Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Volvo XC60 than in the BMW X4, due to its greater head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the BMW X4 and the Volvo XC60.

Convenience
