The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.8
7.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2015 Audi Q3 stakes out its claim in compact-crossover territory, with Google Earth to map the way. The 2014 BMW X1 has plenty of style and enthusiasm, although it's a little short on some of the versatility and utility you might expect.
