Offering a high performance Polestar model, the 2020 Volvo XC60 also offers a slight range increase for its T8 version. This car continues to attract car buyers in Manhattan with its posh interior and comfortable seats.

Coming with new standard features, the 2019 BMW X3 seems to be giving buyers more options in the world of luxury subcompact SUVs as well. It has spacious and supportive seats inside as well.

Design & Style

The 2020 Volvo XC60 simply knows how to define the varying needs of car buyers these days. This is evident in its outstanding exterior design, where rough edges meet stylish components to refine it a bit. Inside it, there is plenty of legroom and headroom, which works to the comfort of taller passengers. The top-notch interior is classy to look at, and feels truly soft to the touch.

An impressive SUV from BMW, the X3 is indeed a combination of toughness and luxury as well. This car has a spacious cargo, and also offers spacious seas inside, just like the XC60. The only notable difference is that it lacks the flair and opulence that its rivals offer.

Technology & Safety

Like its other brothers from Volvo, the 2020 XC60 has the nine-inch touchscreen working with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, satellite radio, Bluetooth, 10-speaker stereo, and all other functionalities integrated with its Sensus infotainment system. There is a rearview camera that comes standard with this ride. On top of that, advanced driver aids like oncoming lane mitigation, collision mitigation with active braking, driver drowsiness monitoring, lane keep assist, traffic sign recognition, and run-off road mitigation comes with the base trim. There is also a feature that works for pedestrian, cyclist, and large animal detection.

The 2019 BMW X3, on the other hand, has the 6.5-inch touchscreen for its iDrive infotainment interface. This, however, lacks support for Android Auto. While it does integrate Apple CarPlay into the system, this feature is free only for a year from the date of purchase. Safety wise, only pedestrian detection, traffic sign recognition, and forward collision warning can be found in this ride.


Carrying a four-cylinder, 2.0-liter engine, the 2019 X3 can reach a mark of 248 horsepower. As for the 2020 XC60, there are four powertrains, the most basic of which is the T5 that produces 250 horsepower. The second engine version in the T6 is a supercharged and turbocharged engine that produces 316 horsepower. There is a T8 that combines the T6 with an electric motor to produce 400 horsepower, and lastly the Polestar Engineered version for a 415-horsepower register.

The Bottom Line

The 2020 Volvo XC60 is extremely remarkable in a lot of aspects. It combines design and style aspects really well, while also covering a long list of tech and safety features. Its different engine versions are way better than the one offered by the X3, as well.
