The BMW X4 most often competes with the Mercedes-Benz GLC Class based on their similar looks and powertrains.
We like the higher-zoot GLC43 for its turbo-6 and all-wheel drive, but the base X4 has a better turbo-4.
The Audi Q5 is tangentially related, although its styling is considerably more upright.
The SQ5 might be worth a look if performance is your priority.
The Porsche Macan is similarly priced at base levels, but reaches bonkers-level price and performance in Macan Turbo guise.
The Land Rover Range Rover Evoque is a stylish pick for small crossover buyers who may need some modicum of off-road talent (there has to be a few of you out there).
The new BMW X3 is on its way soon and may be a compelling pick just across the showroom floor—it’s more practical and has better interior tech.
