2016 Volvo XC90 vs Acura MDX

Serving Tallahassee, Valdosta, Thomasville, Quincy, Bainbridge

Two luxury cars receive much of the attention within the luxury crossover SUV segment leading up to the 2016 introduction of both models. The 2016 Volvo XC90 and Acura MDX have already received rave reviews from automotive review websites, such as Edmunds and Car Connection. Yet, one review captures the reasons why the 2016 Volvo XC90 exceeds the quality offered by the 2016 Acura MDX. As the Auto Express review clearly states, "The new Volvo XC90 is one of the best SUVs you can buy, with quality, efficiency, space, comfort, and, of course, safety." Volvo excels in the design and construction of the 2016 XC90 by upgrading the body structure to enhance both aerodynamics and exterior style. Less wind resistance during turbulent Tallahassee, Florida thunderstorms and a more powerful engine separates the 2016 Volvo XC90 from the 2016 Acura MDX.

Performance

The 2016 Acura MDX 3.5-liter, six-cylinder engine generates 290 horsepower. Volvo engineers have created a smaller engine that delivers more power and acceleration. The 2016 Volvo XC90 generates 316 horsepower from a 2.0-liter engine. Part of the reason for the smaller engine delivering more power than the larger 2016 MDX engine lies in the enhanced aerodynamics of the 2016 Volvo XC90. According to automotive expert reviews, the eight-gear automatic transmission that manages the power for the 2016 Volvo XC90 does a much better job of transitioning between the gears than the 2016 MDX nine-speed automatic transmission. Volvo offers a hybrid version of the 2016 XC90 that generates an incredible 400 horsepower.

Interior

Capital Volvo promotes the 2016 XC90 as an affordable luxury crossover SUV that boasts a refined interior. Volvo designers combine carbon fiber and real wood accents to create a sleek interior appearance highlighted by incredibly soft leather seats. The seven-seat crossover SUV provides more passenger room than the passenger room provided by the 2015 Acura MDX. Additional passenger space makes the 2016 Volvo XC90 the perfect family vehicle for traveling across the Sunshine State. With plenty of cargo space, the 2016 XC90 matches the amount of cargo space provided by Acura's 2016 MDX.

Safety

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) perennially awards the Volvo XC90 with the organization's Top Safety Pick. Volvo also received the highest five star safety rating from the National Traffic Highway Safety Administration (NTHSA) for the 2015 rendition of the XC90.
