Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will feel a little more squished in the Acura TLX than in the Volvo S60, due to the Acura TLX's smaller rear head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Acura TLX and the Volvo S60 in the front seats.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Acura TLX as you will with the Volvo S60, 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). Whether you pick the Acura TLX or the Volvo S60, it's going to cost you about the same. 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 TLX and the Volvo S60 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Acura TLX is about the same width as the Volvo S60. When looking at overall length, the Acura TLX takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Volvo S60.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the Acura TLX doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Volvo S60.

Handling
The Acura TLX has a larger turning radius than the Volvo S60, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Acura TLX has less horsepower than the Volvo S60, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Acura TLX and the Volvo S60. The Acura TLX has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the Volvo S60.

Warranty
The Acura TLX comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Volvo S60.
