Performance

With SUVs being such popular vehicles on the road, it's great to have hybrid options. However, you won't find a hybrid SUV offered by Audi. Volvo offers several hybrid and all-electric models, like the XC90 Plug-In Hybrid SUV, which provides up to 62 MPGe with a T8 Twin Engine. The Volvo XC60 T8 e-AWD Plug-In Hybrid also had an impressive fuel efficiency of up to 59 MPGe. The all-electric Volvo XC40 and C40 Recharge SUVs produce zero emissions and can travel more than 220 miles on a single charge. Recharging to 80-percent can be achieved in as little as 40 minutes.


Reliability

And with the Volvo reputation for being such reliable cars that last, a Certified Pre-Owned Volvo is an excellent option. You can also find Certified Pre-Owned models, but their program doesn't include all the benefits of the Volvo Certified Pre-Owned program, which include:

  • 170-plus point inspection
  • Five-year/unlimited mile warranty back by the Volvo factory
  • 24/7 Volvo On Call Roadside Assistance
  • Free CARFAX Vehicle History Report
  • Optional Volvo Increased Protection plan

Luxury

The Volvo and Audi brands are also known for providing luxurious interiors. Both include a range of similar luxury features, like premium upholstered-leather power-adjustable seats, a driver's digital instrument cluster display, multi-zone climate control, and adaptive drive modes that help them retain their luxury status. Although your experience behind the wheel of a new Volvo will captivate any driver, including long-time Audi fans, our St. Peters area dealership wants to show you why.

You can expect to find luxurious interiors in both the Volvo and Audi brands, including high-quality trims made from genuine wood and durable moldings. Still, Volvo sedans, SUVs, and wagons excel with additional standard features, such as:

  • Panoramic powered sunroof
  • Front seats with backrest massage
  • Heated seats for front and rear passengers
  • Customized door panels and dashboard

Technology

If you select one of the Volvo SUVs, you'll enjoy premium features that include seats with a massage feature and the tablet-style Volvo Sensus Infotainment System. In contrast, Audi doesn't offer massaging seats in their SUV models, and the Audi MMI infotainment system features a touchpad and rotary controls. Volvo and Audi brands both provide Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration, a graphical head-up display, and an upgraded sound system. Meanwhile, Volvo models have an impressive number of standard features and upgrades you won't get in an Audi, including:

  • A 9-in. center display
  • 12.3-in. digital driver's display
  • Bluetooth connectivity
  • SiriusXM Satellite Radio

Safety

Safety in a Volvo is legendary and includes a comprehensive set of driver-assist and safety components on every model, such as forward-collision warnings with automatic emergency braking and rear cross-traffic alert with pedestrian detection. With a 360-degree surround-view camera and the Pilot Assist semi-autonomous drive system, Volvo goes beyond Audi when it comes to safety. Additional Volvo safety features include:

  • Lane-keeping assist
  • LED active bending headlights
  • Road sign recognition
  • Inflatable airbag curtains
  • Front seat whiplash protection
