When taking a look for the right SUV to handle the daily challenges of your life, there are quite a few options around the Cary, NC area. Whether you need cool capability for a long family trip to the beach or you just want responsive power and performance that can handle your daily commute, the Volvo XC40 is the perfect fit. Even when matched up to models like the Audi A3, BMW X1 and Mercedes-Benz GLA, you'll find that the Volvo SUV stands a step above. Swing by our Volvo dealership and we'll show you what the XC40 has to offer.

Volvo XC40 vs Audi Q3

  • While both SUVs can accommodate up to five passengers, the Volvo ensures premium comfort for backseat passengers with more legroom and headroom. Front seat passengers can stretch their legs out with ease- a feat you won't be able to manage with the Audi SUV.
  • The Volvo model offers an impressive fuel economy, achieving 23 mpg in the city and 31 mpg on the highway when all-wheel drive equipped. The Audi, which comes standard with quattro® all-wheel drive, only achieves 19 mpg in the city and 27 mpg while on the highway.

Volvo XC40 vs BMW X1

  • When you upgrade to the Volvo T5 trim configuration, your engine is upgraded to a 2.0-liter turbocharged affair that outputs more horsepower (248 to 228) than the BMW X1. They also produce an equal amount of maximum torque (258 pound-feet).
  • The Volvo XC40 comes standard with Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ smartphone integration ensuring you stay connected while on the go. The BMW X1 does not offer Android Auto™ and only provides a trial run of the Apple CarPlay™.

Volvo XC40 vs Mercedes-Benz GLA

  • Drivers who are looking to find the most spacious cargo will look to choose the Volvo XC40 over the Mercedes-Benz GLA. The Volvo offers 57.5 cubic feet to the Mercedes-Benz's somewhat limited 43.6 cubic feet.
  • When you're looking for easy access to your music and apps, the Volvo SUV offers a nine-inch touchscreen. Mercedes-Benz drivers will only discover an eight-inch display that comes standard with the GLA.
