TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2017 Audi Q5 soldiers on with good space and carlike handling; it's still one of the better luxury SUVs, despite its age. The 2017 BMW X3 continues its run as one of the best compact luxury SUVs on the market—even in the face of much newer competition. The 2017 Porsche Macan may be smaller than the Cayenne, but it has almost all of the space and most of the rippling, muscular performance in a slightly less expensive package.
