The 2019 Volvo XC60 captivates a lot of car buyers in Manhattan for its rugged look. This makes it a modern car that can truly bring anyone to tough terrains. The 2019 Lexus NX, on the other hand, is a bit laidback in terms of styling on the outside. Discover more about these two cars and see why the XC60 is highly favored by car lovers out there.

Design & Style

An athletic car that also impresses car lovers for its modernity, the 2019 Volvo XC60 has been solidly constructed by its maker. Those impressive LED headlights and taillights, and magnificent 18-inch wheels define the curves and edges outside it. Inside the car, there is more reason to freak out in excitement, knowing that it has been given the best quality materials for its class. Adding comfort on the part of the users is its spacious cabin.

Trying to make things more laidback is the less athletic 2019 Lexus NX. It does impress for providing front and rear seats that can accommodate five people of different ages, shapes, and sizes. The narrow windows and sloping roofline makes the cabin feel small for its users. Cargo space is limited for the car as well.

Technology & Safety

When it comes to technologies, there is also a lot to appreciate in the 2019 Volvo XC60. This one carries with it the Sensus Connect infotainment system that has a nine-inch touchscreen display. There is also support provided both for Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. For everyone's safety, there are plenty of features to take note of. One of them is the Pilot Assist which allows semiautonomous driving. Other safety aids include pedestrian and large animal detection, driver attention alert, and forward collision warning.

In the case of the 2019 Lexus NX, there is an 8-inch display with its infotainment system. It also has a USB port, a Bluetooth interface, a navigation system, and a satellite radio. There are plenty of frustrating aspects on these components, one being the fact that the infotainment system can only be used through the Remote Touch controller. There is no support for smartphone integration as well. Active safety features include a pre-collision system, rear cross traffic alert, and automatic braking.


The XC60 gets its power from a four-cylinder, 2.0-liter engine, whose results reach up to 250 horsepower and 258lb-ft of torque. The 2019 Lexus NX, on the other hand, only yields up to 235 horsepower for its four-cylinder, 2.0-liter engine. Fuel-efficiency wise, the 2019 Volvo XC60 wins over the NX. The former has a rating of 22/29mpg for city/highway driving, while the latter only has a rating of 21/28mpg.

The Bottom Line

With the power and fuel efficiency in the 2019 Volvo XC60, as well as the design and technologies found in it, there are plenty of reasons to love it. You should buy it over the 2019 Lexus NX.
