Roominess, ruggedness, and sleek design-you'll find them all in BMW Sports Activity Vehicles® (SAV®). That doesn't mean they're the only vehicles that stand out in the luxury SUV segment, though. Let's find out if the 2020 BMW X5 or 2020 Volvo XC90 wins in a head-to-head comparison!

We want to show Canonsburg, Uniontown, and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, shoppers how these two rides compare. Reach out to us at Bobby Rahal BMW of South Hills to learn more.

X5 vs XC90: A Power-Packed Performance

Drivers around Morgantown, West Virginia, know these luxury vehicles for their performance-inspired engines. The 2020 X5 and XC90 are ready to make their mark on the pavement!

The Volvo XC90 runs standardly on a turbo 4-cylinder engine that cranks out 250 horsepower. While the output is solid, you'll see a bit more power from the BMW X5. It runs standardly on a TwinPower Turbo 6-cylinder engine with an incredible 335 horsepower on tap.

At the more powerful end, both vehicles offer available twin-turbocharged V8 engines. However, while you'll see up to 523 horsepower from the performance-tuned BMW X5 M50i trim, the Volvo XC90 tops out with just 400 horsepower from its most powerful engine.


In-Car Connectivity: iDrive Takes the Lead

The BMW X5 and Volvo XC90 are notable for many advancements, including their top-of-the-line in-car infotainment systems. You'll have a touchscreen right at your fingertips with BMW iDrive infotainment and its Volvo counterpart, Sensus.   

Need to send a text while you're behind the wheel? Want to jam out to your own personal playlists as you drive? Both systems make Apple CarPlay® standard, so you can connect your iPhone and use your apps on the go.  

When you go to view your maps on the touchscreen, though, you may prefer the larger screen in the BMW X5. It comes standard with a 12.3-inch touchscreen, while the Volvo XC90 uses a 9-inch screen.


BMW X5 vs Volvo XC90: Interior Features

Interior elegance is a large part of the appeal of any luxury vehicle. So it is with the 2020 X5 and XC90, which sport available heated, ventilated, and massaging front seats.

You can get nice and cozy no matter the weather outside-and you'll arrive feeling completely refreshed and restored after a back massage and power lumbar support when and where you need it most. Plus, a vehicle with leatherette-trimmed seats simply oozes style and class!

The BMW X5 is a bit more flexible with seating: It comes standard as a 2-row SUV with five seats, and it offers an available third row that boosts passenger seating to seven. The Volvo XC90 has three rows in every configuration, so families that need less seating space won't find a 2-row option.


Is the BMW X5 or Volvo XC90 a Better Buy?

We hope you enjoyed this comparison of the 2020 BMW X5 and 2020 Volvo XC90. You can drive in more style and comfort than ever before from behind the wheel of a luxury SUV.

So, which of the two stands out to you? The X5 offers more horsepower, a larger touchscreen, and more seating configurations. For that reason, we think Canonsburg, Uniontown, and Pittsburgh, PA, shoppers will want a closer look-as will those just over the border in Morgantown, WV.
