2018 BMW X3 vs. 2018 Volvo XC60 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The BMW X3 offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Volvo XC60, with comparable head- and legroom. The BMW X3 will be popular with taller drivers and passengers in the front seat, due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Volvo XC60.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the BMW X3 as you will with the Volvo XC60, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a tank of gas.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). When looking only at MSRP, the BMW X3 will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Volvo XC60.

Drivetrain
With similar torque, the BMW X3 and the Volvo XC60 are about even in transmitting their respective horsepower to the wheels.

Handling
The BMW X3 has a larger turning radius than the Volvo XC60, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.
