The Car Connection's Take

TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2010 Acura MDX still finds ways to improve—though the new grille, steering feel, and USB/Bluetooth omissions are out of character. With a diesel option and a softer silhouette, the 2011 Audi Q7 does its part to tame the SUV bad-boy image. The swinging style sets an audacious mood—and the 2011 Lincoln MKT backs it up with turbo V-6 thrust.
