TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2011 Acura RDX is delightfully frisky and nimble, but it doesn't feel as lavish as other luxury crossovers. The 2011 Audi Q5 is one of the best upscale picks in a compact crossover, thanks to its sleek lines, practical interior, responsive feel, and city-savvy size. The 2011 Volvo XC60 offers top in-car tech and luxury features, in a secure package that's big enough for small families.
