2018 Acura RDX vs 2018 Volvo XC60

At Montano Acura here in Albuquerque, we know how stressful the car-buying process can be. You'll spend countless hours researching, comparing, and then choosing the vehicle that will best suit your family's needs. In order to help make the process a little easier, we've decided to do the comparisons for you! Today, we're going to take a look at the versatile, capable, and innovative 2018 Acura RDX. This crossover features both a front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive powertrain allowing you to choose the one that will fit your lifestyle the best. Both of these powertrains are paired with the 3.5L i-VTEC® V6 engine to provide an exhilarating drive every time you climb inside.

This powerful engine has an all-aluminum construction, a hollow camshaft, and many other weight-saving features to give you better handling with a lighter engine. In addition to being lighter, this engine is also incredibly efficient. A refined Variable Cylinder Management system helps to shut off unused cylinders while at cruising speeds, which in turn improves your gas mileage while driving on the highway. The 3.5L V6 also provides all the power you could ever want in your crossover with 279 horsepower and an enviable 252 lb-ft of torque, making it at the pinnacle of both efficiency and power.

While the 2018 Acura RDX and the 2018 Volvo XC60 were similar in many different ways, there were a handful of areas where the XC60 wasn't able to keep up with the 2018 RDX. While heated seats don't seem like a big deal here in New Mexico, we do occasionally experience a chilly morning or evening where they will definitely come in handy. The standard memory driver's seats are sure to become a favorite for anyone who shares their RDX with anyone else. Simply press a button to have your seat and mirrors automatically adjust back to the exact way you like them.
