The E-Pace will likely compete against the baby Benz crossover and baby Bimmer crossover, but the Jag is bigger than both.
We like the X1 for its solid turbo-4 and modest looks, but it’s not as compelling to drive as the E-Pace.
The GLA isn’t as big inside, and its material quality is questionable in lower trims, but it’s the only one to offer a performance version (for now).
The Audi Q3 is outclassed in every way so far and is due for a replacement soon.
The Lincoln MKC is surprisingly fast when optionally equipped with a 2.3-liter turbo-4 and can be fun to drive, although it can be extraordinarily expensive.
Want to roll the dice on a brand with a sketchy rep that’s not called “Jaguar”? Take a look at the Stelvio.
