2015 Acura TLX vs Volvo S60 T6 Mashup Drag Race: FWD vs AWD - YouTube

The guys at TFL took the time to film the 2015 Acura TLX with a V6 drag racing the 2015 Volvo S60 T6.

The TLX is running on a 3.5L V6 that makes 290 horsepower @6,200 rpm and 267 lb-ft of torque @ 4,500 rpm.

Meanwhile, the S60 is running on Volvo's new supercharged and turbocharged 2.0L I4 with 302 horsepower @ 5,700 rom and 295 lb-ft @2,100 rpm.

Before watching the video, which vehicle do you think is going to take it?

I saw this posted somewhere else. The thing to take in is that the altitude was 5,200 ft. The Volvo had a supercharger. The TLX had a difficult time breathing.


One comment summed it up...


The only thing that was proven here was a Volvo at 5,000+ ft of altitude can (barely) beat an Acura TLX at altitude. If anything, it assures me that at sea level the results would be quite different.

I would think weight is a factor

Tlx is 3748 for Tech
Volvo T6 is 3528 lbs or 6 percent lighter
