Learn How the Volvo XC40 SUV Compares to its Audi Wilmington Rival

If you're looking for compact crossover in the greater Wilmington or Newark DE areas, then you know that you have an abundance of options. However, limit that search to the premium options that offer you the best combinations of design, performance, and safety, and the list gets significantly smaller. Two of the top choices are the Volvo XC40 and the Audi Q3, so we thought it a good idea to see how they fared in a head-to-head competition. Read on to see the results.


Performance



  • The Volvo XC40 comes with a standard T4 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that makes 187 horsepower and 221 pound-feet of torque
  • The XC40 also offers an available T5 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that pushes out 248 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque
  • The Audi Q3 comes with one engine: a 2.0-liter four-cylinder that creates 228 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque
  • Both SUVs offer eight-speed automatic transmissions
  • When it comes to fuel efficiency, each XC40 engine delivers better mileage numbers for New Castle DE drivers than the Q3's engine can muster

Interior Space

  • The Volvo XC40 offers more headroom, legroom, and shoulder room for both front and rear passengers, making it the more comfortable option for Hockessin commutes
  • If you, like most of us, carry your gear wherever you go, the Volvo XC40 boasts the much larger cargo area
  • With the rear seat upright, the XC40 offers 20.7 cubic feet of cargo space
  • The Audi Q3 has 16.7 cubic feet of storage behind its rear seats
  • Fold those rear seats and the XC40 provides 57.5 cubic feet of cargo capacity
  • The Q3 only has 50.3 cubic feet of room when the rear seats are lowered

Safety & Technology

  • Oxford-area parents will be pleased to know that the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety named the Volvo XC40 a Top Safety Pick+ for 2019; the Audi Q3 hasn't earned such a rating
  • Both SUVs offer the modern technologies that Wilmington drivers want, such as Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ smartphone integration, infotainment systems, and satellite radio
