The 2016 Volvo XC60 keeps the same list of competitors it's had for a while now.
In its seventh year, recent styling, engine, and equipment upgrades keep it a solid competitor for smaller SUVs from German and English luxury brands.
The Audi Q5, equally long in the tooth, still outhandles the XC60—and it's got a fuel-efficient diesel option too.
The latest incarnation of the BMW X3 handles well, and offers a smooth ride and luxury, at the expense of interior room.
The recently redesigned Acura RDX is much more mainstream now, targeting the heart of the luxury crossover market at a good price point.
The Infiniti QX50 (nee EX37) is a low-volume contender that gains some much-needed back-seat space this year.
The newest contender is the Land Rover Discovery Sport, which replaces the LR2 with a larger, more luxurious, seven-seat mid-size crossover that offers a compelling mix of qualities.
