The Best Compact Luxury SUVs On the Market

There are a lot of luxury SUVs that are stylish, powerful, and full of impressive features. This includes the:

  • Audi Q5
  • BMW X1
  • Mercedes-Benz GLC
  • Audi Q3

Each one has an athletic-looking exterior, comfortable and refined-looking interior, and lots of cutting-edge technologies.

Audi Q3

The Audi Q3 focuses on comfort and luxury, with an attractive cabin that boasts materials like standard leather seating and available inlays in Aluminum Satellite or Balsamic Brown Walnut Wood. Heated front seats are available to stay cozy on particularly cold nights. Also, the vehicle comes standard with 12-way power-adjustable front seats for all-day comfort.


The BMW X1 focuses more on sportiness. As a result, you may find that its interior isn't as comfortable. It does offer heated front seats. However, it comes standard with SensaTec upholstery, which is a synthetic leather. It also comes standard with 8-way power-adjustable front seats. As a result, you may find it a bit more challenging to get in that perfect seating position up front.

Mercedes-Benz GLC

The Mercedes-Benz GLC has just 19.4 cubic feet behind the second row and 56.5 cubic feet when that row is folded down.

The GLC comes with a 2.0L 4-cylinder engine, which delivers 241 horsepower. This vehicle achieves an EPA-estimated 27 highway MPG, but its city rating doesn't fare as well, coming to 22 city MPG. While that may not seem like much of a difference, it's much more noticeable when traveling through constant stop-and-go traffic.

Audi Q5

The Audi Q5 offers a great deal of cargo room. It has 26.8 cubic feet of space behind the rear seats and 60.4 cubic feet when those seats are folded down flat. The Audi Q5 is also more powerful and fuel-efficient. It comes with a 2.0L TFSI® 4-cylinder engine that delivers 252 horsepower. For even more power, there's the Audi SQ5, the sport version of the Q5. It comes with a 3.0L V6 engine that produces 354 horsepower. However, the power of the Q5 doesn't compromise its efficiency, as it achieves an EPA-estimated 23 city/27 highway MPG.*
