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 Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class uses a plush ride and a lush cabin to captivate crossover crowds—and trumps it all with the AMG card.
