2020 Audi Q5 vs. Its Competition

Andrew Ganz Andrew Ganz Senior Editor

The compact luxury SUV segment is full of good choices.

The Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class strikes a desirable balance between comfort, luxury, and performance, and it’s hard to go wrong with any configuration.

The BMW X3 is just as good, albeit without the same level of breadth.

Jaguar’s F-Pace is starting to show its age but remains a comfortable, refined choice for a surprisingly reasonable price.

Outliers in the segment that belong on any shopping list include the occasionally manic Alfa Romeo Stelvio and the divine Lincoln Corsair that only occasionally reveals its entry-level roots.

Quick Specs
The 2020 Audi Q5 has become the default luxury crossover SUV for many drivers for a reason: it’s very good.
The 2020 Jaguar F-Pace sticks to its performance and style formula, and remains one of the best luxury SUVs.
The 2020 Lincoln Corsair capitalizes on calm—and caps out near $60,000.
The 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class is comfortable and quiet, with few rivals in among small luxury crossovers.
The 2020 Alfa Romeo Stelvio delivers the full Italian experience in an SUV. It’s charming, engaging, beautiful, and quick, but reliability is suspect.
