The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating

8.4
TCC’s Bottom Line
With a few notable flaws in styling and features, the 2011 Acura MDX still impresses us with its friendly handling and gutsy power. The 2010 Volvo XC90 has aged gracefully and now is more feature-packed than ever; however, its poor fuel economy tarnishes an otherwise superb vehicle.
