Acura redesigned the MDX for 2022, skipping the 2021 model year. The new SUV shares its styling and technology with the recently revamped RDX and TLX models.

Pros
Sharp styling,
surprisingly nimble chassis,
high-tech cabin.

Cons
Tight third row passenger space,
mediocre fuel economy ratings,
fussy infotainment touchpad.

Audi has introduced the fastback Q5 Sportback model for 2021 and given the squareback Q5 a light makeover to bring its styling up to date with the rest of the lineup.The plug-in hybrid model receives similar updates to the exterior styling and sports unique 19- or 20-inch wheels. It too sees a slight horsepower bump this year to 362-hp. A Sport Plus package is available for the Q5 PHEV which adds adaptive air suspension and summer tires, among other items.

PROS
Slick looks,
stylish interior,
plenty of technology features.

CONS
Not as capacious as some rivals,
short on driving character,
stingy complimentary maintenance plan.
