2014 Acura RDX vs. 2014 Volvo XC60 Review

Comparison Review


Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Acura RDX than in the Volvo XC60. The Acura RDX offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Volvo XC60, making it a little more comfortable for the driver and front passenger.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Acura RDX as you will with the Volvo XC60, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a tank of gas.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). Clearly, the Acura RDX is a better financial choice over the Volvo XC60, when considering MSRP. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. Both the Acura RDX and the Volvo XC60 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Acura RDX is about the same width as the Volvo XC60. When looking at overall length, the Acura RDX takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Volvo XC60.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the Acura RDX transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Volvo XC60.

Handling
The Acura RDX has the same turning radius as the Volvo XC60, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Volvo XC60 is clearly the choice over the Acura RDX for pulling heavy loads. The Acura RDX has a little more horsepower than the Volvo XC60.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Acura RDX and the Volvo XC60. The Acura RDX has less cargo space than the Volvo XC60, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The Acura RDX comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Volvo XC60.
