TCC’s Bottom Line
If the Acura RLX's weak sales figures are anything to go by, its subtlety is lost on most consumers. The 2017 Lincoln Continental is a pleasing, contradictory piece that drips with ornate trim, but drives like a more mature MKZ. The 2017 Volvo S90 gets all the elegance and style of the brilliant new XC90 crossover, in a sedan package.
