Compact luxury crossover buyers are spoiled for choice, with strong entries from the German brands in the form of the Audi Q5, BMW X3, and Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class, all of which are less than a few years old like the XT5.
Those three also offer sportier variants, including the SQ5, X3 M40i, and GLC43 and GLC63 AMG.
The Lexus RX continues to be the sales benchmark though, and offers more space and comfort, as well as the option for a third row with the extended RX 350L.
The Volvo XC60 is the most stylish of the bunch, and a comfortable, beautifully-appointed cabin will undoubtedly woo many buyers.
