2021 BMW 2-Series vs. 2021 Volvo V40


The idea behind the sporty 2021 BMW 2-Series was a sporty sedan is as much fun to drive as it is practical. In this, the designers at BMW succeeded. The 2021 2-Series comes standard with rear-wheel drive but those looking for a little more grip can opt for an all-wheel-drive variant. Regardless of the trim, you get a nimble sports sedan that is just as capable of handling everyday driving tasks.

The 2021 Volvo V40 is a fairly practical crossover that comes with a range of engine variants including a diesel-powered one. Economical and reliable, the 2021 V40 is also unlikely to get your blood racing. Here is a comparison between these two automobiles.

Design & Style

When it comes to sporty looks, there are few vehicles out there that can rival the 2021 BMW 2 -Series. With large wheel arches and an aggressive stance, the 2021 2-Series is guaranteed to turn head anywhere you go with it. The cabin has a premium feel to it and features a lot of high-quality materials in the upholstery and dashboard. Trunk space is generous, ensuring that the 2021 2-Series is a practical car as well.

The styling on the 2021 Volvo V40 is very unique, something that we have come to expect from Volvo. The 2021 V40 is sleek but not exactly sporty. Volvo enthusiasts will probably love the styling but most other people would see it as boxy. The interior is also uniquely designed but much of the interior build is exactly what you would expect from cars in this category.

Technology & Safety

When it comes to tech and safety, the 2021 2-Series comes with a host of features such as smartphone integration as well as real-time traffic monitoring. The 2021 2-Series also features a touchscreen display that is responsive and very intuitive.

When it comes to tech features, you get a variety of options in the 2021 Volvo V40. These include a 5-inch infotainment display which is not as responsive as that in the 2021 2-Series. Also included is Bluetooth connectivity. The 2021 V40 however lacks Android Auto or Apple CarPlay integration as standard, unlike the 2021 2-Series.


The 2021 BMW 2-Series is powered by a turbocharged four-cylinder engine that ensures that you will have all the power that you need when you push the gas pedal down. The ride is superb and handling is exactly what you would expect in a BMW sports sedan. For those looking for more power, BMW offers the 2021 2-Series with a three-liter variant that packs quite the punch.

When it comes to the 2021 Volvo V40, you get a variety of engines including a diesel variant. All these engines are very fuel-efficient although they lack the sporty feel that the 2-Series has. As with the styling, the single defining feature of the 2021 V40 performance is functionality. The 2021 V40’s ride dynamics are unlikely to excite driving enthusiasts.

The Bottom Line

While the 2021 Volvo V40 offers a composed ride, it lacks the sporty edge that defines the 2021 BMW 2-Series. This is a major letdown as vehicles in this category are defined by their sporty performance. The 2021 2-Series also offers better styling, cabin comfort, and tech features. This makes the 2021 2-Series the clear winner in this comparison.
