Christian Wardlaw Test Drive Review:

While other manufacturers rolled into the crossover SUV market with little panache, Nissan’s Infiniti division made a splash with its FX series, offering a sportier look than most. The...

Exciting to drive and feel—“like a sports car”. Distinctive and very advanced from prior Acura’s—really steppe...
Value Ranked 2019 BMW X3 sDrive30i RWD worse.
"To me they are very competetive in handling, luxury, and power. The RDX is a little more adrenaline inducing and the x3 a little more refined."
Would Buy Ranked 2019 BMW X3 sDrive30i RWD better.
"We did just buy a RWD 2019 x3, loaded with features, although we really liked the RDX a lot. The difference was a little more refined feel and the dealer was fantastic, extremely customer friendly. offered great extras—free servicing for 3,000 miles, and unlimited car washes, and was willing to take some $4,000 off MSRP. and was in our local area. Acura not willing to negotiate, apparently because the 2019 is a brand new and upgraded model from the 2018–although very friendly."

Very nice, comfortable SUV.
Front Seats Ranked 2019 Audi Q7 3.0T quattro Prestige AWD better.
"The Audi front seats seemed to be a bit more comfortable and more supportive than the MDX"
Would Buy Ranked 2019 Audi Q7 3.0T quattro Prestige AWD better.
"The Audi seemed to be more solid, quite and responsive than the Acura MDX."

The Acura felt longer in lenght than it was. Ride was not as luxurious, as we were looking for.
Handling Ranked 2019 Volvo XC60 T6 Inscription AWD better.
"Combination of the drive options, suspension, and tires. "
Looks/Style Ranked 2019 Volvo XC60 T6 Inscription AWD better.
"The over all appearance of the Volvo won us over. Looks exotic. The Acura looks like is meant to be mast produced. "

Handling Ranked 2015 Lincoln MKX worse.
"The FX35 felt tighter and sportier then the MKX, it also felt quicker, even thought the horsepower was relatively the same."
Would Buy Ranked 2015 Lincoln MKX better.
"I would have bought the MKX because its overall feel was that of a luxury SUV. Unfortunately, I waited too long and somebody else bought it. Alls good though. I went to see another MKX, and drove two MKCs which were awesome. I am buying one of them."
