Shopping for a car is somewhat tiresome, especially if you have to be faced with a lot of choices. If you have trimmed down your list, however, to include only your top two choices, making a decision will be a whole lot easier. All you need to do is compare one from the other. If your list includes the 2019 Volvo XC60 and the 2019 Acura RDX, this comparison will be of help.

Design & Style

When you take a look at the 2019 Volvo XC60, you will easily notice that it has been gifted with a lot of great things on the outside. The 18-inch wheels are defined by its rims. The front part, including the grille assembly, has those set of LED headlights. Inside the car, you will also see how the cabin has been constructed using only the best materials. Space wise, it will never disappoint too. Even with the inclusion of a panoramic sunroof, headroom is not compromised.

For the 2019 Acura RDX, you will notice that it has been gifted with bigger 19-inch wheels. Do not be overwhelmed by this because you need to drive tougher with this will size. Inside the car, you will find ergonomic components all around. However, with the rear seats, cargo space has been compromised.

Technology & Safety

There are plenty of modern technologies in the 2019 Volvo XC90. Topping the list is the inclusion of Bowers and Wilkins audio which is known for its advanced set of features. It is easy pairing the infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as well. Safety-wise, you can rely on the semiautonomous driving feature called Pilot Assist. This is on top of other reliable advanced safety aids like driver attention alert, pedestrian and large animal detection, and forward collision warning.

In the case of the 2019 Acura RDX, you will also find the 10.2-inch touchscreen display remarkable. However, you should be familiar with how the Touchpad Interface works first to fully enjoy these features. Try the 12-speaker ELS audio system too. Standard driver aids are also available. All others require an upgrade for a price.


One of the many reasons why people love the 2019 Volvo XC60 is the power that its four-cylinder, the 2.0-liter engine gives in order to operate up to 250 horses at a torque of 258lb-ft. It is also capable of reaching a total of 22mpg and 29mpg for city and highway driving. In the case of the four-cylinder, 2.0-liter engine in the 2019 Acura RDX, results may be pegged to 280lb-ft of torque and 272 horsepower. When mileage is considered, it only comes up with 21mpg for city driving and 27mpg for highway driving.

The Bottom Line

A powerful car like the 2019 Volvo XC60 definitely deserves your attention when you are looking for your next car. It is beautiful, and tech-rich, thus defeating the 2019 Acura RDX in all aspects.
