Compare: The 2018 Volvo XC60 vs. the 2018 BMW X3

The 2018 Volvo XC60 is one of the most impressive luxury compact SUVs on the market and we are proud to sell it at Faulkner Volvo Cars Trevose. SUVs are some of the most popular vehicles on the market right now, so there is plenty of competition for the XC60. We want you to consider all of your options, so let's take a look at how well the XC60 compares with one of its classmates, the 2018 BMW X3.


Size-wise, the two vehicles are almost identical, but when you get into the interior of the XC60, it's clear that it uses its space a little more efficiently. The well-designed cabin gives you some extra space to stretch out, but you also get some more stylish cues that will have you feeling comfortable and confident like standard leather seats. You get the standard moonroof to help let some natural light into your cabin, while the X3 needs a pricey upgrade for that feature.


Both vehicles have a long list of standard and available tech features, especially luxury features like a touchscreen and smart device integration. The XC60 brings out some big guns though with a standard WiFi hotspot, satellite radio, remote engine start, and a power driver seat with lumbar support, none of which are offered standard on the BMW X3 near Bensalem.


Volvo vehicles are well-known for their commitment to safety and the XC60 keeps this tradition going. Aside from the strong engineering and comprehensive airbag system, the XC60 gives you some extra tech that the X3 doesn't offer like the helpful Lane Departure Warning. The Volvo City Safety also gives you unparalleled capabilities to detect vehicles, cyclists, and more, making it perfect for urban driving near Philadelphia.

Our Decision

We think that the XC60 easily beats out the X3, but if you need some extra convincing, stop by our Trevose Volvo dealership today and experience the XC60 near Langhorne firsthand.
