      Both a are good looking SUV. I'm leasing this X3 and own other Bimmers, and must say this XC60 & XC40 made a huge 'comeback' - close runner up.

      Dear reviewer, at last read the cars specifications before you do more such a "tests" later on...
      Temperature can be adjusted from rear seats on the Volvo if you order 4 zone air-con.
      You comments about rolling body in the Volvo are ...BS...sorry. It is more comfy, possibly less sporty (what does the sporty mean on an SUV?!) but it is well controlled. On the other hand the rear seats on the X3 are adjustable and on the XC60 there is no such an option (shame Volvo) nor there is sunshade option available (again, shame on Volvo, a Skoda Super got this feature). Pockets are obviously better on the beemer (where is the old Volvo practicality?). Ground clearance is higher on the Volvo which matters for whose who want to use this car as real SUV, that is including light off road.

      Comparing apples to oranges -- not the same price band or the power generation. Poor comparison.

      CRAP REVIEW, Not a great comparison, The T8 has extra weight to carry around corners !! how ridiculous to compare the two with that disadvantage !! what on earth were you thinking of ? you could of compared it to either a D4 or D5 ,much lighter, and cornering would of benefited as a result !! especially if you bothered to put it into Dynamic mode !!

      No mention of the standard digital display ! which costs a fortune in the BMW should you require it, as for the rear not having air con controls, rubbish, it's available on the Inscription as standard.

      Those huge wheels on the XC60 are not standard, so if you are stupid enough to choose big wheels with low profile tyres, then you will have a less comfortable ride !! so don't complain about something the buyer has total control over !!

      The interior of the BMW feels airy and spacious because it has a blonde interior ! this is not rocket science, black will always make an equal space feel smaller !! so stop giving the impression that the Volvo is smaller inside !! oh yes, the Volvo ALSO has controls to fold the rear seats from the boot ! so WHY give the impression only the BMW offers this ? Crap review because it is very bias !!

      Plus the BMW is boring, same old same old !! see one BMW you've seen them all.

      BMW s are unreliable. There are two class action lawsuits against BMW in USA -- one for exploding sunroofs. and the other for Engine terminology " Twin " power when only equipped with one TURBO!!!

      I didn’t get this comparison; why using the top of the range XC 60 T8 hybrid vs BMW 2 l diesel - the XC60 D4 would’ve been the obvious choice considering the bang for the buck is a pretty important factor which is completely disregarded here.
