2014 Acura RLX vs. 2015 Volvo S80 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Acura RLX than the Volvo S80. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Acura RLX and the Volvo S80 in the front seats.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Acura RLX as you will with the Volvo S80, as they get the same number of miles per 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). The Acura RLX is somewhat more expensive than the Volvo S80. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Acura RLX and the Volvo S80 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Acura RLX is about the same width as the Volvo S80. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Acura RLX, which is slightly longer than the Volvo S80.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the Acura RLX doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Volvo S80.

Handling
The Acura RLX has about the same turning radius as the Volvo S80, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Acura RLX is somewhat more powerful than the Volvo S80.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Acura RLX and the Volvo S80. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries into the Acura RLX as you will in the Volvo S80.

Warranty
The Acura RLX comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Volvo S80.
