2018 BMW X5 vs. 2018 Volvo XC90 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The BMW X5 offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Volvo XC90, with comparable head- and legroom. The BMW X5 offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Volvo XC90, making it a little more comfortable for the driver and front passenger.

Convenience
The BMW X5 requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Volvo XC90, making it more convenient to drive.

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). The BMW X5 is somewhat more expensive than the Volvo XC90. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. Both the BMW X5 and the Volvo XC90 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the BMW X5 is much slimmer than the Volvo XC90, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. When looking at overall length, the BMW X5 takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Volvo XC90.

Drivetrain
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.

Handling
The BMW X5 has a larger turning radius than the Volvo XC90, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
With the BMW X5, you'll be able to pull heavier loads than the Volvo XC90. In terms of horsepower, it's a virtual tie between the BMW X5 and the Volvo XC90.

Utility
The BMW X5 offers greater seating capacity than the Volvo XC90, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. The BMW X5 has less cargo space than the Volvo XC90, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The BMW X5 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Volvo XC90.
