TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2016 Audi Q5 offers one of the greatest range of powertrain choices in its class, ensuring that almost anyone can find a version of this handsome small crossover to fit their tastes. The stylish 2016 BMW X3 skips the ruggedness thing entirely and instead succeeds in being one of the sportiest and tech-loaded yet fuel-efficient compact crossovers. The 2016 Porsche Macan has almost all the rippling, muscular performance of the bigger Cayenne, in a slightly more compact, slightly less expensive package.
