Volvo XC60 vs. Audi Q5

The Volvo XC60 and Audi Q5 are often put head-to-head when it comes to a compact luxury SUV with plenty of refined design features. Both have unique innovations when it comes to design and lead with a people-first attitude that aims to make your family comfortable on daily commutes. However, the Volvo XC60 certainly succeeds over the Audi in several key areas.

For starters, the Volvo model offers a larger 63.3-cubic-feet of cargo space compared to only 53.1-cubic-feet of space in the Audi Q5. This is enough of a difference to matter, especially when it comes to those loading up the car for a vacation or accommodating a large piece of cargo. The XC60 cargo space takes things a step further by offering rear seats that fold completely flat, which is not an option in the Audi. To top things off, the Volvo XC60 famously offers a plug-in hybrid engine that reaches up to 400-horsepower output. This is not an option with the Audi.

Volvo XC60 vs. BMW X3

The XC60 and X3 are often compared due to their performance-first attitudes, similar stance, and luxury details that grace every model of their trim lineups. However, Volvo still comes out on top when compared to the BMW X3. Starting with the price point, you'll find a much lower starting price than that of the BMW, for equivalent standard features.

Once again, the Volvo XC60 graces families with a spacious cargo area that trumps the BMW cargo area by several feet whether the seat is up or down. In general, you'll find more front and rear legroom and shoulder room in the Volvo than in the BMW despite being a very similar size. When it comes to power, the standard engine configuration of the Volvo XC60 provides drivers with 250-horsepower compared to the BMW model's 248-horsepower. That may not seem like a huge difference, but looking at the 400-horsepower possible from the plug-in hybrid XC60 compared to the maximum 382-horsepower from the BWM, that rev has its profound benefits.

Volvo XC60 vs. Mercedes-Benz GLC

The XC60 nad the GLC has perhaps the most distinctly different styling. Both remain in the small SUV segment, but the Mercedes-Benz features a more bulbous exterior fascia and a variety of different interior materials that stray from the expected when it comes to a family SUV. The Volvo XC60, once again, goes above and beyond with its cargo area. This time, by almost 10-feet, as the Mercedes-Benz only offers 19.4-cubic-feet compared to 30.2-cubic-feet.

You'll also find benefits in the Volvo in the realm of acceleration times, standard safety and driver's assistance features, and other convenience options that you simply won't find in the Mercedes-Benz lineup.
