TCC’s Bottom Line

The 2017 BMW X3 continues its run as one of the best compact luxury SUVs on the market—even in the face of much newer competition. The 2017 Jaguar F-Pace does an excellent job of putting just as much emphasis on sport as on utility. The Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class makes a terrific combination of the features and practical needs most buyers want in an attractive package.
