Almost unbelievably, the Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class is priced more reasonably than the Audi Q5, and offers a diesel powertrain that the Q5 had once.
The BMW X3 is in the same boat, but its interior falls short of both the Benz and the Audi.
Range Rover's stylish Evoque looks great, but has a less finely finished interior and more cabin noise than the Audi.
Cadillac has packed its XT5 with a lot of tech, but we're still waiting for Super Cruise on that model.
The Volvo XC60 may start at roughly $4,000 less than the Q5, and has an even more striking cockpit, though like the Audi it's starting to show its age.
