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. The 2010 Cadillac STS drives well-the STS-V is a trailblazer-but the cramped backseat and well-worn styling haven't kept pace in the luxury class. 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.
