The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.4
8.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2014 Audi Q5 gets quite serious about fuel economy with TDI power; it's still one of the most elegant, truly carlike luxury crossover SUVs. The 2014 BMW X6 bends genres, in mostly successful ways; but whether you like it depends on what you're crossing over from.
