2019 Audi Q5 vs. Its Competition

Aaron Cole Aaron Cole Managing Editor

The best and brightest on the road may be compact crossovers and Mercedes-Benz and BMW offer two of the best.

We like the GLC’s broad spectrum of powertrains and the X3’s execution of style of space.

The F-Pace is the most stylish but lacks some refinement from its engines.

The XC60 offers a beautifully rendered interior and available plug-in powertrain—for a price.

The Alfa Romeo Stelvio is the most fun to drive among the bunch but it can be tiring.
