With plenty of tech features, the 2020 Volvo XC40 is a vehicle that is, fresh, spunky and well-made. It is fun to drive and has an interior cabin that offers extreme comfort paired with upscale materials. It has a huge cargo storage and the well-executed Swedish design makes it popular among drivers. The XC40 is a vehicle that has enough content to impress everyone. 

The 2020 Audi Q3 has the prominent grille of Audi's design and it stands out as one of the flashier vehicles in its subcompact class. It has a classy interior cabin and spacious front seats that provide a comfortable space for the driver. The rear seats, however, are smaller and cargo space is not that great as well. Performance-wise, those looking for an engaging driving experience will have to look somewhere else.

Design & Style

With a boxy, upright and Swedish contemporary design, the XC40 offers a spacious cabin and luxurious feel to the entire atmosphere. The cabin has enough legroom and headroom for taller passengers and is packed with a variety of user-friendly features.

Like the XC40, the Audi Q3 comes with a load of standard cabin features as well as ambient lighting that soothes the overall interior atmosphere. It has leather upholstery, faux suede on the door panels and dashboard that elevates the overall interior cabin. Its back seats lack space to keep the passenger comfortable on long trips.

Technology & Safety

The 2020 Volvo XC40 comes with several safety and technological features. It is an integrated 9.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system that offers Android Auto and Apple CarPlay capability, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi compatibility.

Like the XC40, the 2020 Audi Q3 has an integrated infotainment system that features Android Auto and Apple CarPlay on an 8.8-inch touchscreen. It also provides passengers with a wide range of safety features such as automated emergency braking and a suite of driver-assistance technology.


The XC40 has an engine that offers a stable and playful ride in any scenario. It is powerful and engaging at the same time. Its well-made suspension damps out all road imperfections and handles well on corners and twisty roads. Driving the XC40 gives the driver a sense of agility as well as power at the same time.

The Audi Q3 engine provides ample power but isn't as quick as the XC40 off the line. The delayed reaction between the pedal and the engine is what you will experience when driving the Q3. However, the transmission provides smooth shifting thus enabling a comfortable ride.

The Bottom Line
