First impressions of the Acadia is that it’s big and it looks it. It’s actually a tiny bit shorter in length than the CX-9 but it looks bigger from the outside. The truck-like front gives a rough and rugged effect and while I’m sure this car will certainly appeal to a particular customer, for me it’s too butch.
The driving is a little bouncy and not particularly smooth, but the interiors are huge.
In the front there’s loads of leg and head room, with a great divide between driver and front passenger, it’s all very breezy and light.
It’s equipped with Apple Carplay or Android Auto, whichever your smartphone poison. It’s the easiest tech to use as it syncs with your phone and the main apps appear on the multimedia screen, so you can use maps to navigate, Spotify or whatever you use to listen to music and podcasts, and you can also use voice control to make calls and send text messages while driving. The sound system is also good, I put the music up quite a few times this week on some long drives and there was no distortion.
