Research and Compare the Volvo S60 and the Acura ILX near The Woodlands

If you've been pining for a new compact luxury sedan, but aren't quite sure which one will provide you with the right blend of attributes, then you're in for a treat, because we're here to show you just how amazing the new Volvo S60 is. This new Volvo sedan offers new car shoppers looking for luxury, safety, and more around Spring, TX with so much to love. In fact, when you compare the S60 to some of its main competitors - the new Acura ILX included - you'll begin to see why so many people from Conroe to Tomball and beyond are switching to Volvo in droves. So, without further delay, here's how the S60 compares to the ILX.

Exterior Style

Style is often a subjective aspect of why someone purchases or leases a car. That said, the new Volvo S60 sports sleek styling that boasts near-universal appeal. From its list of available colors - passion red, electric silver metallic, and ice white among them - to its clean, minimalistic design, the Volvo S60 proves itself to be sophisticated and sleek where other vehicles are arguably over-styled.

Interior Amenities and Space

Inside the cabin of the S60, you are treated again, to clean lines. Squared-off vents and motifs make for a clean interior, with a floating center stack with symmetrical buttons only adding to this Volvo's appeal. Plus, the S60 boasts seats that have been designed with ergonomics and safety top-of-mind. In comparison, the Acura ILX, while modern in its appearance, has an arguably more busy interior feel.

Infotainment and Connectivity Technologies

Every Volvo S60 boasts a 7-inch touchscreen multimedia interface that makes navigating your favorite multimedia into light work. Bluetooth streaming is standard, as are eight speakers. Plus, you can upgrade your infotainment with niceties such as navigation and Harmon-Kardon sound. The Acura ILX, by comparison, comes standard with a 5-inch infotainment interface with seven speakers, though you can upgrade to get navigation and more.

Performance and Fuel Efficiency

The Volvo S60 does more than the Acura ILX, with less. The standard engine in the Volvo is a punchy 2.0-liter turbocharged four cylinder. The horsepower? 240. In contrast, choosing the Acura ILX means opting for a 2.4-liter four-cylinder that makes a comparatively less 201 horsepower. Thinking you'll save on gas with the Acura? Not so. In fact, the Volvo achieves an EPA-estimated 25 mpg in the city and 36 mpg around town, while the Acura gets an EPA-estimated 25 mpg in the city and only 35 mpg on the highway. What's more, the Acura only offers one engine choice, while the Volvo offers a more powerful 302-horsepower four cylinder too on T6 models, or a 362-horspower engine on S60 Polestar models.

Safety Features and Accolades

Volvo has long been synonymous with safety, and for good reason. Volvo cars throughout the years have been as safe as if not safer than rivals. The same is true for the new Volvo S60, which was awarded a Top Safety Pick+ designation for the model year. The Acura ILX cannot brag of the same accomplishment. What's more, the S60 comes standard with Volvo Safety City - a system that watched out for pedestrians and other vehicles and can even apply your brakes if necessary - while the Acura ILX comes standard with just a rearview camera.
