TCC’s Bottom Line
For active families who need to tow a boat or occasionally head off-pavement–but don't need a third row–the 2014 Mercedes-Benz ML is an excellence vehicle choice. The 2014 Volvo XC90 is a luxurious, smart choice for families with priorities on safety and comfort, though it isn't exactly cutting-edge anymore.
