The Lexus RX offers only two rows of seating, but with a edgy new design and F Sport versions of even the RX 450h hybrid model, it’s taken a sportier tack and is more of an alternative to the MDX than it was; it still doesn’t offer a third row of seating though.
The Volvo XC90 is all new, very luxurious and quiet, and offers a plug-in hybrid edition—as well as an excellent interface.
The BMW X5 is a more handsome–albeit more carlike–crossover than it ever has been in the past, and offers a wider variety of engines, appearance packages, and interior trims.
The Lexus RX 350 is the segment's perennial best-seller, but it lacks the extra row of seats and much of the fun-factor behind the wheel.
There's also the Buick Enclave, which offers an exceptionally quiet ride and gentle, smooth driving dynamics–as well as a long list of standard and available features.
The Lincoln MKT may look a little strange from the outside, but its interior is well-designed and equally useful by comparison to the MDX.
