Comparison Review

Comfort
The Acura RDX offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Volvo XC60, with comparable head- and legroom. The Acura RDX will be popular with taller drivers and passengers in the front seat, due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Volvo XC60.

Convenience
With the Volvo XC60, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Acura RDX, due to its tank size and 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Acura RDX will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Volvo XC60.

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.

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

Performance

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