2021 Volvo XC60 vs 2021 BMW X3 Comparison in Torrance, CA

The award-winning Volvo XC60 has earned praise for its handsome design, premium features, advanced safety, and powerful performance. Even popular competitors from respected brands like BMW can't quite give you the value of a brand-new 2021 Volvo XC60. Still, you shouldn't just take our word for it. Compare both models side-by-side below! We'll show you exactly what makes the 2021 Volvo XC60 a better choice for your family and your budget than the 2021 BMW X3. Then, head to Volvo Cars South Bay to take your test drive and experience all these benefits firsthand.

Volvo XC60 vs. BMW X3 Design Comparison

Both these compact SUV models feature almost identical cargo volume -- however, with a more spacious passenger cabin, the 2021 Volvo XC60 gives you an extra 1.5" of rear seat legroom compared to the 2021 BMW X3. That makes it more comfortable for the whole family, especially on longer journeys. A panoramic moonroof also comes standard on the Volvo XC60, a feature that'll cost you extra on the 2021 BMW X3 as an option. You even get a standard hands-free power tailgate on the Volvo XC60 that opens with a gesture of your foot under the rear bumper when the proximity key is detected. That, too, is an added-cost option on the BMW X3.

Volvo XC60 vs. BMW X3 Features Comparison

Premium materials and modern features make a luxury SUV worth the investment -- and you find higher-quality materials as standard on the 2021 Volvo XC60. It features genuine leather upholstery as standard, unlike the synthetic leather in the 2021 BMW X3. The Volvo XC60 also comes with power-adjustable lumbar support, exterior welcome lighting and a widescreen digital instrument cluster for a modern presentation. None of this can be found on the entry-level 2021 BMW X3 unless you pay more to upgrade.

Volvo XC60 vs. BMW X3 Performance Comparison

The standard engines under the hood of these SUVs are almost identical: Both models provide exactly 258 lb-ft of torque and the 2021 BMW X3 generates 248 horsepower where the 2021 Volvo XC60 makes 250.

However, if you're looking for a modern, efficient hybrid with luxury features and powerful performance, the 2021 Volvo XC60 is a better choice. When you upgrade to the 2021 Volvo XC60 Recharge with the T8 plug-in hybrid powertrain, you'll have 400 horsepower and 472 lb-ft of torque. It's among the most powerful hybrid SUVs on the market today! The plug-in hybrid 2021 BMW X3 xDrive30e only generates 288 horsepower and 310 lb-ft of torque.

Volvo XC60 vs. BMW X3 Safety Comparison

With more standard driver assist technology on the 2021 Volvo XC60, you won't have to spend more to get the features your family demands. Every 2021 Volvo XC60 is protected by features like lane keeping aid with steering support and the BLIS™ Blind Spot Information System with rear cross-traffic alert and auto-brake. None of this technology is standard on the already-more-expensive 2021 BMW X3.
