The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.8
7.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2016 Audi Q3 gives compact luxury SUVs a good name with cozy ride quality and accommodations—but it's not the most space- or fuel-efficient vehicle of its kind. The 2016 BMW X1 is heavy on sport and light on utility -- a combination that's likely to please a number of buyers.
