Interior Comfort: 2019 Volvo S60 Bests Acura TLX

Drivers have come to expect a certain level of technology and features on vehicles like these, and while the 2019 Volvo S60 and 2019 Acura TLX offer comparable levels of luxurious amenities, we think it will be hard to get comfortable in the TLX. The Volvo S60 simply offers more space where it counts:

  • Front Headroom: the Volvo has 37.4 inches to the Acura's 37.2 inches
  • Rear Headroom: the S60 has 37.2 inches to the TLX's 36.7 inches
  • Rear Legroom: the TLX comes up short again at 34.5 inches vs. Volvo's 35.2 inches

Low rear head- and legroom means a rear seat that's designed more for young children than adults. Volvo also provides Schaumburg drivers with access to some features you won't find on an Acura, including a premium Bowers & Wilkins sound system, the Sensus Connect system, and standard voice controls.

S60 Performance Specs Lead the TLX

Volvo refuses to compromise on entry-level models, and that's especially true for the S60. So while the TLX may carry a standard four-cylinder under the hood, its 206 hp isn't quite fitting for a luxury sedan. Not only does the S60 offer a 400-hp plug-in hybrid, it brings plenty to its standard trim:

  • A 2.0L turbocharged four-cylinder powers the 2019 Volvo S60, rated at 250 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque.
  • The Acura 2.4L four-cylinder manages just 206 hp and 182 lb-ft of torque.
