TCC’s Bottom Line
A modest performer but a people-carrying overachiever, the GMC Acadia stakes out a claim right at the edge of Minivan Territory. The 2014 Mazda CX-9 is one of the most engaging large crossovers from the driver's seat; but the CX-9 is no standout for efficiency, like the brand's newer cars. The 2014 Toyota Highlander covers familiar territory, without straying too far into Adventure Land.
