While it may be one of the newest models available on the market in Houston, TX, the Volvo XC40 has proven that it was well worth the wait. Compared to its rivals, the BMW X1 and Audi Q3, the Volvo XC40 consistently proves to be a better value, and offers you more versatility as well. Volvo at Star Motor Cars is proud to offer the newest Volvo SUV as part of our new inventory, and we’re happy to let you know how it stacks up to its closest competition.

Under the hood, the Volvo XC40 is available with two different engine packages. This is already more than either the BMW X1 or Audi Q3, but what those engines offer sweetens the deal even further. Opting for the lower horsepower 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine in the XC40 delivers you 187 horsepower and up to 33 mpg highway, 23 mpg city, and 27 mpg combined. That’s better than both the BMW X1 and Audi Q3 in terms of fuel economy, and only about 40 horsepower less than both models.

However, if power is more important to you than fuel economy, you can have the more powerful version of the same turbocharged four-cylinder engine and get 248 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. While the torque figure is identical for all three vehicles, the XC40 bests both the BMX X1 and Audi Q3 by 20 horsepower. What’s more, you get equal or better fuel economy in the XC40, even with the more powerful engine.

The Volvo XC40 is also available with a sunroof as is the Audi Q3, however the BMW X1 does fall short by not offering a sunroof on any trim level. Keyless ignition is also standard on all three models, and all come with all-wheel drive.
