The Car Connection's Take

TCC Rating

6.7
7.0

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 X4 is a crossover worth coveting, though our money would be on the more practical, cheaper, and really not much different X3.
