2015 Volvo XC60 vs. 2015 Acura MDX Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Volvo XC60 offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Acura MDX, with comparable head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Volvo XC60 and the Acura MDX.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Volvo XC60 as you will with the Acura MDX, 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Volvo XC60 will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Acura MDX. 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 Volvo XC60 and the Acura MDX have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Volvo XC60 is much slimmer than the Acura MDX, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the Volvo XC60, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Acura MDX.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque engine, the Volvo XC60 doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Acura MDX.

Handling
The Volvo XC60 has a larger turning radius than the Acura MDX, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
If you've got something you need to pull, the Volvo XC60 will do just as well as the Acura MDX, since they have about the same towing capacity. The Volvo XC60 has a little less horsepower than the Acura MDX.

Utility
The Volvo XC60 has less seating than the Acura MDX, making the Acura MDX the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries in the Volvo XC60 as you will in the Acura MDX.

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