If you want to own a luxury SUV and have searched around for one, then you may have come across two available versions of this vehicle: the 2020 Volvo XC60 and the 2020 Audi Q5. Here's why the 2020 Volvo XC60 stands out.

Available in four trims, the 2020 Volvo XC60 is a comfortable and powerful luxury SUV that doesn't hold back in safety and technology. You can feel secure in the 2020 Volvo XC60 thanks to its wide array of safety and technology systems. Anything can happen on the road, but the 2020 Volvo XC60 was strategically designed with safety in mind.

Volvo cars are designed to protect, and this is no different for the Volvo XC60 SUV. With seating for five, this Volvo SUV is packed with safety features to help ensure that everyone in your vehicle can feel secure and comfortable on the road.

City Safety is one of the many safety features in the Volvo XC60. This safety system works by using a camera and radar technology to identify obstacles in your way. This system then sends you an alert when collision is potentially imminent, and if you don't react in time, it will automatically apply your vehicle's brakes to avoid or minimize the collision. This City Safety system also includes steering support so that you can be navigated around obstacles and potential collisions effortlessly.

Run-off road Mitigation is another safety feature present in the Volvo XC60. This safety technology works to prevent your vehicle from being steered off the road. If this system detects your vehicle going off the road unintentionally, it will then provide steering and brake support to guide your car back onto the road safely.

If your vehicle does manage to leave the road despite this safety system, Run-off road Mitigation will then focus its attention on minimizing your chances of serious injuries. It will do this by automatically tightening your seatbelts and by absorbing as much of the impact energy as it can through your car's front seat frames. These frames are designed to cushion vertical impacts.

Other technology available in the 2020 Volvo XC60 include Pilot Assist and Park Assist Pilot. Pilot Assist helps you as you drive on the highway. It can help you keep a safe distance from other vehicles and help you prevent a collision even if you're travelling at speeds up to 80 miles per hour. Park Assist Pilot helps you park using a camera that allows you to a 360-degree view around your car.

Moving on to the 2020 Audi Q5, this is also a great vehicle if you want an SUV that offers some helpful safety and technology features. The 2020 Audi Q5 is comparable to the 2020 Volvo XC60 in its size and what it has to offer, but there are some areas in which the Volvo XC60 has an edge over the Audi Q5.


Like the Volvo XC60, the Audi Q5 offers safety systems to help keep you and your passengers safe on the road. Collision avoidance assist, Audi pre-sense, and Rear cross traffic assist, are all technology features available in the Audi Q5. These are great safety systems that are quite comparable to what the Volvo XC60 offer, but they do have some shortfalls in comparison to the systems available in the Volvo XC60.

In the Audi Q5, Run-off road Mitigation assistance isn't available. Also, in the Audi Q5, its pre-sense City system only works at speeds up to 52 miles per hour and only applies brakes up to speeds under 25 miles per hour. In comparison, the Pilot Assist system in the Volvo XC60 works at speeds up to 80 miles per hour.

Like the Volvo XC60, the Audi Q5 offers parking assistance with Park Assist.

Overall, both the Volvo XC60 and Audi Q5 are great vehicles with a lot to offer. Schedule a test drive at Principle Volvo of San Antonio near San Antonio today.
