The 2020 Volvo XC40 is truly a picture of a great car on the outside, with lots of impressive features inside. It boasts of roomy seating arrangements to accommodate taller passengers. Meanwhile, the 2020 BMW X1, is also good to look at on the outside.

Design & Style

The 2020 Volvo XC40 simply knows how to combine modern elements in its ruggedly-looking exterior. Apart from that solid construction, it also has a well-designed interior. The cabin seats up to five people comfortably. In fact, even taller passengers will find the ride fascinating for their built. It has the T-Tec upholstery which combines cloth cushion coverings and synthetic leather bolsters. You will find seats offering good outward visibility in this vehicle.

The 2020 BMW X1, on the other hand, is one that can easily mesmerize car buyers with how it looks. It is equipped with fog lights, automatic wipers, and 18-inch wheels. Inside, the car is gifted with underfloor compartments, which can be used to store other items that you need during a trip. Compared to the XC40, this ride sacrificed outward visibility because of the pillars found in the cabin.

Technology & Safety

The 2020 Volvo XC40 is fitted with the nine-inch vertical touch screen for its Sensus Connect infotainment system. This supports Android Auto and Apple CarPlay integration, and offers Wi-Fi hotspot, too. It comes standard with a rearview camera, as well as other advanced driver aids. The long list includes lane keeping assist, lane departure warning, forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, automatic high-beam headlights, traffic sign recognition, oncoming collision mitigation, and road departure mitigation.

With a modern car like the 2020 BMW X1, it is quite disappointing to find out that it misses on a lot of technologies which the XC40 is equipped with. For one, it does not offer Android Auto in its infotainment system. Also, it has Apple CarPlay but this is only free to use for a year. After that, annual subscription will be required. For your safety, you can count on lane departure warning, low-speed automatic emergency braking, and automatic high beam actuation.


The 2020 BMW X1 is powered by a four-cylinder, 2.0-liter engine, with results reaching only up to 228 horsepower.  In the case of the XC40, there are two engine variations to choose from. One is the standard engine that can generate 187 horsepower, and the other is one that can result in 248 horsepower.

The Bottom Line

The 2020 Volvo XC40 presents a lot of great things in terms of design and style. It is handsome and athletic, with all the list of technology and safety features that make it worthy of its price. Of course, it has engine options to suit everyone's ever changing driving requirements too.
