TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2011 Acura RL lives up to its flagship status in the Acura lineup with top-notch tech features and long-haul comfort, but charm comes up missing. The 2011 Audi A6 is elegant and agile, although its cabin design is looking somewhat dated. The 2011 Volvo S80 is safe and secure, fashion-forward, and just right for affluent families.
