TCC’s Bottom Line
It’s easy to see why buyers increasingly pick luxury compact crossovers like the 2019 Audi Q5; it’s comfortable and quick with plenty of room. The 2019 BMW X3 is a versatile compact crossover that delivers on rising expectations. The 2019 Cadillac XT5 is a solid, if forgettable, crossover. Consider the Caddy’s myriad rivals, too.
