Which is the Right SUV For You?
Volvo XC90
COMFORT

In a luxury vehicle, you expect superior comfort. Both the Volvo XC90 and Acura MDX offer seating for seven passengers, so everyone should have space. Even in the back row, you’ll find that all your passengers will have the room they need to stretch out their legs and get comfortable.

Plus, both SUVs offer tons of interior amenities that can enhance the drive for both you and your passengers. No matter how long your drive is, everyone will be thankful for your top-notch interior.

Volvo XC90
Sumptuous Cabin Comforts

Each model comes with available leather seating for optimal comfort. The Volvo XC90 offers a standard 4-Zone Electronic Climate System to help everyone get cozy. The Acura MDX only offers a 3-zone climate control system.

Another luxury feature in the Volvo XC90 is the Crystal Gearshift Knob by Orrefors®. It’s a handcrafted piece of solid crystal that truly sets the XC90 apart. This is also your control to the 8-speed Geartronic™ automatic transmission, helping you maintain a smooth ride.

Volvo XC90
Top-Notch Audio

The Volvo XC90 has an available Bowers & Wilkins Premium Sound system with 19 speakers to, complementing a smooth ride with smooth tunes. An available ELS Studio® Premium Audio System can be found in the Acura MDX. At most, it offers 16 speakers, providing a less robust audio experience.

SAFETY

Another important quality of your luxury ride is advanced safety. The Volvo XC90 and Acura MDX both come with safety and driver-assistive features that can help. That way, you can feel secure and confident on your way to your destination. From standard features to available ones, you’ll want to check out what these two SUVs can do for you.

Volvo XC90
Safety that Sees Everything

Both vehicles include common features like Blind Spot Information System, Rear Cross-Traffic Alert, Lane Keeping System, and Adaptive Cruise Control. The Volvo XC90 also comes with the WHIPS™ Whiplash Protection System, which activates when a rear-end collision occurs.

The biggest difference here? The XC90 goes above and beyond with more advanced features like connected safety. The XC90 can transmit information about bad weather, hazards, or poor road conditions with other intelligently connected vehicles. The MDX, unfortunately, doesn’t convey this level of information.

Volvo XC90
PERFORMANCE

Both vehicles offer various engine options and can provide an available all-wheel drive system for even more controlled driving in tougher conditions. The all-wheel drive systems will also come in handy if you ever find yourself taking the road less traveled by. However, performance isn’t just about control. It’s also about efficiency. Which SUV will prove to be a fuel-saver?
