TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2021 Audi Q7 three-row SUV features more standard safety and convenience features, an excellent infotainment system, and a soft, luxurious ride. The 2021 X5 is BMW’s best vehicle, one that does nearly everything with grace and ease. The 2021 Lincoln Aviator drops sensational style and space, but the Grand Touring plug-in’s a bit of a misfire.
