The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.2
8.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2009 Volvo XC70 combines the body of Volvo’s large V70 station wagon with more rugged styling cues and a taller stance—resulting in a more carlike alternative to mid-size sport-utility vehicles. The 2008 Acura MDX has a little more passion than most larger SUVs, with no less practicality.
