Volvo vs. BMW: Which Luxury Brand is Right for You?

Wondering about the benefits of choosing Volvo vs. BMW? Although each manufacturer has a good reputation with drivers near Big Timber and Livingston, the truth is simply that Volvo is more consumer-focused and more forward-thinking in their lineup than competing German manufacturers like BMW and Audi. We’ve broken down the reasons why many drivers prefer Volvo, below!

Volvo Leads the Way Forward

Volvo is constantly pushing the envelope in three key areas: technology, safety, and electrification. While the inclusion of next-generation features often leads to higher repair costs–giving the appearance of lower reliability–Volvo models are perfectly dependable. If you want to feel as though you’re on the cutting edge, there’s really only one option to consider:

  • Technology Features: Volvo hasn’t always described their vehicles as “luxury” models, and unlike their competitors at BMW, they can’t rest on their laurels alone. In order to compete with their better-known rivals, Volvo has set about equipping all of their vehicles with next-generation technology features, including large infotainment systems with Sensus Connect and stunning upright touchscreens. They’ve just expanded their technology development center in Silicon Valley, and recent unveilings have included the S90 Ambience Concept and a road conditions sharing system for their European cars.
  • Safety Technology: There aren’t many manufacturers who can compete with Volvo when it comes to safety. In fact, they’ve pledged to eliminate all deaths and serious injuries in their new vehicles by 2020! Such a goal might sound far-fetched, but already in the U.S. there were no recorded XC90 deaths in the period from 2009 to 2012. Compared to the lighter, less well-equipped models you’ll find in BMW lineup, Volvo is the clear winner for drivers concerned with safety.
  • Electrification: The Volvo Group’s latest report on electrification includes a stunning passage: They expect electric cars to take up 50% of their sales volume by 2025! The BMW group is far less ambitious, with a same-year sales volume target of just 15-25%. Unsurprisingly, Volvo is already on the road to success: Every 2019 model in their lineup is available with an electric motor, leading to better fuel economy and performance.

Volvo Warranty vs. BMW Warranty

New Volvo vehicles and new BMW vehicles come with similar new vehicle warranties. With either option, select components will be covered for 48 months or 50,000 miles, whichever comes first. However, Volvo also gives drivers the option to purchase an official Lifetime Parts and Labor Warranty when they receive their new car! Select BMW dealers offer similar programs, but no official BMW package provides similar coverage.

Many drivers choose certified pre-owned vehicles because they offer superior dependability for a price that’s often far below the cost of a new car. Comparing a CPO Volvo vs. CPO BMW, it isn’t hard to see where this once-Swedish manufacturer wins out. With a certified pre-owned Volvo, you can extend your warranty coverage for up to 10 years! The certified pre-owned BMW warranty expires after a maximum of six years on the road.
