Martin Padgett Martin Padgett Editorial Director

The other American entry in this premium crossover market, the 2018 Cadillac XT5 boasts a more aggressive styling character.

With unparalleled levels of tech in this class, the 2018 Audi Q5 is as advanced as crossovers can get.

Turbocharged power and sublime driving dynamics are still trump cards for the 2018 BMW X3.

The 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLC Class has the finest cabin in this segment, and by a huge margin.

The standard for competence, comfort, quality, and refinement, the 2018 Lexus RX is possibly the best all-arounder in this class.
