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. The best SUV to drive in this class, the Macan lacks more practical considerations.
