The 2014 BMW X5 and the 2015 Volvo XC60 T6 are both tall crossovers that don’t compete against each other but they are similar in one very important way. They both use twice the usual amount of forced induction with the 2014 BMW X5 being turbocharged while the 2015 Volvo XC60 is super turbocharged. So which is faster in a straight line? In a fun TFLcar drag race we decided to pit the two tall crossovers against each other to see if the super-turbo or the turbo-turbo is faster.
Nicole Wakelin fell in love with cars as a teenager when she got to go for a ride in a Ferrari. It was red and it was fast and that was all that mattered. Game over. She considers things a bit more carefully now, but still has a weakness for fast, beautiful cars. Nicole also writes for NerdApproved and GeekMom.
