TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2012 Acura MDX is not just comfortable and family-friendly; it's one of the most enjoyable three-row crossovers to drive. With a smooth new engine and a rich, uniquely American interior, the 2012 Cadillac SRX appeals to those who want a lot of luxury and flair but don't require driving excitement. The 2012 Lincoln MKX lives up to the promise of top-notch American luxury, with some of the newest luxury and tech features as its controversial showpieces.
