When we talk about popular luxury car brands, Volvo and BMW are worth mentioning for sure. They have a long list of vehicles to offer, including the likes BMW X4 and the 2020 Volvo XC60. Both have a great set of attributes to offer, but Volvo may have an edge, considering overall aspect. Let us compare them for a better analysis.

Design & Style

The 2021 BMW X4 is a 2-row SUV with 5 seats, offering comfortable front-row space, but very limited back seats. The low roofline cuts down on the visibility and small legroom space makes it difficult for taller passengers. The cabin is not that attractive, although it is cleanly styled.

The 2020 Volvo XC60 is a top-rated car with a classy interior, replete with high quality materials and soft touch points. You have comfortable space in both the rows, and 5 adults can fit in easily. There's plenty of support for longer trips and you have some classy seating upgrades include heated seats and massage functions.

Technology & Safety

The 2021 BMW X4 comes standard with an intuitive iDrive infotainment system featuring HD radio, USB ports, Bluetooth, navigation, Apple CarPlay and 10.2-inch screen. Optional features include 16-speaker Harman Kardon stereo, Wi-Fi hot spot, wireless charging and satellite radio. The screen responds promptly to input, but the menu structure is not easy to understand. Standard safety features include pedestrian detection, automatic emergency braking, forward Collison warning, rear parking sensors and rearview camera.

The 2020 Volvo XC60 comes standard with an intuitive Sensus infotainment system, Bluetooth, satellite radio, 10-speaker system, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and panoramic moonroof. The system is one of the best in class, with high-end features on offer. Standard driver assistance features include active braking, oncoming lane mitigation, driver drowsiness monitoring, traffic sign recognition and a rearview camera.


Performance is a crucial parameter to consider, when you are looking to buy a car. Speaking of which, the 2021 BMW X4 comes equipped with a 248-HP turbo-four engine which lacks power to mergeĀ  on highways. The 2020 Volvo XC60 offers more potent options including a turbocharged 4-cylinder engine. Not only does it accelerate the car smoothly, but also offers high fuel efficiency.

The Bottom Line

The 2020 Volvo XC60 gives you that luxury feel the moment you jump inside. It has a practical design with ample legroom in both the rows. This fun to drive vehicle accelerates rapidly and offers composed ride. The cabin is replete with nice materials and intuitive features. Compared to BMW X4, XC60 is a great option for anyone looking for a complete combination of comfort and agility.
