Compare The Volvo XC60 SUV

Volvo XC60 vs. the Competition

With its harmonious blend of utility, refinement, performance, and safety, the Volvo XC60 delivers a quintessential luxury crossover experience. Its versatile interior provides spacious accommodations for both passengers and cargo, plus advanced technology that seamlessly blends with Volvo's signature, minimalist-inspired, Scandinavian design and craftsmanship. The Volvo XC60's upscale cabin and practical compact dimension make it a compelling option for discerning Pennsylvania families, commuters, and travelers, alike, seeking crossover utility without sacrificing luxury or drivability.

As a leader in its class, the XC60 naturally draws competitive comparisons, particularly the Audi Q5, BMW X3, and Jeep Grand Cherokee. Each model has its strengths, but closer inspection highlights the XC60's more complete experience. Here's a quick look at what makes the Volvo XC60 stand out versus its competitors.

Volvo XC60 vs. BMW X3

  • Safety Features: The Volvo XC60 includes many advanced driver aids as standard equipment, including collision avoidance, lane-keeping assist, run-off road mitigation, oncoming ane mitigation, road sign detection, and automatic high beams. You can get these on the X3, but only by adding an optional package.

  • Infotainment: The XC60 comes standard with a 9-inch Sensus touchscreen infotainment system, plus smartphone integration via Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The X3 features a standard 6.5-inch touchscreen and Apple CarPlay, but no Android Auto. Furthermore, CarPlay on the X3 is subscription-based, which means you have to pay yearly to use it.

  • Hybrid Versions: The XC60's available T8 hybrid powerplant is both more efficient (EPA-estimated 26 mpg combined vs. 24 mpg combined) and much more powerful (400 horsepower and 472 pound-feet of torque vs. 288 horsepower and 310 pound-feet of torque) than the X3

  • Cargo Capacity: The XC60's maximum cargo capacity of 63.3 cubic feet bests the 59.4 cubic feet of the X3.

Volvo XC60 vs. Audi Q5

  • Powertrain Selection: The XC60 and Q5 both come standard with a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine. The XC60 offers an additional turbocharged and supercharged variant, plus a 415-horsepower plug-in hybrid. The Q5 has just one additional engine option, a 349-horsepower plug-in hybrid.

  • Safety Features: While the Volvo XC60 comes standard with a suite of advanced driver-assistance technologies, the Q5 includes just automatic emergency braking on the base trim. To get the remaining features, you have to go up to the top trims or add an expensive package.

  • Cargo Space: The XC60's 63.3 cubic feet of maximum cargo capacity dwarfs the Q5's maximum 53.1 cubic feet.

  • Sunroof: All XC60 trims come standard with a panoramic sunroof. The Q5 reserves this feature for the top trims.

Volvo XC60 vs. Jeep Grand Cherokee

  • Safety Features: The XC60 demonstrates Volvo's superior safety commitment with the inclusion of advanced driver aids on all trims. These features are only available on the Grand Cherokee's top-tier Summit trim level.

  • Standard Amenities: The XC60 includes LED headlights, leather upholstery, a panoramic sunroof, power-adjustable front seats, roof rails, and a 10-speaker audio system. All of these features require an extra investment for the Grand Cherokee.

  • Infotainment: The XC60 comes standard with Volvo's 9-inch Sensus touchscreen infotainment system and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration. The Grand Cherokee features Apple and Android integration, but the standard 7-inch touchscreen isn't as advanced, and the maximum upgradeable size is 8.4 inches.

  • Warranty: The XC60 comes with a 4-year/50,000-mile warranty and 24-hour roadside assistance. Plus, Volvo covers scheduled maintenance for the first three years or 36,000 miles. The Grand Cherokee's original warranty is three years or 36,000 miles, and Jeep doesn't cover schedule maintenance.
