The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.2
8.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2013 GMC Acadia's chiseled, rugged look masks a family-friendly cabin and smooth street performance. The 2013 Mazda CX-9 gets a sharper, even sportier look, as well as new active-safety features, and should remain one of the most exciting and engaging vehicles with three rows of seating.
