TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2021 BMW X4 is a crossover worth coveting, though our money would be on the more practical, cheaper, and really not much different X3. The 2021 Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class can be a soothing urban oasis—or a roaring twin-turbo V-8 track star. It’s your call. A natural athlete, the Porsche Macan is the standard-bearer for sporty small SUVs and it’s priced to match
