With an elegant cabin, spacious seats and great infotainment system, the 2020 Volvo V60 is an inspiring model. And then, you have a good competition in the 2020 BMW X3, but not in line with what Volvo has to offer. Let us compare these to understand better.

Design & Style

The 2020 BMW X3 is a 5-seater model with supportive front seats, but equally cramped back seats. Two adults can fit well in the rear seats, but three can be uncomfortable. There are plenty of quality materials with the interior, but the cabin is not as stylish as other rivals.

On the other hand, the 2020 Volvo V60 is a 5-seater model, having some of the most comfortable seats in the market. There's plenty of room for driver and passengers alike and even the second row serves a lot of space for taller adults. You get enough support from the front seats and the overall interior quality of this vehicle is above par.

Technology & Safety

Standard technology features in the 2020 BMW X3 include iDrive infotainment interface with HD radio, 12-speaker system, USB port, Bluetooth, Apple CarPlay and navigation. Option features include wireless device charging, Harman Kardon audio system and panoramic moonroof. The iDrive system works well, but it is not as user-friendly as other systems. Standard safety features include traffic sign recognition, pedestrian detection, automatic emergency braking, forward collision warning, driver drowsiness monitoring and a rearview camera.


Performance is a key aspect to consider when you are looking to buy a car. Speaking of which, the 2020 BMW X3 comes with a 248-HP turbo-four engine. It offers average power for daily driving and low fuel efficiency. If you are looking for a better option, consider the 2020 Volvo V60 known for its prolific performance and high fuel efficiency. It comes standard with an 8-speed automatic transmission, and the performance is smooth with four available driving modes.

The Bottom Line

The 2020 Volvo V60 has a comfortable cabin with plenty of features on offer. No matter what you seek for, in a luxury crossover, V60 has everything to offer.  While BMW carries a brand value, it is not up to the expectations in terms of performance, technology and interior.
