TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2018 Acura RLX brandishes some exotic hardware, and wraps it in anonymity. We’re not fans of mismatches, but the 2018 Lincoln Continental’s lithe road manners and retro theming pair awfully well. With its graceful styling and gentle demeanor, the 2018 Volvo S90 is one of our favorite luxury sedans—at any price.
