TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2015 Acura RLX is an understated luxury full-sizer that puts emphasis on unique technical solutions instead of all-out style and flair. Little has changed with the 2015 Lincoln MKS; it continues to offer understated and reserved luxury with an available high-power turbocharged engine option that spices things up somewhat, at least in a straight line. The 2015 Volvo S80 puts safety and comfort first, making it one of the most family-friendly full-size luxury sedans.
