Compare the Volvo XC60 to the Competition in Marietta GA

How Does the New Volvo XC60 Compare to Other Luxury SUVs For Sale near Atlanta?

If you're thinking about buying or leasing a new Volvo XC60 in Marietta, this question has likely been on your mind quite a bit. Luckily, as one of the premier new Volvo dealers serving the greater Atlanta area, we understand the value of doing your due diligence before committing to a new vehicle. That's why our team of Volvo product experts has courteously provided a comprehensive breakdown of the strengths of the new Volvo XC60 and how it fares against luxury SUV segment rivals like the new Audi Q5 and BMW X5.

The Volvo XC60 vs. the BMW X5

Both the new Volvo XC60 and BMW X5 are compelling luxury SUVs in their own right, but take a close look at their offerings and you'll see a stark difference between the two.

As with many of our latest Volvo vehicles, the best place to start a competitive comparison is with the safety features they both offer. The Volvo Brand has always been known for its robust approach to driver safety, which is why the new Volvo XC60 features such innovative standard safety features as…

  • Blind Spot Information System
  • Forward Collision Mitigation with Automatic Emergency Braking
  • Lane Keeping Assist
  • Rear Cross-Traffic Alert
  • Rear Parking Sensors
  • Reverse Automatic Braking

Now, when you compare that long list of standard safety technologies to the offerings of the new BMW X5, you'll see the difference quickly. The BMW X5 offers…

  • Forward Collision Mitigation
  • Lane Departure Warning
  • Blind Spot Monitoring
  • Rear Cross-Traffic Alert

In addition to the disparity between the standard safety technologies offered by the new Volvo XC60 and the BMW X5, there's also some differences between the technology that both of their in-cabin technologies provide.

The Volvo XC60 features the latest version of the Sensus infotainment system, which supports both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto and offers an integrated Google Assistant, allowing you to seamlessly control in-car entertainment, adjust the climate control, check your Google Calendar, use navigation, and much more with natural voice commands. The BMW X5 makes a strong showing of its own with its Apple CarPlay and Android Auto-enabled infotainment system, but it pales in comparison to the functionality and sophistication of the Google-powered infotainment system that the Volvo XC60 offers.


The Volvo XC60 vs. the Audi Q5

While the aforementioned safety and technology features certainly help the new Volvo XC60 stand out against many luxury SUV rivals for sale near Smyrna and Kennesaw, performance is still the best metric of success for the segment. Luckily, when it comes to delivering an engaging and exhilarating driving experience, the new Volvo XC60 easily overcomes its competitors.

With the available Polestar Engineered Recharge powertrain, the new Volvo XC60 boasts up to 415 horsepower and 494 pound-feet of torque, giving it exceptional acceleration for highway driving and winding country roads. Even in its most powerful configuration, the new Audi Q5 can only output up to 362 horsepower and 369 pound-feet of torque.

The Verdict

When compared with the BMW X5, the new Volvo XC60 offers more in the way of standard safety technologies to keep you secure on Atlanta roads and highways. It's also more sophisticated on the infotainment system front with its Google-powered software suite.

While the Audi Q5 and Volvo XC60 are on fairly even footing in many respects, the Volvo XC60 offers more overall horsepower and torque, making it a much more engaging luxury SUV to drive around the greater Marietta, GA area.
