The Volvo XC60 Offers an Unparalleled Experience - Compare Luxury SUVs in Barrington, IL

The Volvo XC60, a compact, luxurious and elegant SUV for five people, is one of the most popular models in the collection here at McGrath Volvo Cars Barrington. Ideal for families and single professionals alike, the XC60 offers a high-level ride and impeccable craftsmanship, in a size that's spacious but still maneuverable.

As you shop for your next crossover in the Palatine, IL and Elgin, IL area, we invite you to take a closer look and consider our Volvo XC60 model. As you can see here, when you compare luxury SUVs side by side by side, our XC60 comes out ahead of the competition again and again.

Volvo XC60 vs. Audi Q5

  • Cargo space. Whether it's bringing groceries home in Algonquin, IL or toting your golf bag to the links, the XC60 can accommodate more of your important cargo than the Audi Q5. While the Audi SUV holds around 25 cubic feet of cargo, the XC60 cargo space accommodates up to 29.7 cubic feet.
  • Size and space. In a head-to-head luxury SUV comparison, the XC60 measures wider, taller, and longer than the Q5. On the inside, this translates to more space for you and your friends, with added legroom, elbow room, and shoulder room when compared to the Q5.

Volvo XC60 vs. BMW X3

  • Fuel efficiency and range. Go further on a tank of gas with the XC60 than the X3. Our SUV averages 545 miles on the highway per fill up, while the BMW gets around 499 miles on the highway per tank of gas. Move up to the impressive hybrid options for these SUVs, and the XC60 continues to outperform the BMW, with a higher horsepower output and a 27 mph combined rating, compared to the 24 mpg combined of the BMW X3 hybrid.
  • Passenger comfort and cargo space. Once again, the Volvo XC60 has more space for both passengers and comfort than the BMW X3. Look for more room to stretch your legs in both rows of seats in the XC60 when compared to the BMW and look for nearly 30 cubic feet of cargo space in the Volvo, compared to 28.7 cubic feet in the X3.

Volvo XC60 vs. Mercedes-Benz GLC

  • Interior dimensions. Yet again, when Hoffman Estates drivers want more comfort and space in their SUV, the Volvo XC60 far surpasses the competition. Our SUV has more headroom, legroom, and shoulder room than the GLC, especially in the front seat, and it has a surprisingly larger amount of cargo space than the Mercedes-Benz. Your GLC will only hold around 19 cubic feet of cargo but, opt for the XC60 and you can expect nearly 30 cubic feet.
  • Driving range. Fill up the Volvo XC60, and you can look for around 414 miles in the city and 545 miles on the highway per tank of gas. But fill up the GLC with its required, more-expensive premium unleaded fuel, and you'll get just 383 miles in the city and 505 miles on the highway per full tank.

Volvo XC60 vs. Lexus NX 300

  • Power and performance. Not only does the Volvo XC60 give drivers more engine options to choose from to personalize their luxury SUV, they also delivers more power from these options than the Lexus. Base model NX 300 models start at 235 horsepower, compared to the base 250-horsepower rating of the XC60. Choose the hybrid options for either, and you can expect a robust 400 horsepower from the Volvo, and just 194 horsepower from the Lexus hybrid.
  • Space and interior room. With just 17 cubic feet of room for cargo in the rear of the Lexus SUV, this model doesn't come close to level of interior space that the Volvo XC60 offers. Not only does it have more than 29 cubic feet of cargo space, it also measures wider taller, and longer than the Lexus, translating to a more-spacious interior all around for you, your passengers, and your cargo.
