The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.3
6.8
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 GMC Acadia is a solid, if not stand-out choice among mid-size crossovers with seating for up to seven.
