BMW X1 xDrive20d M Sport Vs Volvo XC40 R-Design- visual highlights

Volvo has launched their entry-level SUV in the form of the XC40 and has priced it at Rs 39.90 lakhs (all-India ex-showroom). We’ve driven the car and here is a link to the first drive. There’s a great deal we’ve told you about the car already. But here in this story we are going to look at something different, namely its visual highlights.

Now, the XC40 is a direct rival to the BMW X1 in the entry-level crossover segment. The visual highlights in both these cars are a result of their speciality design packages. In the Volvo, it is the signature R-Design package while the X1 gets the M Sport package. They both add extra pizzzaz to the vehicle and here is what you get as compared to their standard counterparts.

The R-Design package adds to the XC40 a blacked out roof, R-Design alloy wheels and grille, exhaust tips integrated into the rear bumper and C-pillar with the R-Design touches. The interior is pretty much like the standard XC40 but you do get an R-Design spec gear knob.

The BMW X1 in this 20d M Sport package gets a few more bits as compared to the Volvo XC40. Whereas the latter was mostly visual appeal, the former gets a sports suspension also. The X1 comes with an M body kit, M-spec grille and door sills and of course, their signature 18-inch M design alloy wheels. The interior, here is louder than that of the XC40 with regard to M spec reiteration. You get M badging on the seats, steering gear knob and door sills. In terms value addition, it does look like the X1 has the upper hand. You are paying more for your car but you get a lot more in terms of extra visual elements.
