The Land Rover Range Rover Sport outshines the Cadillac off-road, but with a cramped and compromised interior, it isn’t as functional as the more squared-off SRX.
The Volkswagen Touareg is a five-seater as well, but its approach to design is more fluid and “European.” The Infiniti FX seats five and features even more controversial styling than the SRX—though to many, it’s arguably the best-looking, even after a mild redesign for ‘09.
The Lexus RX 350 is a traditional luxury crossover with an enviable reputation for quality and a hybrid option, but driving excitement is not at all the name of its game.
The Mercedes-Benz M-Class doesn't offer a third-row seat, and feels the least nimble of the bunch on a twisty road, but it’s spacious and available with a clean-diesel option that gets class-leading fuel economy.
