Compare Volvo to BMW

When you compare the Volvo brand to BMW, we win, hands down.

Volvo vs. BMW: Design

These luxury brands are experts in design. BMW and Volvo are both known for their superb designs and comfortable interiors. Missouri drivers, expect genuine leather seating in the Volvo XC90 and synthetic leather in the BMW X5. The Volvo XC90 features seven seats, while the BMW X5 seats five passengers. Lastly, the Volvo offers more front legroom than the BMW. Families in Missouri might consider the Volvo XC90 over the BMW X5 for the interior alone. Not to mention, the Volvo XC90 is perfect for road trips: it has a better highway mpg than the BMW.

The BMW models and Volvo models have A/C. However, Volvo luxury SUVs have dual-zone A/C, which allows rear passengers control over their climate. St. Louis drivers will find comfortable seating in the Volvo XC40 with a conventional cabin and stylish features. Additionally, the Volvo XC40 has a ground clearance of 8.3 inches, while the BMW X1 has a 7.2-inch ground clearance. Missouri drivers looking for an adventurous vehicle should ponder purchasing the Volvo XC40.

Volvo vs. BMW: Safety

The Volvo brand is perhaps best known for its incredible safety abilities. Every year, advanced safety technology becomes more of a priority for Missouri drivers across the board. By standard, a Volvo SUV base model will feature more driver assistance programs than a BMW SUV base model. Our sales consultants at Volvo Cars West County understand that safety remains a top priority for Missouri families. For this reason, we highly recommend Volvo luxury SUVs.

In the Volvo XC90, St. Peters drivers can expect rear and front parking sensors, while the BMW X5 only has rear parking sensors. While both SUVs feature cruise control, Manchester drivers will discover that the Volvo XC90 has adaptive cruise control. Adaptive cruise control is exactly what it sounds like - when enabled, the Volvo XC90 will adjust to traffic flow by keeping a safe distance away from the car in front. This feature allows for an incredibly smooth and safe ride.

Lastly, the BMW X5 has 316 horsepower @ 5700 revolutions per minute (rpm), and the Volvo XC90 has 335 horsepower @ 5500 rpm. The Volvo XC60 and BMW X3 both have excellent crash ratings across the board. However, the Volvo XC60 has a better overall fuel economy and a larger fuel tank.
