2018 BMW X2 vs 2019 Volvo XC40

Proudly Serving Ramsey, NJ

The 2018 BMW X2 and the 2019 Volvo XC40 stand out as luxury SUVs that feature upscale styling and plenty of performance under the hoods. You can enjoy having plenty of space in the cabins in an upscale vehicle that features premium materials. When you want to decide which car model will suit your needs, there are a few features to compare both cars.

Exterior Features

The 2018 BMW X2 is a crossover that has a few exterior changes that have been made and is considered to be a more stylish version than its predecessor. It's sleeker and more stylish with an athletic body that has fierce headlights. Its traditional twin-kidney grille allows it to still look like a classic BMW. The vehicle offers full LED headlights and larger air intakes. A standard spoiler that looks more aggressive than the previous version of the car is also included.

The 2019 Volvo XC40's exterior is sportier and more athletic than its predecessor but also looks awkward in attempt to compete in its class. It features plastic-clad wheels and a long hood that doesn't seem to match the rest of the body. The body also features a black roof, which cheapens the appearance of the car and makes it look less upscale compared to the 2018 BMW X2. The vehicle stands out for its chunky tailpipes that look modern and L-shaped taillights that look striking on the back of the car. Those who want to take less of risk may prefer the classy and high-end design of the 2018 BMW X2.

Performance

The agile handling is one of the most impressive features of the 2018 BMW X2 and has a quick response, which makes it a compelling car despite its size. The vehicle also offers some utility and provides an all-wheel drive that will allow you to tackle different types of terrain with ease. M Sports X suspension is available with firm settings to improve the quality of the ride.

The 2019 Volvo XC40 has an engine that is raspy at high rpm but offers 248 horsepower for those who need speed. Fuel efficiency is average for the SUV with 23 mpg in the city. The car feels light on its feet and can accelerate when you want to keep up with traffic.

Comfort

The interior of the 2018 BMW X2 features a simple layout that makes it easy to find all of the controls. Leatherette comes standard in the car, and real leather is an option for drivers. Wood trim contributes to the regal design of the interior setting. Plenty of head- and legroom is available in the front and back seats, making it easy for tall adults to fit comfortably. The sports seats can be adjusted ten different ways and are incredibly supportive. Wide-door openings also make it easy to get in and out of the car comfortably.

One of the main drawbacks of the interior of the 2019 Volvo XC40 is the orange-colored carpet, which looks too daring and bold for the automaker. The stitching on the seats increase the appeal of the setting but are overpowered by the color scheme in the cabin. The suede seat inserts make it a comfortable ride with seats that are supportive and firm.
