The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.8
8.4
TCC’s Bottom Line
Safety and comfort—and advanced tech features—never get short shrift in the 2010 Volvo S80, but not even a V-8 and all-wheel drive makes it a serious sport sedan. The 2010 Acura RL offers lots of features and strong safety. Performance takes a backseat in the 2010 RL-but technology and durability certainly don't.
