The Acura MDX and Volvo XC90 are two premium crossovers that punch above their weight classes, according to us.
The Volvo XC90 is available with a longer-lasting battery hybrid setup (it’s a plug-in) that can power the XC90 for 14 miles on electricity alone.
Infiniti shelved its QX60 Hybrid for 2018, but base versions are adequately powered and offer similar amenities.
We like the Audi Q7 and Mercedes-Benz GLE class for their looks and capacities, but both can reach or exceed six figures in top trims.
The GMC Acadia is a reasonable alternative, but has recently shrunk so its third row is best considered occasional-use only.
