TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2019 BMW X3 is a versatile compact crossover that delivers on rising expectations. The 2019 Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class uses a plush ride and a lush cabin to captivate crossover crowds—and trumps it all with the AMG card. The 2019 Volvo XC60 is the full picture: advanced powertrains, gorgeous interior, subtle exterior.
