The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.0
8.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
If you want the driving experience of a sports sedan but need the versatility of a wagon, the 2010 Mazda CX-7 remains one of the better choices. The 2008 Acura RDX gets its edge from turbo power and crisp handling, but it can feel a little nervous and cramped.
