The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.2
7.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2019 Acura RDX takes a clean-sheet approach to sporty utility, and that makes it the second-best thing in its showroom, apart from the NSX. The 2019 Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class uses a plush ride and a lush cabin to captivate crossover crowds—and trumps it all with the AMG card.
