The 2021 Volvo XC60 is one of the many luxury compact SUVs that really knows how to impress car lovers out there. The ride is definitely a great addition to the garages of car buyers in Manhattan because of its long list of standard safety amenities. The cushioned ride also offers comfortable seating configuration for passengers.

In the case of the 2021 Lexus RX 350, there is not much to expect. This one may have a long list of features, but they are not as reliable as those offered by the Volvo.

Design & Style

The 2021 Volvo XC60 has a space of 22.4 cubic feet when the front and rear seats are packed. This measures at over 63 cubic feet once the rear seats are not in use. The seats are spacious and comfortable to accommodate five passengers. Top-notch materials are used to construct not just the cabin, but the sporty exterior as well.

The 2021 Lexus RX 350, on the other hand, is not as stylish as that of the XC60. There may be some upscale materials in there, but it still lacks the charm of its Volvo counterpart. There are two rows of seats promising to seat five, but the back area is best left for three kids to avoid body pain after a long ride.

Technology & Safety

The 2021 XC60 is praised for using a reliable nine-inch touch screen in its Sensus infotainment system. Other features that you will love along the line of technology are its 10 speakers, navigation, and smartphone integration. It also has a panoramic sunroof, dual-zone automatic climate control, HD radio, satellite radio, and Bluetooth as part of the standard. For your safety, you can count on lane keep assist, lane departure warning, run-off road mitigation and protection, rearview camera, and forward collision waring, among others.

The 2021 RX 350, meanwhile, uses an eight-inch touch screen display to support functions for its infotainment system. This one can be upgraded to a bigger touch screen, but once you have the setup, expect that the Remote Touch Controller becomes disappointing to use. It also has a long list of standard driver aids, but it misses on having front and rear parking sensors which its competitors have, including the XC60.


The 2021 Volvo XC60 is given a turbo-four base engine that allows it to spruce up to 250 horses. Another variation supercharges the turbocharged engine to produce 316 horsepower. The hybrid version, on the other hand, gives off 400 horsepower. For the RX350, the V6, 3.5-liter engine only gives off 295 horsepower.

The Bottom Line

The 2021 Volvo XC60 is handsome, sporty, and modern. It has a long list of reliable features plus a powerful engine lineup to boost its other offerings. It defeats the RX 350, no doubt.
