The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.5
7.2
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 Buick Enclave is a good-looking SUV for families and one of the better-aging GM cars in recent memory.
