The Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class and Audi Q5 are the most natural competitors to the X3 and both have their advantages.
The Q5 was recently redesigned, and it’s a bit more versatile, and is stuffed with infotainment and technology.
The GLC-Class is newer and looks sharp, and has a road-slaying AMG GLC63 edition.
The new Jaguar F-Pace is a stunner, and can still be had with diesel power.
Lexus sells a hybrid RX and, love it or not, its styling has crossed over from bland to brazen.
The Alfa Romeo Stelvio has fine road manners, tight cargo space, iffy ergonomics, and unknown brand quality.
