The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.2
8.4
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2010 GMC Acadia strikes a good balance: more useful than full-size SUVs for passenger duty, yet a lot better-looking than a minivan. The 2011 Mazda CX-9 can carry seven in comfort, but it loves curves more than almost any other roomy crossover.
