TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2016 Acura RLX offers some minor updates to an already competent—if subtle—luxury package. It's an interesting alternative to the other cars in its class. The 2017 Audi A6 is a stellar mid-size luxury sedan; it's a bit sedate, but still good enough to compete with some flagship vehicles from other brands. The 2017 Volvo S90 gets all the elegance and style of the brilliant new XC90 crossover, in a sedan package.
