TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2015 Acura MDX continues to offer an attractive blend of content, comfort, and entertainment for the entire family–including the driver. The 2015 BMW X5 is a handsome, capable, tech-filled vehicle for the shopper who wants a luxury SUV. Not everyone loves the unique look of the MKT, but if it's your style there's plenty to like, including a muscular available turbo V-6, plenty of infotainment tech, and a comfortable, spacious interior.
