The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.0
7.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2014 MINI Countryman puts the brand's fun-to-drive spirit into the body of a versatile compact crossover. The 2014 Acura RDX offers a relatively sporty look and driving feel, as well as a quiet, comfortable interior and top-notch safety; but features or flair it's no standout.
