With a capable powertrain and a well-balanced ride, the 2020 Volvo XC60 is one of the top-rated cars in the market. One of its competitors is the 2021 Honda CR-V, which comes with good interior space, but poor performance. If you are looking to buy one of them, the below comparison will help you in making a perfect choice.

Design & Style

The 2021 Honda CR-V is a 5-seater car with ample amount of legroom and headroom, but it can only seat two full-sized adults at the back. Optional upgrades include heated steering wheel, leather upholstery, power-adjustable front seats and heated front seats. The interior is full of quality materials, but there are some low-drab materials as well.

Having the nicest interior in class, the 2020 Volvo XC60 is a simple and elegant car with plenty of quality materials across the interiors. Both the rows are extremely comfortable, and there are plenty of standard features on offer. Five people can be easily seated with ample headroom and legroom on offer.

Technology & Safety

The 2021 Honda CR-V comes equipped with a 5-inch display, automatic climate control, 4-speaker stereo, Bluetooth and USB port. Most competitors offer standard features like smartphone integration, touch screen etc. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are not available in standard version. You may notice a lag in touch screen, as it responds slowly to input. Some of the standard safety features include a collision mitigation braking system, adaptive cruise control, road departure mitigation and a rearview camera.

Standard features in the 2020 XC60 include Sensus infotainment system, Android Auto, Bluetooth, satellite radio, Apple CarPlay and a 9-inch touch screen. The infotainment interface works well, and it is quick to respond. You can easily go through the straightforward menu layout, without much hassle. Standard safety features include driver drowsiness monitoring, oncoming lane mitigation, rearview camera, lane keep assist and traffic sign recognition. This SUV also scans for large animals, pedestrians and intersections.


Speaking of performance, the 2021 Honda CR-V comes equipped with a 1.5-liter 4-cylinder engine that can generate up to 190 HP. It is mated to a continuously variable transmission, but offers very poor fuel efficiency. For the 2020 XC60, it comes with a 250-HP turbo-four engine and a 316-HP turbocharged 4-cylinder powertrain.

The Bottom Line

The 2020 Volvo XC60 is far and way one of the best compact SUVs in the market. An upscale cabin, roomy seats,  and extra cargo space add to the appeal. It strikes a great balance between agility and comfort on the road. The infotainment interface is easy to use, and this vehicle's charm is atop the world.
