The Audi Q5, BMW X3, and Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class are the heavy-hitters in the compact SUV segment, offering impressive tech, driving dynamics, and interior quality, respectively.

Jeep’s Grand Cherokee is somewhat long in the tooth, but offers more off-road capability than most other crossovers with a dash of luxury thrown in.
