When it comes time to buy a new compact luxury SUV, there are many options available. Here at Principle Volvo of San Antonio, we want you to make a decision that not only fits your budget but your lifestyle as well. With so many options on the market, this makes it difficult to choose an option, especially if you are a first-time buyer. But, not to worry, or team is here to assist you in getting the information you need to make a decision that feels best and gives you confidence.

One of the most popular and versatile models we offer is the new 2020 Volvo XC60! The XC60 is as stunning as it is functional.  You'll be equipped with up to 400 horsepower and 59 MPGe! This compact SUV is ready to make your everyday easier.

While we love the XC60, we know that many other models on the market offer similar features. The 2020 Volvo XC60 is very commonly compared to the 2020 BMW X5. From their shapes, security features, and overall design, they do share many similarities, but we feel that the 2020 XC60 is the superior model, offering you much more bang for your buck. We want to create an experience that is as stress-free as possible so we have listed some major differences between the two to help give you a better idea about which one would best fit your lifestyle.

Comparing the Performance

When it comes to power and efficiency, you want to get the most out of your car. Under the hood of the 2020 Volvo XC60, you'll find a powerful 2.0-liter I4 engine with eDrive. This engine pumps out an impressive 250 horsepower. The XC60 is also available with an all-wheel-drive system for maximum traction on slippery roads. The Volvo XC60's powertrain also offers better city and highway fuel economy and all at a lower price than the BMW X5.

The 2020 BMW X5 comes with a standard s/sDrive40i 3.0 turbo six-cylinder engine that produces 335 horsepower. While this slight increase in power might be desirable to some drivers, the additional cost makes the XC60 a more desirable choice.

Overall Design

While it's no secret that both the 2020 Volvo XC60 and 2020 BMW X5 are luxury compact SUVs, the interior of the new XC60 exudes are more simplistic and clutter-less design than the X5. You'll be equipped with a stunning 12.3-inch Driver Display as well as beautiful crystal accents, specifically designed for Volvo. You can find these details on the air vents, control knobs, starter button, and driving mode controller. There is also a standard Panoramic Moonroof that floods the interior with natural light to give you a more soothing and enjoyable ride.

The 2020 BMW X5 also incorporates modern technology like a touchscreen and infotainment system into the dash, but the smoothness and effortless design of the XC60 can't be beaten.

Safety Features

While this is a comparison, both of these models put safety first. The 2020 XC60 incorporates the latest safety features like City Safety and Run-off road Mitigation as standard features, so you don't have to pay extra for peace of mind. These features work together to monitor your surroundings and warn you about unseen objects.

The 2020 BMW X5 comes with many standard Active Driving Assistant features like Active Blind Spot Detection and Lane Departure Warning.

We hope that this comparison has helped you get excited about the 2020 Volvo XC60! We have plenty in stock here at Principle Volvo of San Antonio and invite you to visit our showroom for a test drive!
