The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.8
8.4
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 Porsche Macan swings for the crossover fences, with Cayenne performance in a more tidy, somewhat more cost-effective package.
