TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2013 Acura MDX is one of the most satisfying and enjoyable vehicles to drive, if you must have three rows of seats. The 2013 Audi Q7 is a premium, lavishly-appointed three-row utility vehicle with great on-road manners and capability, plus towing ability--without the off-road style or pretense. The 2013 Infiniti JX offers families appealing style, decent fuel economy, ease of access, and the right mix of features.
