The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.8
8.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2015 Audi Q3 stakes out its claim in compact-crossover territory, with Google Earth to map the way. The 2015 Mercedes GLA isn't the roomiest small crossover, but it's a stylish vehicle with a double shot of urban attitude--and a dash of ruggedness--that looks fully up to Mercedes-Benz luxury standards.
