Bengt Halvorson Bengt Halvorson Senior Editor

The Audi Q5 offers more drivetrain options than its competitors, but that doesn't make the competition any less steep.

The Mercedes-Benz GLK is priced more reasonably than the Q5, and also offers a diesel engine.

The BMW X3 is spacious and offers a powerful turbo-six, while the Evoque comes with a nine-speed automatic.

The Volvo XC60 is big, safe and stylish, and Cadillac's SRX has a great V-6 and useful CUE infotainment system in its corner.

Quick Specs
The 2015 Audi Q5 remains one of the most elegant, truly car-like crossovers on the market.
Among compact crossovers, the 2015 BMW X3 doesn't try to be rugged; instead it's one of the sportiest and most fuel-efficient in its class, and this year's new sDrive and diesel models add to that while the lineup gets even more tech and active-safety options.
The 2015 Cadillac SRX offers class-leading technology and excellent interior appointments in a uniquely American luxury crossover.
The 2015 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque tones down the off-road chops of its older siblings and turns up the design, creating a stylish carlike utility in the process.
The 2015 Mercedes-Benz GLK offers two great engine options in a baby-SUV shell, but with the comfort and dynamics of a crossover.
The 2015 Volvo XC60 crossover stays stylish--and now it gets much better gas mileage from a new four-cylinder engine.
