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 2016 Lincoln MKS offers a kind of luxury that's understated and reserved—although from the driver's seat it's a little more inspiring than you might expect. The 2016 Volvo S80 makes safety and comfort the priority; it's a better long-distance than tight-corner performer.
