The XT5 is the newest arrival in the world of luxury crossover SUVs.
It will face the outgoing Audi Q5, an aging design that's held up remarkably well in styling and performance, though its diesel models have fallen under scrutiny along with the rest of the VW Group's diesel lineup.
The Mercedes GLE is the updated version of the M-Class, with new drivetrains and new interior trim added to its excellent safety scores.
And the new Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class has sport-sedan-derived underpinnings and well-designed, flamboyant interior, and it might be a more direct rival than the GLE.
Finally, the new Jaguar F-Pace promises a lighter-weight body and available diesel power when it goes on sale early in 2016.
