Both Volvo and Land Rover are top-rated cars in the market, known for their luxury models such as Land Rover Discovery and Volvo XC40. If you are looking to buy one of them, the below comparison will help you.

Design & Style

The 2020 Land Rover Discovery has a standard seating configuration for 5 people, but it can seat only 4. It comes standard with leather upholstery, and there some good quality materials inside. The front row has spacious seating, but the back row is cramped. If you opt for a third row, it is better to use it as cargo space.

The 2020 Volvo XC40 is a 5-seater model with ample legroom and headroom across all the rows. It has one of the nicest interiors in class and offers ample space for taller passengers. It is as elegant as higher level models, and discerning luxury car buyers may really like the interior design. The strong build quality is well complemented with overall design.

Technology & Safety

The 2020 Land Rover Discovery comes with an InControl Touch pro infotainment system that has a lagging touch screen. However, there are some standard features such as 10-speaker system, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and Wi-Fi hot spot. Some of the key driver assistance features include fog lights, clear exit monitor, driver drowsiness monitoring, emergency braking, rain-sensing wipers and rear cross traffic alert.

On the other hand, the 2020 XC40 is blessed with a bunch of features including USB ports, Bluetooth, Satellite radio, HD radio, Wi-Fi hot spot, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and 9-inch infotainment system. There are plenty of optional features including the likes of wireless device charging, Harman Kardon system, dual-zone automatic climate control and panoramic moonroof. Speaking of the safety features, we have a rearview camera, automatic high beam headlights, traffic sign recognition, oncoming collision mitigation, lane keep assist, lane departure warning, road departure mitigation and forward collision warning. The infotainment controls


The 2020 Land Rover Discovery is powered by the base 340-HP V6 engine that provides enough power for most car buyers.  However, it fails to impress in terms of fuel efficiency. You get an 8-speed automatic transmission with both powertrains.

The 2020 XC40 comes with a turbo-charged 4-cylinder engine that feels highly athletic in most situations. The engine is mated to an 8-speed transmission, and it offers great fuel efficiency in both highway and city traffic.

The Bottom Line

Regardless of technology, space, design or performance, the 2020 Volvo XC40 is an ideal combination. It offers an all-round appeal that includes a working interior design and a long list of features on offer.
