Luxury automakers are getting into the small crossover game with mixed results.
The Mercedes-Benz GLA offers a much sportier AMG edition, but the standard GLA 250 rides too harshly; it’s due for a complete makeover soon.
The BMW X1 features a front-drive platform like the Q3, but it doesn’t feel as premium as Audi’s entry even though it may have more room.
The Lexus UX offers hybrid power and a snazzy interior, though it can seem built to a price compared to cars such as the Volvo XC40, which has a sporty, entertaining look to match its performance.
The latest Acura RDX is maybe that brand’s best overall effort, with crisp lines that go well with its eager handling.
