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 Volvo XC60 carries on the tradition of Volvo wagons--even their top-of-the-class safety--only in a modern, fashion-conscious crossover. The 2013 Volvo XC70 hits a family sweet spot as a vehicle that packs the accommodations of a station wagon and advanced safety-tech features into the chunkier, tougher image and ability of a utility vehicle.
