The first thing to look at in our Volvo XC40 lease comparison is the model that gives you the features you want to have. Since you're looking at compact SUVs, be sure to click through our Volvo S60 lease comparison. You might discover that this sporty new Volvo sedan is the vehicle you need for your commute.

The new Volvo XC40 for sale is available in three exclusive trim styles. If you're shopping for BMW X1 lease deals, you're probably noticing that the BMW X1 sDrive28i and BMW X1 xDrive28i both offer an expansive range of options but require the purchase of additional packages, which, in turn, increases the price of your BMW X1. This added price is especially important when considering that the new BMW X1 is already starting at $35,400 MSRP,2 and is more expensive than the 2022 Volvo XC40.

Interior Features and Styling

The Volvo XC40 Momentum comes with a 12-inch instrument panel, dynamic chassis, and the safety of a Lane Keeping Aid. Step up to the Volvo XC40 Inscription if you're looking for Front/Rear Parking Assist, a high-performance audio system, and the sleek style of hidden tailpipes. The flagship Volvo XC40 R-Design comes with glossy black mirror covers, 19-inch wheels, nubuck/nappa leather upholstery, and the R-Design front grille. The 2021 BMW X1 has a touch-screen infotainment system and Apple CarPlay®, both of which are available on the 2022 Volvo XC40.

If you're considering a compact SUV because fuel economy and efficiency are important factors, remember that you can also lease a Volvo S60 mild hybrid that gives you the competitive mpg you're after.

Cargo Area and Passenger Room

When comparing the Volvo XC40 to a BMW X1 lease, daily usability is an important factor. Let's look at the dimensions of both vehicles in our Volvo XC40 and BMW X1 review and lease comparison to help you choose the vehicle that offers the practicality that matches your lifestyle.

The Volvo XC40 is 174.2 inches long and sits on a 106.4-inch wheelbase. She measures 80.1 inches wide and 65.3 inches tall. This creates a cargo capacity of 57.5 cubic feet.

A BMW X1 lease will measure 175.5 inches long, 71.7 inches wide, and 62.9 inches tall. As you can see, the BMW X1 is narrower and shorter than a Volvo XC40, which is something you and your passengers will likely feel. When you consider that the cargo capacity is up to 58.7 cubic feet, it would seem that passenger space is compromised.

Which car has more power between Volvo XC40 vs. BMW X1?

The Volvo XC40 has a more potent powertrain available than that which comes on the BMW X1. The 2023 Volvo XC40 B5 AWD mild-hybrid SUV uses a supercharged and turbocharged 2.0-liter engine and a 48-volt mild-hybrid system to make 247 horsepower. This outstrips the 241 horsepower of the new BMW X1. You'll roar down the road in this powerful SUV.

Which car has more safety features between Volvo XC40 vs. BMW X1?

Both of these cars have a great lineup of standard safety features, but Volvo Cars offers more of them to drivers. Each SUV has forward collision warning, automated emergency braking, lane-keeping assist, and blind-spot monitoring. Available features like the 360-degree parking camera for the Volvo XC40, however, push the Volvo SUV over the top in our Volvo XC40 vs. BMW X1 lease deals comparison.

Which car has a higher top speed between Volvo XC40 vs. BMW X1?

Volvo Cars has an electronic speed limiter on the Volvo XC40 that causes the vehicle to top out at 112 miles per hour. The BMW X1 can achieve speeds of up to 149 miles per hour. At the end of the day, we see the speed limiter as a safety feature: unless you're at the track, cracking the three-digit mark on the speedometer is dangerous and irresponsible.
