Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the BMW X5 than in the Volvo XC90. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the BMW X5 and the Volvo XC90.

Convenience
Due to the larger tank size and better fuel economy of the BMW X5, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Volvo XC90.

Cost

Due to its much higher torque, the BMW X5 does a much better job of transmitting its engine's horsepower to its wheels than the Volvo XC90.
