The 2020 Acura MDX and 2020 Volvo XC90 are two remarkable SUVs that offer plenty of sought-after benefits. Consumers can expect to receive plenty of seating, a ton of cargo space and a lot of premium power under the hood. Let’s keep reading to find out comparisons between key features on these two SUVs.


Aerodynamic body panels and styling make the 2020 Acura MDX a classy looking vehicle to own. Equipped with Jewel Eye LED Headlights, the MDX displays elegance while providing a brighter, whiter headlight beam. These LED lights further enhance appearance and visibility on the side mirrors, taillights, rear license, and center high mount stop lights. The Acura MDX comes in three different drivetrains including Front-Wheel Dirve, Super Handling All-Wheel Drive (SH-AWD), and Sport Hybrid SH-AWD with customizable trims offering additional technology and entertainment packages. The 2020 Volvo XC90’s headlights are inspired by a hammer shape and are from Scandinavian design. The Volvo XC90 comes in two different drivetrains including front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive and a choice of three different trims: the R-Design, Momentum and Inscription with each offering customizable options.


The 2020 Acura MDX is designed to provide a large interior space for passenger comfort. The MDX includes 3 rows of seating that can accommodate 6 to 7 adults depending on customization of either bench seating, or Captain’s chairs for the second row. Another great feature in the Acura is the One-Touch Smart Slide access that allows passengers in the back seat to get in and out easier. The 2020 Volvo XC90’s standard option is lacking heated front seats, a Multi-View Rear Camera, 12V power outlet, and has only 85.7 cubic feet of cargo space compared to the 90.9 cubic feet of space in the 2020 MDX.

Advanced Technology

The 2020 MDX is designed to combine the latest technology along with power and performance inside a luxury vehicle. The 8-inch LED infotainment center delivers SiriusXM Satellite Radio, Bluetooth Streaming Audio, Siri Eyes Free, Apple CarPlay Integration, and Android Auto Integration. The Acura MDX includes AcuraWatch technology that hosts a suite of safety features like Lane Keeping Assist (LKA), Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC), Road Departure Mitigation System (RDM), Collision Mitigation Braking System (CMBS), Forward Collision Warning (FCW) System, and Next-Generation Advanced Compatibility Engineering (ACE) body structure which are all designed to help drivers avoid hazards and have enhanced protection on the road.

One of the main features missing on the Volvo XC90 is the Next-Generation Advanced Compatibility Engineering (ACE) body structure. This build design utilizes a network of frontal vehicle elements to increase both occupant protection and crash energy displacement.


The 2020 Acura MDX is a great SUV that outclasses its competitors in many ways. If this sounds like the type of vehicle you're interested in, contact Acura of Brookfield for a test drive.
