The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating Read Our Full Review Read Our Full Review
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-Benz GLA piles a tall space-efficient layout, a double shot of urban attitude, and a grande dash of ruggedness into a vehicle that looks fully up to Mercedes-Benz luxury standards.
