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 Cadillac XT5 is a comfortable SUV, but competitors offer more personality and refinement. The 2021 Lincoln Nautilus is calm, smooth, and offers good power, but it makes no attempt to be sporty.
