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 2016 Cadillac SRX smooths out the road ahead with a luxurious ride, smooth V-6 power, and the mixed blessing of touchscreen controls. The new 2016 Lexus RX is edgier and more focused than before—more of a style-conscious statement of indulgence—when your luxury car also has to be a very practical everyday driver.
