The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating

8.2
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 Infiniti QX60 has a rich look and excellent interior space. Suspension changes this year aim to improve dynamics but miss the mark.
