The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.0
7.4
TCC’s Bottom Line
The biggest MINI, the Countryman adds crossover flexibility to the lineup without diluting the fun-to-drive factor too much. The 2013 Acura RDX improves on the sporty crossover theme with refined ride quality, more features, and better fuel economy.
