Audi Introduces the first Q5 Sportback generation for 2021.

PROS
Quiet, comfortable cabin
Top-notch interior craftsmanship
Lots of standard equipment, including all-wheel drive
Wide array of technology options

CONS
Less overall storage space than standard Q5

“Sportier Sportback does well to not compromise on practicality, but you’ll pay a premium for odd looks ”

PROS
Impressively practical despite the roof,
interior is still top of the class

CONS
It will give you an existential crisis.
What is it all for?

By:

Former T8 plug-in hybrid is now called Recharge.Adaptive headlights, hands-free liftgate and rear USB-C ports added as standard.

Pros
Elegant interior design
Spacious second-row seating
Many standard safety tech features
Available as a plug-in hybrid

Cons
Not as fun to drive as most competitors
Too many controls tied to frustrating touchscreen interface
Ride is a little busier than you might expect from a luxury crossover

The XC60 receives several new standard features for 2021, including blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, LED headlights, a wireless smartphone charging pad, and front parking sensors, as well as a new 19-inch wheel design and power-folding exterior mirrors with an auto-dimming function. Volvo has eliminated AM radio on the XC60, but fans of the format will still be able to listen via a provided app, TuneIn, through the infotainment system.

Pros
Handsomely designed inside and out,
good fuel economy from all three powertrains,
plenty of standard safety tech.

Cons
Infotainment system response lags at startup,
hybrid powertrain needs refinement,
dinky interior storage bins.

Gorgeous interior
Competent powertrains
Standard advanced safety features
Logical and sharp touchscreen

Cons
Can get pricey quickly
Not especially fuel efficient without a plug
Requires premium fuel
It’s not in our driveway now
