The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating

7.3
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2020 Acura MDX is a stately three-row family crossover that has aged well. The 2020 GMC Acadia gains a turbo-4, but falls behind new three-row rivals. The 2020 Hyundai Palisade is a value-packed three-row crossover coming to a garage near you.
