TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2013 Audi Q7 is a premium, lavishly-appointed three-row utility vehicle with great on-road manners and capability, plus towing ability--without the off-road style or pretense. While it's not as fresh-faced as some of the competition, the 2013 BMW X5 continues to shine in utility, comfort, driving, and, in the X5 M, shockingly high performance. The 2013 Porsche Cayenne spans a wide range of capabilities, from basic family hauler to track-worthy sports SUV, with a few stops in between--including a brand new diesel.
