Are you looking for the right luxury SUV for your commute near the Devon, Malvern, and Phoenixville, Pennsylvania, areas? If you don't know which SUV between the 2020 Audi Q3 and the Volvo XC40 better serves your needs, Audi Devon has developed the following comparison of both award-winning vehicles. We detail the differences, so you can choose your next car with confidence.

Power Differences: Audi Q3 vs Volvo XC40

The Audi Q3 comes with their standard, patented quattro® all-wheel drive, giving you the traction you need on slippery surfaces. The Volvo XC40 also offers all-wheel drive, but it is not standard with every trim. Whip up a frenzy on the road in the Audi Q3 with 228 horsepower that moves forward with the force of 258 lb-ft of torque. In the Volvo XC40, you'll get much less energy, with only 187 horsepower backed by 221 lb-ft of torque.

Comfort Throughout the Cabin

In the cabin of the Audi Q3, you get nothing short of what appears to be an endless list of comfort. The temperature within your SUV can be adjusted to every rider's preference with Audi's standard-issue, three-zone automatic climate control. In comparison, Volvo's XC40 only provides a standard 2-Zone Electronic Climate System.


If you decide fresh, balmy air acts as the antidote you need for the pressures of the day, open the Audi Q3's standard panoramic power glass tilt and slide sunroof. While the XC40 does offer a panoramic power sunroof, it is optional.

The Audi Q3's standard, yet deluxe leather heated front seat also allows you to reinforce your cushioning with its 4-way power lumbar support. You can also benefit from the 8-way power-adjustable functions it offers.

Audi Q3 vs Volvo XC40: Storage

Ease the grocery retrieval process with the standard power tailgate in the Audi Q3. If you drive the Volvo XC40, the power tailgate is available, but not standard. To adjust the space to your liking for whatever items you tote home from your travels, the Audi Q3's adjustable cargo floor with underfloor storage works with your ideas about how to make space. Choose the Volvo, and you'll only get the option of a folding load floor in your XC40 SUV.

Talking About Tech

Some tech features bridge the gap between helping you out and catering to your needs. No other comparable SUV-including the Volvo XC40-uses the dynamic tool that the 2020 Audi Q3 does for setting directions or searching for destinations.

Audi's available MMI® touch response with handwriting recognition allows you to write your desired destination right on the surface of the 10.1-inch center display. Almost immediately, directions to your goal and other pertinent information appear from the inner workings of the system. It will not involve you typing into a keyboard-or using your voice and realizing that the system misunderstood your pronunciation.

Do You Like It Loud?

When you choose an audio system for your car, what are you most interested in? Is it the sound quality, or the volume? The Audi Q3 gives you both, with the available Bang & Olufsen® 3D Premium Sound System's 15 speakers, 16-channel amplifier, and 680 watts of power. Have a rough day at work? Blast your stereo and feel the stress roll off your back! In comparison, an available Harman Kardon Premium Sound System with 13 speakers can be added in your Volvo XC40.
