Comparing this New 2018 Volvo XC60 to the 2018 Audi Q5 2.0T Quattro Premium, 2018 BMW X3 xDrive 30i and 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLC300 4MATIC in Winter Park, FL

The 2018 Volvo XC60 has a lot of fans here in the showroom of The Volvo Store, as this new Volvo model represents the midsize luxury SUV class well with its personality, style and creative design. And to put this reputation into proper context, we've decided to see how the competition compares. From top Audi to BMW and Mercedes-Benz competitors, our team has embarked on a journey to judge some related vehicle in the segment and share our verdict.

Award Season Recognition

Joining an elite category for your security and peace of mind as a driver, this new Volvo model was named a 2018 IIHS Top Safety Pick+ for the midsized luxury SUV segment. This distinction is not shared by the Audi Q5 or BMW X3 competition. The Mercedes-Benz model failed to be recognized as a best of the year nominee by, an impressive achievement that the XC60 adds to its collection of accomplishments. Considering these accolades, the fact that this new Volvo model comes at a less expensive starting MSRP than both the GLC300 and X3 is striking.

Passenger Space and Cargo Accommodation

Greater cargo volume in this new Volvo SUV allows you to remain fluid throughout the day, re-arranging your cabin as needed to store personal items or supplies you pick up. The Volvo XC60 also comes with greater leg room in both rows than the three models compared, giving you that needed balance of comfort for those times you spend a full day seated inside.


The base 2.0-liter turbocharged I4 engine of the XC60 proves to offer more potential than the competing BMW and Mercedes-Benz SUVs, with a greater impact on capability through 250 horsepower. With extra ground clearance over all three models for clearing less than ideal road surfaces and landscapes, adventures on the move are always a possibility.


From standard SiriusXM satellite radio, which is just an option in these competitors, to Sensus Connect with a synced mobile app connectivity, the 2018 Volvo XC60 proves to be a digitally superior vehicle that can entertain and keep you in touch with the outside world. Driver-assist features for this model are extensive as well, with a traffic sign recognition feature you won't enjoy in the three other options.
