The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating

TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2016 Acura MDX remains one of the best luxury three-row SUVs, but the benefits of its new nine-speed automatic are unclear. The benchmark of mid-size luxury SUVs, the 2016 BMW X5 offers handsome looks, a choice of powertrains, an abundance of tech features, sporty on-road dynamics, and even some off-road capability. The 2016 Lincoln MKT has a polarizing style for a crossover wagon; combined with its comfortable, super-spacious interior and muscular powertrains, it's still an outside pick, especially against other luxury crossovers.
