The Lexus UX is one of a slew of compact crossovers that anchor the lineups of some big luxury nameplates.
The BMW X1 and Volvo XC40 are the freshest faces in the segment and each has its own appealing set of virtues.
The Volvo is particularly design-forward and is a strong value, too.
The BMW feels more thrifty and less nimble than its showroom siblings, but it’s relatively spacious.
Mercedes-Benz builds the GLA-Class and shares the architecture with the Infiniti QX30; they're both full of compromises, particularly in ride quality, but are solid to drive.
Audi's Q3 is new for the 2019 model year, and its shape doesn’t change much, though its tech offerings are much richer.
