2015 Acura RLX vs. 2014 Chevrolet SS Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Chevrolet SS than the Acura RLX, due to its greater head- and legroom. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Acura RLX, drivers may find the Chevrolet SS a little roomier and somewhat more comfortable.

Convenience
With the Acura RLX you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Chevrolet SS, due to its larger tank size and better fuel economy.

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). The Acura RLX is somewhat more expensive than the Chevrolet SS. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. In this case, the Acura RLX will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Chevrolet SS.

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

Drivetrain
The Acura RLX has much less torque than the Chevrolet SS, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Acura RLX is significantly less powerful than the Chevrolet SS. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

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

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Acura RLX than that of the Chevrolet SS.
