chombs

Looking for a reliable 7/8 seat family car SUV that rides well. I like the Mazda CX9 but realize the Highlander and Pilot are generally more reliable. (Test drove Highlander and found it lacking in any "pep.") Probably go with a 2018 to get new safety features.

Any thoughts...

What does the crowd say:
2015/2016 Acura TLX FWD + Technology package
vs
2015.5/2016 Volvo S60 FWD Platinum (because of the stereo/adaptive cruise control / full-auto-braking)

I liked both of them on test drives, but for driving characterists and style it definitely tilts to the Volvo. However I'm concerned...
