TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2021 Audi Q3 is bulky but not brash, with good tech and space inside for passengers and gear. The 2021 BMW X1 is an appealing crossover with hatchback moves, but keep a lid on options for the better value. The 2021 Lexus UX taps design verve to hawk its cozy interior space and its middling performance.
