Pros and Cons

  • Pros
  • Cons

    BMW 3 Series

    • Styling. Low, sporty and all things fun! M Sport variant looks delicious.
    • Punchy engines. Pick the petrol or the diesel, both promise to please with performance.
    • Quality. Interior now feels like a scaled-down 5 Series in earnest.

    Volvo XC40 Recharge

    • Classy and understated styling
    • Top-notch interior quality
    • Loaded with comfort, convenience and safety features
    • Hair-raising performance makes it a delight to drive

    BMW 3 Series

    • Silly feature omissions: 360° camera, keyless entry, Android Auto - all missing.
    • Low seating and tight kneeroom means it’s less than ideal for the chauffeur-driven.
    • Most of the 480-litre boot is taken up by the spare wheel.

    Volvo XC40 Recharge

    • ADAS features can be tricky to operate in Indian traffic conditions
    • Spare tyre eats into usable boot space
    • Segment-above petrol-powered options available at a similar price
