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

    • Unique styling with SUV cues
    • Easy to drive BS6-compliant petrol engine and smooth gearbox
    • Cabin design, quality and experience

    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

    • Ride quality is not plush enough
    • Not exciting or sporty to drive
    • The most expensive offering in the segment
