The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.4
8.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2014 Acura MDX is more focused than ever on its mission of keeping the entire family comfortable, content, and entertained—and yes, that still includes the driver. The 2014 Volvo XC90 is a luxurious, smart choice for families with priorities on safety and comfort, though it isn't exactly cutting-edge anymore.
