TCC’s Bottom Line
While performance may not be its forte, the 2015 GMC Acadia is a strong contender as a replacement for the minivan in your driveway. The 2015 Mazda CX-9 isn't as efficient as Mazda's latest offerings, but it manages to put the same kind of smile on the driver's face as the brand's smaller offerings. The 2015 Toyota Highlander offers a versatile and stylish alternative to the minivan, with available all-wheel drive and a thoughtfully designed interior.
