The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.2
8.2
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. The 2012 Volvo XC70 crossover offers safety and wagon-based practicality; it's a useful alternative to taller, blockier crossovers and sport-utility vehicles.
