There are lots of reasons Barnstead drivers would pick a 2018 Volvo XC60 over a 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLE. The Volvo SUV:

  • Costs thousands less to start
  • Gets better fuel-efficiency
  • Offers more appealing standard technology features
Discover all that makes the XC60 exceptional before you explore the interior and take it for a test drive at Lovering Volvo Cars Concord.


The all-new XC60 proves that a true luxury vehicle does not have to come at a premium price:

  • The starting MSRP of the 2018 Volvo XC60 is $41,500, and even at the top of the trim ladder it's priced at an accessible $48,700.
  • The Mercedes-Benz GLE has a starting price of $52,200, and if you opt to drive the nicest version around Hillsborough it will cost an astounding $109,700.

Thanks to the pairing of a turbocharger and a smaller motor, the standard Volvo gets surprising fuel economy for a powerful crossover:

  • Efficiency is rated at an EPA-estimated 21 mpg city and 27 mpg highway on the introductory version, and a plug-in hybrid variation is even able to run for limited distances using no gas at all.
  • The best fuel-efficiency you can get out of the GLE is 18 mpg city and 23 mpg highway.

The XC60 costs less to start, but it's actually more amply and excitingly equipped than the Mercedes-Benz:

  • The Momentum trim is equipped with bold-looking LED headlights and taillights along with integrated roof rails to extend your carrying capacity. On the inside, you will find supple leather upholstery, a 9-inch touchscreen display, and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone app integration.
  • The GLE 350 comes with halogen head and taillights and does not have roof rails. The upholstery is made of simulated leather, and the touchscreen only measures 8 inches. Smartphone app integration is available but only if you pay for an options package.
