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. The 2011 BMW X5 offers impressive handling and features, but lacks the styling and interior that makes competitors pop, while the X5 M offers nearly sports car levels of performance with all the utility of a standard X5. The 2010 Lincoln MKX lives up to its luxury aspirations, offering a classy take on American style.
