Volvo XC60 vs. 2020
Nissan Murano - Volvo Cars Edinburg - Edinburg, TX

Are you in the market for a midsize SUV that puts your family's safety above all else - but doesn't skimp on comfort, design, and performance? Two favorites in the segment are the 2020 Volvo XC60 and the 2020 Nissan Murano, but which is the superior SUV? When the two go head to head, it is clear that the 2020 Volvo XC60 beats out the 2020 Nissan Murano in nearly every way. For example:


Across the entire lineup, the 2020 Murano takes its power from a 3.5-liter DOHC 24-valve V6 engine that pumps out a respectable 260 horsepower and 240 lb-ft of torque. However, the 2.0-liter direct injected four-cylinder engine in the 2020 Volvo XC60 generates more torque (258 lb-ft) and almost as much horsepower. That said you could supercharge the Volvo engine to increase horsepower to 316 horsepower and torque to 295 lb-ft. The hybrid powertrain ups the ante to 400 (combined) horsepower and 472 (combined) lb-ft of torque.


The number one identifier of Volvo Cars is its commitment to safety, which truly sets it apart from the competition. While the new Nissan Murano offers competitive safety technologies, they are no match for those of the Volvo XC60. The XC60 boasts a wide range of safety technologies, from the Blind Spot Information System with Steer Assist and Cross Traffic Alert to a 360-degree bird's eye parking view and Run-off Road Mitigation and Intelligent City Safety tech. It even boasts a vibrating steering wheel alert when you start to veer from your lane.


The Scandinavian design is another hallmark of the Volvo Cars brand - and another clear way that the 2020 Volvo XC60 stands apart from the 2020 Nissan Murano and other less ambitious SUVs. Its design is athletic and sleek on the exterior and minimalistic with premium materials on the inside.
