2021 Acura RDX vs 2021 Volvo XC60

Serving Ridgeland, MS

Are you searching for a larger SUV that is packed with premium features? The 2021 Acura RDX and the 2021 Volvo XC60 are two-row models that sit in the midsize luxury crossover SUV class. While both of these vehicles have their strengths, the RDX is the more affordable option. With this in mind, which of these crossover SUVs offers actual value without skimping on the pampering features and robust capabilities you expect?


The RDX is a striking model with the perfect balance of confident angles and sultry curves. With sharp styling through the pentagon-shaped grille and the bejeweled headlights, the RDX gets ample attention on the road. In comparison, the 2021 Volvo CX60 has stronger linear elements in its design. These elements include flatter surfaces through the profile and relatively level side accents. These premium models are available with fog lamps, a power liftgate, heated side mirrors, and other desired items.


Inches matter in the cabin of a crossover SUV, so you may be pleased to learn that the RDX edges above the XC60 throughout most of the interior dimensions. From a design perspective, the RDX is stunningly modern. The premium materials are combined with a flowing dashboard design that trends into the center stack. In comparison, the XC60’s interior is traditional, with a tall display screen flanked by air vents in the center stack and horizontal elements across the rest of the dashboard.


Despite the XC60’s lower price, the 2021 Acura RDX outperforms it. The RDX is equipped with a turbo I-4, 2.0-liter engine. It puts out 272 horsepower, which is compared to 250 horsepower from the XC60’s turbo I-4 engine. The RDX also has a superior torque rating and slightly better fuel economy. With other differences in these crossover’s mechanical features and abilities, a test drive comparison should be your next step.
