2016 BMW X3 vs. 2015 Volvo XC60 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The BMW X3 offers a bit more room for passengers in the back seat than the Volvo XC60. The BMW X3 offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Volvo XC60, making it a little more comfortable for the driver and front passenger.

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). Whether you pick the BMW X3 or the Volvo XC60, it's going to cost you about the same. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The BMW X3 will cost more in terms of transportation costs than the Volvo XC60.

Dimensions
The BMW X3 is about the same width as the Volvo XC60. When looking at overall length, the BMW X3 takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Volvo XC60.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the BMW X3 transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Volvo XC60.

Handling
The BMW X3 has the same turning radius as the Volvo XC60, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the BMW X3 has a lot less horsepower than the Volvo XC60.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the BMW X3 and the Volvo XC60. The BMW X3 has less cargo space than the Volvo XC60, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The BMW X3 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Volvo XC60.
