2020 Volvo XC40 vs 2020 Lexus NX

Serving Chamblee, GA

Today's impressive line of compact luxury crossover SUVs is proof that good things come in small packages. The Volvo XC40 was released in 2018 and was an immediate hit. It joined the Lexus NX, which has been available since 2015. While these are both smaller luxury crossover SUVs, the XC40 is priced more than $3,000 lower than the NX at the base MSRP level. The price difference is only one of many critical factors that you need to be aware of before you drive home in your next crossover SUV.


The 2020 Volvo XC40 has individualized styling from bumper to bumper that gets noticed. Its innovative design is established by its slim profile and geometric sculpting across the side panels. Its unique styling extends to the front end with a flared LED light beam running horizontally through the headlamps and a black grille. Additional features on the 2020 XC40 include thin lower-body cladding, a liftgate spoiler, an angled rear windshield, angular exhaust tips, a hands-free liftgate, and vertical rear lamps. The 2020 Lexus NX takes a different approach with its styling. It has a sharp angle across the hood, and this hood carries into a rounded nose. The nose has a cinched grille, and the accompanying headlights and lower foglamp ports point inwardly toward the center of the grille.


These crossover SUVs share some interior features, but they have unique styling and many other differences that you should be aware of. The XC40's interior may be enhanced by premium leather material with a dual-tone color scheme and contrast stitching in some trims. The beautiful center console adds character to the front row with a dramatic dip. Throughout the XC40's interior, you can find equipment like tall air vents, a climate management system, an easy-grip shifting knob, powered and heated seating, smart device integration, a heated steering wheel, a navigation system, and other equipment. In the 2020 Lexus NX, on the other hand, the gear shifter is placed at an angle where the console meets the center stack. The climate management equipment and a few other features are accessible on a modest platform with a sharp edge. The color display screen floats above this angled surface. A hands-free liftgate, a heated steering wheel, smart device integration, and other equipment are available for the 2020 NX.


Many of the XC40's advanced safety technologies are found across most or all trims as standard items. This crossover SUV's many protective features include oncoming lane mitigation, road sign information, run-off mitigation, private locking, adaptive cruise control, and others. The 2020 Lexus NX may come with safety equipment like hill start assist, airbags, a vehicle proximity notification system, LED cornering lamps, smart stop tech, and other items.
