TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2021 Audi Q5 crossover puts a new face on a best-selling formula that doesn’t show signs of getting old. The 2021 BMW X3 is a do-all small crossover loaded with luxury, technology, and usability, with a dash of sporty personality. The 2021 Cadillac XT5 is a comfortable SUV, but competitors offer more personality and refinement.
