TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2018 BMW X5 remains a thoughtful crossover SUV for families, although enthusiasts may be left wanting unless the right options are selected. The Lexus RX makes a style-conscious statement like never before, and it hasn’t lost its grip on good manners. Performance, plug-in, or pedestrian: there’s a 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLE for almost every luxury-SUV buyer.
