The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.6
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 Volvo XC70 Cross Country is the brand's last wagon-based crossover, a tough and utilitarian vehicle—but despite new fuel-efficient powertrains, the design is starting to show its age.
