TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2019 Audi Q8 four-seat luxury crossover is the logical answer to: “What’s the first thing you’ll do when you don’t have to pay for the kids to go to college anymore?” The 2019 BMW X5 grows even closer to being the do-it-all vehicle in its family. The 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLE-Class delivers no-compromise crossover SUV comfort and luxury.
