TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2012 Audi Q7 has what upscale suburban families want: a lavish interior, a cabin full of premium features, and performance and ride that are very carlike--plus serious towing ability if and when you need it. The 2012 BMW X6 is no longer alone in the coupe-like SUV market, but it remains one of the best options, for its performance, luxury, utility, and style. The 2012 Infiniti FX35 and FX50 look like they sacrifice some practicality in the name of a sexy design and scorching performance—and that's exactly the case.
