2019 Volvo XC60 vs. Its Competition

2019 Volvo XC60 image
Aaron Cole Aaron Cole Managing Editor

The Volvo XC60 is at or near the top of our luxury crossover list thanks to its exceptional features, fit and finish.

The X3 is similarly new and features competent powertrains that we like very much.

The X3 doesn’t offer the same simple, elegant interior, but should be on the short list for any luxury crossover shopper.

The Mercedes-Benz GLC is a rounder shape, with a slightly more refined turbo-4, and offers high-powered engines available in top trims.

The Acura RDX is class leader in restraint, although its new turbo-4 and 10-speed automatic seem a little too busy.

The Audi Q5 offers a more conservative look, but heaps on available tech.

The Infiniti QX50 offers a world-beating new engine but could use a little more work in the details.
