Motortrend has a new small luxury SUV head-to-head comparison.
We knew we had a battle on our hands before we even palmed the first key fob. The last time we did a test like this (“Dune Devils,” July 2008), the segment consisted of just five vehicles, of which we chose to compare four — Acura RDX, BMW X3, Land Rover LR2 HSE, and Lincoln MKX. When it came time to select the contenders for this go ’round only two years later, we drew up a list twice as long. So we exorcised the demons from that story — including the formerly winning RDX — in deference to the latest in six-cylinder luxury. With the Cadillac SRX not yet available, we chose to cut the decidedly carlike Infiniti EX35, launched last year, in favor of an all-new foursome: Audi Q5, Lexus RX 350, Mercedes-Benz GLK350, and Volvo XC60. – From Motor Trend
