Germany and Sweden offer plenty of reasons to consider the XT5’s competition.

The BMW X3, Volvo XC60, Audi Q5, and Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class each offer a range of engine options and come packed with the kind of personality lacking in the Caddy.

We like the X3 for its suave moves, the GLC for its slick styling, the Q5 for its high-tech interior, and the XC60 for its serene attitude.

Among homegrown efforts, the sophisticated Lincoln Nautilus has an approachable infotainment system.
