Let's Take a Closer Look at the New XC40 and the Q3!

Compact crossovers offer the capabilities of a larger SUV, but the convenience and practicality of a  smaller vehicle. The new 2020 Volvo XC40 and the Audi Q3 are two popular luxury crossovers, but it's easy to see that the XC40 simply surpasses the Q3 in nearly every category. We have created a side-by-side comparison to make your buying decision easy. 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 XC40 below, and come see us today to take a test drive!


The base model 2020 Volvo XC40 offers all wheel drive and gets up to an impressive 33 MPG, which completely outdoes the Q3 at 27 MPG. Upgrade your ride to the T5 and you will get all-wheel drive as well as much more power behind the wheel - up to 248 horsepower to be exact. The Q3 can only get up to 228 horsepower. The XC40 definitely outperforms the Q3.

Interior Comfort and Style

It's all about enjoying the ride - and the XC40 takes comfort very seriously. With large cargo space and  legroom, the XC40 provides a comfortable ride for all passengers. While the Audi's roofline slopes  downward towards the back, the rear part of the cabin could feel a bit cramped for taller passengers.  The XC40 also offers more standard state-of-the-art technology features than the Q3. From enjoying the Sirius XM satellite radio to adjusting the climate controls using voice commands, these standard features on the XC40 are only available as upgrades on the Q3. The Volvo XC40 also allows you to adjust your  power steering settings to reflect your driving style, while the Q3 does not.

Safety and Technology

While they have not yet been crash tested for 2020, both vehicles were named a Top Safety Pick+ by IIHS in 2019. However, Volvo's legendary safety standards and ratings is incomparable and they only get more impressive in the 2020 model. The XC40 offers many standard safety features that go the extra mile to help keep you and your passengers protected at all times. From helping to keep you from drifting out of your lane to recognizing traffic signs to help keep you aware of speed limits and other road restrictions, the XC40 is smarter and more safety-minded than the Q3. The XC40 can give you a peace of mind that the Q3 simply cannot.
