TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2019 BMW X3 is a versatile compact crossover that delivers on rising expectations. The 2019 Cadillac XT4 is an impressive first start for an automaker that, almost amazingly, has skipped small crossovers until now. The Mercedes-Benz GLA merges hatchback size with crossover functionality and luxury appointments, with better-than-average results.
