Volvo S60

These luxury sports sedans are known for the immense power they provide drivers like you. When you’re craving a thrilling drive on the highway, both the Volvo S60 and the Acura TLX might cross your mind. We’re here to see which one will keep you on the road longer.

A Knockout Performance

Both the Volvo S60 and the Acura TLX bring plenty of power with their base configurations. When it comes to which sedan will take you the farthest, though, the Volvo S60 has the clear advantage. It boasts an EPA-estimated 26 city and 35 highway MPG, so you can keep the fun going.1

The Acura TLX is only capable of an EPA-estimated 22 city and 31 highway MPG.

Speed Into the Future

A hybrid offers two advantages: the enhanced power of both gas and electricity and added efficiency. The TLX doesn’t offer a hybrid powertrain, but the S60 does. The hybrid T8 powertrain of the S60 boasts a whopping 455 horsepower, which outperforms the 355 horsepower of the most powerful TLX.

The Volvo S60 T8 eAWD (electric all-wheel drive) also boasts an impressive EPA-estimated 69 combined MPGe (miles per gallon of gasoline-equivalent).2 You can say so long to all the Acura TLX sedans filling up at the gas station as you whiz by.

When was the last time you were at the tailor? They made measurements to specifically fit your body, and your clothes came back fitting better than ever. That begs the question: Which of these sedans is more tailored to you?

Interiors Tailored To You

The 2022 Volvo S60 can keep everyone at their desired temperature with the available 4-Zone Automatic Climate Control, while the TLX is only available with a Dual-Zone Automatic Climate Control system. They’re both available with the following features, depending on the trim you choose:

  • Leather upholstery
  • Leather-wrapped steering wheel
  • Wood trim
  • Power-adjustable front seats
Next-Level Luxury

A crystal gear selector knob by Orrefors® is only available with the Volvo S60. It takes the Scandinavian luxury of this sedan to the next level, giving you a work of art to control the 8-speed Geartronic™ automatic transmission.

Volvo S60

Whether you're racing down the street or cruising along at a relaxing pace, you’ll want to be sure you’ll get to your destination safe and sound. With plenty of smart safety features available, the Volvo S60 and Acura TLX are great safety choices.

Dynamic Safety Systems

Peace of mind comes naturally in these sedans. They offer a wide array of smart safety features to help you stay confident behind the wheel. In fact, both models come standard with:

  • Lane Keeping Aid
  • Road Sign Information
  • Rear-View Camera
Safer in the S60

One big difference is the BLIS™ (blind spot information system) and Cross Traffic Alert. They come standard with the S60, so you’ll be made aware when another vehicle is lurking in one of those hard-to-see places. The same systems are only available with the TLX as an upgrade.

Finally, there’s the WHIPS™ Whiplash Injury Protection System, a Volvo-exclusive safety innovation that comes standard with the S60. If your vehicle is hit from behind, it moves the entire front backrest and head restraint with the body to better support the neck and spine while significantly reducing the risk of whiplash injury.
