Pros
Refined ride quality

Lackluster base engine

GMC has made a few packaging changes to the Acadia for 2021. The Pro Safety Plus package, which includes several driver-assistance features, is now standard on SLT, AT4, and Denali. An Elevation Edition package is now available on the SLE and SLT and includes 20-inch wheels and black exterior accents. A heated steering wheel joins the Premium package for SLT and AT4 trims. .

Pros
Square-jawed styling,
intuitive infotainment interface,
cargo-friendly interior.

Cons
Costs more than interior materials suggest,
tight third-row passenger space,
mediocre fuel economy.

The 2020 GMC Acadia’s expanded lineup and new styling look worth the wait.

Pros
Good looks
Infotainment upgrades worthwhile
Intriguing new turbo-4

Cons
Active safety tech should be standard
A little narrow inside
Push-button shifters not our favorite

The VW faces an uphill struggle against brand laden rivals, but is actually just as good.

Pros
Sophisticated and high-tech interior plus engines for all situations in the pipeline

Cons
Same-price rivals wear more premium badges

By: 
topgear.com

Pros
Good value in lower trim levels
Spacious inside for up to five people
Excellent towing capabilities

Cons
Cheap-feeling interior plastics
Fussy infotainment system
No seven-seat option

The 2020 Volkswagen Touareg V8 TDI is expensive, but it also has a very special diesel V-8 under the hood.

Pros
Fast enough for the autobahn,
diesel efficiency,
premium-brand levels of luxury and refinement.

Cons
Garish chrome grille; an Alcantara headliner would be nice;
we'd love to have it here,
but it's premium-brand money.
