The Car Connection's Take

TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2017 Acura MDX is one of the best-driving, most technologically advanced three-row luxury crossovers, and a new Sport Hybrid model and active suspension should only add to that reputation. The 2017 Audi Q7 gets a rakish new sport-wagon look, a finely detailed, tech-savvy interior, and serious chassis advancements underneath—including a dramatic weight loss, available rear-wheel steering, and a plug-in hybrid version. The styling may be polarizing, but the comfortable, spacious interior and muscular turbo V-6 still make the MKT an outside pick against luxury crossovers.
