The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.8
7.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2014 Acura RDX offers a relatively sporty look and driving feel, as well as a quiet, comfortable interior and top-notch safety; but features or flair it's no standout. The 2014 Nissan Murano is stylish and refined, but lacks some of the space and efficiency found in competitors.
