The Car Connection's Take

TCC Rating

7.5
6.8

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 X4 takes today’s trend toward swoopier SUVs and packages it with a roundel up front. It’s entertaining and a looker, but not all that practical.
