TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2018 Volvo XC90 is the crossover success that brought new buyers into the brand. Its mix of good looks and excellent tech make it a major player now. The 2018 Acura MDX should be atop many lists for luxury buyers looking for spacious family crossovers. Others may do bits and pieces better, but the MDX offers a complete—and well-considered package.
