and come see us today to take a test drive!

Performance

While both vehicles offer similar levels of standard horsepower, the XC60 offers an available plug-in hybrid powertrain. Both vehicles come with two engine types. The XC60 offers a T5 and a T8 engine. The T5 generates up to 248 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque, while the T8 can turn out a whopping 400 horsepower and gets an impressive 59 MPG due to its electric motors. Compare that to the BMW's M40i engine's 355 horsepower and it's easy to see why car buyers continually choose Volvo. 

Interior Comfort and Style

Volvo knows comfort is key and it shows in the XC60. With high-grade materials lining every inch and a panoramic moonroof giving it an airy and open feel, you may never want to leave. Make it yours by upgrading from the base synthetic leather to Nappa leather, matte driftwood inlays, or aluminum trim options. The ample cargo space is perfect for family weekend getaways, as it offers up to 63.3 cubic feet  of storage space, which is more than the X3. The XC60 also offers nearly 2 more inches of legroom than the X3 in both the back and front seats.

Safety and Technology

The award-winning XC60 has been recognized again and again for its legendary safety features. Among these features are advanced systems that can help keep you on the road and in the correct lane. One of the most notable is the traffic sign recognition which helps protect you and your passengers by keeping an eye on speed limits and other warnings. The X3 simply cannot compete. The X3 also leaves a vast majority of smartphone users on the sidelines, as it only offers Apple CarPlay, which only works with iPhones. The XC60's infotainment interface offers Apple CarPlay, Andriod Auto, as wells as a 10-speaker sound system, so the most people can get the most out of the ride.
