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 XC60

    • Very comfortable seats
    • Excellent massage fuction for front seats
    • Radar based safety systems
    • Effective air suspension

    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 XC60

    • Only heating function for rear seats
    • It is offered in just one variant
    • Gear indicator only on instrument cluster
