2019 BMW X3

The BMW X3, a key player in the luxury compact SUV space, is another well-rounded option. Like the Q5, the X3 seats five passengers, offers a choice of robust engines, and features distinctive German styling. It’s known for being on the expensive side for the class, but then, so is the Q5. In fact, the X3 starts at a couple thousand dollars less, so that might be a deciding factor if budget is a concern for you.

That said, the X3 starts out with rear-wheel drive, while the Q5 comes standard with all-wheel drive. Interior quality in the X3 also falls a little short of class standards. It’s still pretty nice, but the base model's cabin looks and feels a little more basic than those in some other luxury crossovers.
