The 2018 Acura MDX addresses some of our biggest complaints with prior models with the addition of a refreshed dual-screen infotainment system, including a new capacitive touchscreen that Acura says is 30 percent faster. Android Auto and Apple CarPlay support is now standard as well.

PROS
Generous array of features and active driver aids for the money
Optional SH-AWD system enhances handling and all-season sure-footedness
Smooth and confident acceleration from the V6 engine
Quiet, comfortable and spacious cabin

CONS
Adaptive cruise control can be slow to respond and abrupt when it does
Auto stop-start function for V6 can be a bit rough
Cabin looks and feels less luxurious than those of some rivals

The 2019 Buick Envision’s more powerful engine, improved transmission, and lower price tag pique our interest.

Pros
Attractive styling
Should still be very quiet
Lower price helps
9-speed automatic could aid fuel economy, engine response

Cons
Turbo is AWD-only
Price climbs fast
Narrow interior
Doesn’t do much to stand out
