The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.8
7.0
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 Volvo XC60 is a near-luxury contender at near-luxury prices. Its safety might be its biggest strong suit, which it rightly deserves.
