2016 Volvo XC60 vs. 2016 BMW X4 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Volvo XC60 than in the BMW X4. The BMW X4 offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Volvo XC60, offering the driver and front passenger a bit more room and comfort.

Convenience
The Volvo XC60 requires fewer stops at the gas station than the BMW X4, 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Volvo XC60 will have less of an impact on your bank account than the BMW X4. 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 Volvo XC60 and the BMW X4 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Volvo XC60 is about the same width as the BMW X4. When looking at overall length, the Volvo XC60 takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the BMW X4.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque engine, the Volvo XC60 doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the BMW X4.

Handling
The Volvo XC60 has the same turning radius as the BMW X4, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

Performance
If you've got something you need to pull, the Volvo XC60 will do just as well as the BMW X4, since they have about the same towing capacity. When it comes to horsepower, the Volvo XC60 has a lot less horsepower than the BMW X4.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Volvo XC60 and the BMW X4. With the Volvo XC60, you'll be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the BMW X4.

Warranty
The Volvo XC60 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the BMW X4.
