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 Land Rover Discovery Sport explores the borders of status and image better than it explores the wilderness.
