TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2020 Acura RDX is a stylish, strong-performing crossover SUV worthy of a place on any shopping list. The 2020 Audi Q5 has become the default luxury crossover SUV for many drivers for a reason: it’s very good. The 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class is comfortable and quiet, with few rivals in among small luxury crossovers.
