There is a lot of things to love in the 2018 Volvo XC60 and that of the 2018 Lexus RX. This is perhaps one of those reasons behind why you have considered them as important cars to form part of your list of considerations while you are looking for the car of your dreams. Get to know them even more and discover what they can offer through this comparison.

Design & Style

One of the many reasons why people love the 2018 Volvo XC60 is the impression it makes from the outside. Oozing with a level of confidence that is backed by its tough exterior, you will surely want to have your hands on the steering wheel of this car. Inside it, you will see the comfort it brings with its spacious legroom, ready to accommodate the needs of passengers of various shapes and sizes. Of course, it also has a breathtaking appeal. This is all thanks to the excellent quality of materials used to construct the cabin.

The 2018 Lexus RX also has its fair share of great looks on the outside, with 18-inch wheels and automatic LED headlights making it look more modern too. Inside it, you will find enough room for comfort so that you can stretch easily during a long ride. However, the versatile cargo space is missing in this car. Also, the presence of large touchscreen displays on the rear is not commendable at all.

Technology & Safety

On the technology and safety side, you will appreciate the fact that the 2018 Volvo XC60 has been gifted with premium audio that comes from Bowers and Wilkins. This works in line with a dependable infotainment system that also supports smartphone integration. For safety aids, you get to enjoy forward collision warning, blind spot monitoring, and the Pilot Assist feature, among others.

The 2018 Lexus RS, on the other hand, is equipped with standard technologies that you are looking for in a car. However, it will dismay you that other features like the inclusion of audiophile sound quality, heated surfaces, and panoramic sunroof will also mean additional cost on your part.


The 2018 Volvo XC60 gets enough power from its 2.0-liter, four-cylinder engine which is capable of maximizing results so that it can reach up to 250 horsepower and 258lb-ft of torque. As for the 2018 Lexus RX, you know that it should be capable of giving more with its 3.5-liter, V6 engine. It seems the engine is not enough because it can only reach up to as high as 267lb-ft of torque and 295 horsepower given that engine size.

The Bottom Line

Will you still have your eyes on the 2018 Lexus RX after reading this comparison? Knowing that the 2018 Volvo XC60 is better, it will be wise enough to just settle for the latter.
