2020 Audi Q5 vs. Its Competition

2020 Audi Q5
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.
