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 2009 Buick Enclave takes American-made luxury crossovers into the realm where Lexus resides. Supremely spacious and stunning from some angles, the 2010 Lincoln MKT gets truly arresting with its EcoBoost turbo V-6.
