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. The 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class captivates crossover types with its lush cabin and its plush ride; there’s AMG power on tap if you must.
