TCC’s Bottom Line
The Audi Q5 is certainly the segment's most modern offering, delivering a high degree of technology, comfort, and conservative style. The 2018 BMW X3 ventures into M territory, but doesn’t lose sight of its SUV duties. The 2018 Lincoln MKC is a luxury compact crossover that’s a relative value compared to others. It’s an SUV with all the amenities, but without the cachet.
