Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Volvo XC60 than in the BMW X4, due to its greater head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the BMW X4 and the Volvo XC60.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the BMW X4 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). The BMW X4 is somewhat more expensive than the Volvo XC60. 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 X4 and the Volvo XC60 have similar Destination Charges.

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

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

Handling
The BMW X4 has a larger turning radius than the Volvo XC60, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the BMW X4 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 X4 and the Volvo XC60.

Warranty
