The Volvo XC60 Takes on the Competition

If you're in the market for a five-passenger luxury crossover, the Volvo XC60 should be at the top of your list. It perfectly combines the latest advances in automotive technology with the legendary Volvo quality and engineering, to create an SUV that's eye-catching, fun to drive, and safe.

Which SUV is Right For You?

Here in the Allentown, PA and Bethlehem, PA area, our customers have a lot of choices available to them when shopping for a luxury crossover. If you're considering a Volvo XC60, and other popular models are vying for your attention, let us help. We've put together this side-by-side comparison of our XC60 and two competing models, to illustrate for you what makes this SUV such a great choice for drivers in Emmaus, PA, and beyond.

The Volvo XC60 vs. the BMW X5

  • Size. Both SUVs come with standard seating for five people in two rows, while the BMW X5 does offer an optional third row that the Volvo doesn't have. But, don't mistake that to mean the BMW is more spacious than the Volvo, because the added third row means a major sacrifice in terms of space and cargo storage. Both models are nearly the same length, and both have around 29 cubic feet of cargo room. However, if you squeeze a third row into the BMW, you get a much smaller cargo hold and a third row that's cramped with legroom that's only suited for small children.
  • Passenger space. The Volvo XC60 may be similar in size to the BMW, but it offers a more spacious and comfortable ride. In fact, the Volvo has more legroom and shoulder room than the BMW, in both the front and backseats.
  • Budget. Both luxury models offer an entry-level trim that's fully-equipped and luxurious. But, the Volvo offers all the features and comfort you want for less money. The entry-level XC60 starts at around $40,000, while the base model BMW goes for around $42,000.

The Volvo XC60 vs. the Audi Q3

  • Cargo room. The Volvo XC60 is slightly larger than the Audi Q3 overall. Both seat five people, but the Volvo offers a more spacious interior than the Audi, especially in terms of cargo storage. In fact, the XC60 can accommodate up to 29.7 cubic feet of cargo, while the Audi only holds a maximum of 16.7 cubic feet.
  • Standard safety features. The Volvo XC60 comes standard with an extensive and comprehensive suite of safety features, which includes such innovative advancements as pedestrian and large animal detection, and a driver attention alert system. The Audi Q3, meanwhile, offers standard parking sensors, but not much else in terms of safety technologies.
  • Power and options. The Volvo XC60 gives drivers three engine and several trim configuration options to choose from, while the Audi Q3 is only available with a single powertrain and in two trims. Plus, all three Volvo engines are more powerful and offer more oomph to drivers than the one Q3 engine.
