The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.7
7.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
Consider the 2018 Acura RDX if you’re after a budget-conscious crossover that rides and drives well. The 2018 GMC Terrain tucks into a jazzy new body, and boasts a great new turbo-4 drivetrain, but needs to spread its safety message farther, and wider.
