The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.4
8.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2009 Acura MDX has a little more appeal to young families who appreciate top safety, useful technology, and Acura's low depreciation. The 2008 Audi Q7 puts a sport-ute premium on its beautifully made interior, seven-passenger seating, and sedanlike acceleration.
