TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2010 Acura RDX keeps its energetic personality intact-along with its slightly nervous feel-and gets a more fuel-frugal front-drive edition that's worth considering on price and gas mileage. The 2010 BMW X3 beats other luxury crossovers in handling and gutsy performance, but it's still less satisfying than BMW's own 3-Series wagon. The boldly styled 2010 Cadillac SRX is richly appointed, with more enthusiast appeal than other crossovers.
