TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2013 Acura RDX improves on the sporty crossover theme with refined ride quality, more features, and better fuel economy. The 2013 Audi Q5 is one of the more carlike crossovers, with elegant execution, smart high-tech features, and very good passenger space. The 2013 Volvo XC60 carries on the tradition of Volvo wagons--even their top-of-the-class safety--only in a modern, fashion-conscious crossover.
