The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.4
8.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2011 Acura RL lives up to its flagship status in the Acura lineup with top-notch tech features and long-haul comfort, but charm comes up missing. The 2011 Volvo S80 is safe and secure, fashion-forward, and just right for affluent families.
