TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2010 Acura RL offers lots of features and strong safety. Performance takes a backseat in the 2010 RL-but technology and durability certainly don't. Whether as a sedan or wagon, the 2010 BMW 5-Series is a distinctly sportier, tech-savvy alternative to luxury rivals-without giving up any comfort. Safety and comfort—and advanced tech features—never get short shrift in the 2010 Volvo S80, but not even a V-8 and all-wheel drive makes it a serious sport sedan.
