Volvo XC60 vs BMW X3

The 2019 Volvo XC60 Outdoes Its Competition in San Antonio

If you're in the market for a compact luxury SUV, you probably want to find one with a composed ride and handling. Most likely, you also want one with an elegant, feature-filled interior and top-notch safety features. You can get all that in one SUV - the 2019 Volvo XC60. The new XC60 has one of the finest cabins in its class, with first-class materials and an abundance of helpful safety technology. It also offers you a choice of three powerful, fuel-efficient engines. The 2019 BMW X3 is also a quality crossover with good performance and lots of features. But here at Principle Volvo Cars of San Antonio, we think the XC60 has a little more to offer in terms of standard features. We believe that if they look at both models a little closer, drivers in the San Antonio and New Braunfels, TX areas will concur that the XC60 is the superior SUV.

Compare the 2019 Volvo XC60 with the 2019 BMW X3

  • The New XC60 Has a Standard Panoramic Moonroof: A panoramic moonroof can make your interior lighter and airier. Schertz-area drivers who like to explore the great outdoors will love the excellent views from the XC60's standard panoramic moonroof. The BMW X3 offers a panoramic moonroof, but you have to pay more and get a higher trim level to get it.
  • The New XC60 Has More Cargo Space: Many compact SUVs come up short on cargo space. This is not the case with the Volvo XC60. People in the Cibolo area who bring a lot of luggage, groceries, or picnic supplies with them will appreciate that the new XC60 has 63.3 cubic feet of cargo room when its back seats are folded. The BMW X3 has only 62.7 cubic feet of maximum cargo capacity.
  • The New XC60 Has More Towing Capability: The new XC60 has a higher towing capacity than most SUVs in its class. People in the San Marcos area who enjoy towing boats or campers to the lake will like that the XC60 can tow up to 5,291 pounds when properly equipped. The BMW X3 has a towing capacity of only 4,400 pounds.
  • The New XC60 Has a Better Infotainment System: The new XC60 comes standard with the Sensus infotainment system, which has a vertically oriented 9-inch touch screen with easy-to-read fonts. The X3 only has a 6.5-inch standard touch screen. San Antonio-area drivers who want to stay connected will prefer the XC60's infotainment system, which unlike the X3's unit, comes standard with support for Apple Carplay and Android Auto.
  • The New XC60 Is More Affordable: Despite its plethora of features and solid capability, the XC60 is more affordable than most of its rivals. The XC60's base model costs nearly $1,200 less than the base BMW X3.
