The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.6
8.2
8.0
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 2010 Subaru Outback isn’t especially swoopy or fast, and it hardly carries a luxe image. But with more interior refinement and new features, along with rutted-trail ability that sidelines tough-looking rivals, this Subaru will win more fans. The 2010 Volvo V70 and XC70 wagons offer lots of practicality and safety, providing buyers with an alternative to regular mid-size SUVs.
