Check out our facts and see if a Volvo SUV is worth checking out here at Bill Gray Volvo Cars, located less than a half hour outside of Pittsburgh.


Fuel Efficiency


Let us begin by taking a look at the fuel economy in both of these luxurious brands and how well they can serve daily commuters to Canonsburg. While Audi SUVs might look good in their own regard, you will find many of them lacking when it comes to saving fuel in the long-term, such as the Audi Q5, which can travel an EPA-estimated 22 mpg in the city and 27 mpg on the highway. While these numbers may seem typical to a luxury SUV, the competing Volvo XC40 shows us that it does not always have to be that way and can travel an EPA-estimated 23 mpg in the city and an impressive 33 mpg on the highway. What is more, each of the three leading Volvo SUVs come available as gasoline/electric hybrid SUVs, while electric performance is only available on one Audi wagon, but none of their top SUVs.


Interior Space


In talking about their versatile interiors, let is break it down to you by the numbers and compare two midsize luxury SUVs from each: the Audi Q5 and the Volvo XC60.

  • Legroom (front/rear): 41.5/38 inches
  • Shoulder Room (front/rear): 58.2/56.3 in

If you seek a reliable crossover for your growing family in West Mifflin, you will want to know it comes standard with all of the right equipment to keep people safe and well-protected. In terms of safety ratings and technology, let us take a look at the Volvo XC90, which previously earned a place as a Top Safety Pick by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) and comes available with driver-assist features such as adaptive cruise control and City Safety pre-collision avoidance technology. While these features have their equivalents on the comparable Audi Q7, they are only available on higher trims, but are absent from the base. Likewise, this midsize crossover missed out on a Top Safety Pick status by IIHS due to lower ratings on its headlights.
