2017 Acura ILX vs 2017 Volvo S60 Vehicle Style

The Acura ILX and the Volvo S60 both deliver impeccable style to their respective drivers. Each vehicle features a classic body design, but the Acura ILX offers sharper edges with refined curves. The Volvo S60, although stylish, tends to blend in among other sedans. The front grille of the Acura ILX has a commanding appearance, while the grille of the Volvo S60 seems a bit lackluster and outdated.

Acura ILX Interior vs Volvo S60 Interior

Both the Acura ILX and the Volvo S60 offer enough space for five passengers in their two rows of seating. While both vehicles offer different levels of comfort in their seating materials, there's a clear difference in offered passenger space between these two sedans. The Acura ILX takes the lead in legroom, featuring 42.3 inches for front passengers and 34 inches for passengers in the rear. The Volvo S60 only offers 41.9 inches of legroom in the front and 33.5 inches of legroom for rear passengers. The Acura ILX also has a slight advantage on trunk space, offering 12.3 cubic feet, which is a little more spacious than the 12 cubic feet offered in the trunk of the Volvo S60.
