The Audi Q3 most often competes with the GLA Class from Mercedes and X1 from BMW.
The X1 is our pick to drive, but the GLA has more room and better manners in its second generation.
The Encore GX is handsomely styled and has ample power, and it’s priced much lower to boot.
The Volvo XC40 is the stylish pick of the bunch, but it is smaller and could be too cute for many buyers.
Acura’s RDX has perky turbo-4 power and great handling, but its infotainment needs a new interface.
