The Velar is a close relative to the Jaguar F-Pace, though the Rover has a nicer interior and, to our eyes, is more interesting outside as well.

The Volvo XC60 is conservative compared to the Velar but nearly as striking inside, and it’s a bargain.

Audi’s Q5 is starting to gray around its automotive temples, though we appreciate its balanced handling and its high-tech interior.

The divine Mercedes-Benz GLC seems to do everything right, from base versions to the fire-breathing AMG editions.

If you value performance over practicality, push the Porsche Macan to the top of your list; it puts off some heat of its own.
