The Volvo XC40 vs. The BMW X3

With similar features and compact body styles, the Volvo XC40 is the better choice for the Florida roads and highways and here why. When it comes to fuel-efficient performance for your daily commute in North Port, look to two engine options for the Volvo XC40. Though the BMW X3 offers a similar turbo engine that boasts 248-horsepower and receives an estimated 23MPG city and 30 MPG highway, the new Volvo XC60 offers the same horsepower for its T5 trim, but gives standard all-wheel drive and gains 31 MPG on the highway. If you're seeking enhanced traction and control at a better price, you're bound to find your match inside this compact Volvo SUV.

The BMW X3 offers a larger engine that gives more power, but drivers will have to sacrifice fuel efficiency for every commute.

Drivers who are seeking a reliable vehicle, rest assured that the Volvo XC40 is a fantastic choice for a new compact SUV and with a 5/5 consumer rating by Kelley Blue Book, you can drive home confidently knowing you made the best choice.
