The Car Connection's Take

8.4
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2017 Volvo S90 gets all the elegance and style of the brilliant new XC90 crossover, in a sedan package. The 2016 Acura RLX offers some minor updates to an already competent—if subtle—luxury package. It's an interesting alternative to the other cars in its class.
