The Volvo XC40 Packs More Value and Convenience Than Other Luxury SUVs

Adaptability and comfort are two characteristics that models in the luxury SUV category pull off better than any other types of vehicles, and luxury crossovers take those aspects while adding a sportiness to your drive that larger SUVs don't offer.

This blend of qualities is what draws car shoppers from all around Grand Rapids to luxury crossovers, and no models do it better than the Volvo XC40, which has style, tech, and practicality in abundance. Don't believe us? Read on to see a few ways you'll enjoy the Volvo XC40 more than similar models like the BMW X1, Infiniti QX30, and Mercedes-Benz GLA.

Volvo XC40 vs. BMW X1

  • Rockford car shoppers will love the number of options they have for customizing the Volvo XC40 to their liking, and it starts with the engines. It offers an engine that gets up to an EPA-estimated four more miles per gallon combined than the BMW X1's only engine option while the XC40's other engine has more power for those drivers craving excitement on the road.
  • The Volvo XC40 packs more value because even though it has a lower starting price, it comes standard with features, like a 9-inch touchscreen display, LED headlights, and digital driver display, and high-end materials, like real-leather seats, that the BMW X1 doesn't have.
  • Those around Wyoming, MI looking for an even higher level of luxury will find that the Volvo XC40 offers a range of tech and amenities, like a nicer sound system from Harman Kardon, that the BMW X1 doesn't.

Volvo XC40 vs. Infiniti QX30

  • These cars are very similar when looking at the exterior measurements, but the Volvo XC40 uses that room much more sensibly as it has advantages in space for nearly every area. It has more head, shoulder, and hip room for each of the two rows, more maximum cargo space, and nearly three additional inches of legroom for the rear than the Infiniti QX30.
  • Have more items to transport from Grandville, say for a trip up north? The Volvo XC40 comes standard with roof rails, which are perfect for adventure gear, and its more powerful engine options can tow trailers up to 3,500 pounds, which the weaker engines of the Infiniti QX30 can't handle.
  • Whether you look at the tech, like the 12.3-inch digital driver display, or the interior materials, like the perforated Nappa leather seats, the Volvo XC40 offers more to make sure drivers and passengers enjoy their drive than the QX30, which doesn't have similar tech or high-end materials.


Volvo XC40 vs. Mercedes-Benz GLA Class

  • Despite not differing much in size, the Mercedes-Benz GLA puts new meaning to compact SUV, and not in a good way. Rear seat passengers, even young ones, will find that the 27.3 inches of legroom and 53.1 inches of shoulder room of the GLA feels cramped when compared with the 36.1 and 56.3 inches the Volvo XC40 has for rear leg and shoulder room respectively. Plus, the XC40 has a larger cargo area.
  • Even as the more spacious of the two, the Volvo XC40 provides a more captivating, smoother ride to Kentwood, MI drivers as it has more powerful engine options and a tighter turning radius for superior handling.
  • The Volvo XC40 puts a premium on passenger safety, which shows in the standard safety features, like the lane keeping aid, and available ones, like active bending lights, neither of which the Mercedes-Benz GLA offers.
