Volvo XC60 vs. Audi Q5

  • Both vehicles start with a comparable price tag, but the Volvo XC60 has little trouble separating itself from the Audi Q5 with its engine variety. The duo of 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engines have no trouble outperforming the powertrain offered by the Q5, which produces 220-horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. The base option of the XC60, on the other hand, boasts an output 240-horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque, while the available turbocharged and supercharged version raises the performance of our Volvo SUV to 302-horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque.

  • Not only can Volvo's powertrain options impress its drivers, but they're both able to achieve a greater fuel economy than that of the Audi Q5. With an EPA-estimated 23 city and 31 highway mpg, the XC60's base engine doesn't have to work too hard to beat the 23 city and 27 highway of the Q5.

  • You can expect more than just a greater performance with the Volvo XC60, as each of its engines also achieve more impressive fuel efficiency than what the Q5 is capable of. The latter can only reach an EPA-estimated 23 city and 27 highway mpg, while the base level XC60 22 city and 28 highway mpg. The available plug-in hybrid option jumps to 59 MPGe.

  • Thanks to the opulent leather materials wrap the interior of the XC60, passengers can reside in comfort while owners enjoy the available 67.4 cubic feet of maximum cargo volume. While the Q5 can provide quality seat materials, it can't compete with its 60.4 cubic feet of cargo space.
  

Volvo XC60 vs BMW X3

 
  • The XC60 and X3 come in with a similar price range, but the BMW SUV stands out with a higher cost of entry. Despite being the more budget-friendly option, the XC60's base engine slightly more horsepower and an identical 258 pound-feet of torque as the X3's base option. The available turbocharged and supercharged XC60 engine also beats the X3 with a 302-horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque performance.

  • If you're looking for a more fuel-efficient vehicle, then the available plug-in hybrid XC60 model will serve as a superior choice with an EPA-estimated 59 MPGe. The best that the BMW X3 can achieve is the 22 city and 29 highway of its weaker base engine, while the XC60 excels with a stronger horsepower and fuel economy performance.

  • The best vehicle for friends and family passengers is one that doesn't sacrifice its range of safety features for something less important. The XC60 exceeds expectations with its wealth of standard safety features, which include blind-spot monitoring with cross-traffic alert, rearview camera, rear parking sensors and its City Safety low-speed collision-prevention system. The X3 can't match the attention to detail without accruing the cost of additional packages, on top of the larger starting price.
