TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2018 Acura MDX should be atop many lists for luxury buyers looking for spacious family crossovers. Others may do bits and pieces better, but the MDX offers a complete—and well-considered package. The 2018 Cadillac XT5 is a solid luxury crossover, but so are its rivals. Shop carefully. The Lexus RX makes a style-conscious statement like never before, and it hasn’t lost its grip on good manners.
