TCC’s Bottom Line
BMW finally has a crossover that's as good as its cars. The 2011 BMW X3 looks fantastic; performs like a sport sedan; and has a comfortable, top-notch interior. The 2011 Volvo XC60 offers top in-car tech and luxury features, in a secure package that's big enough for small families.
