Audi Q3

There's been a gaping hole in luxury makers lineups between entry-level sedans and entry-level crossovers and small SUVs. Audi is looking to change all that. Based on the affordable, compact VW Tiguan crossover, the new Audi Q3 (€30,000; roughly $43,500) improves on Veedub's formula with more agressive, Audi-esque styling, LED lighting, your choice of three turbocharged four-cylinder engines, and options like Quattro all-wheel drive, a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission, lane change assist, a park assist system, an MMI navigation system with a seven-inch color screen, Bluetooth, a hard drive, and GPS, adaptive cruise control, and adaptive xenon headlights. In other words, everything you'd expect, just in a smaller package.

  • Land Rover Defender X-Tech

    If you long for the boxy, rugged looks of classic Rovers but want to keep the creature comforts of modern models, check out the Land Rover Defender X-Tech (£25,000; roughly $40,000). Available in three-door 90 or five-door 110 varieties, the X-Tech features a blocky front end with black on the roof, wheel arches, and headlight assemblies, a silver (90) or olive green (110) exterior, glossy black 16-inch "Saw Tooth" alloy wheels, a 2.4L common-rail diesel powerplant, and all the off-road chops you'd expect. If only they were selling it in the U.S.

  • GMC Sierra All Terrain HD

    Not content to let its competitors have all the off-road fun, GM is striking back with the GMC Sierra All Terrain HD ($TBA). This new concept features suspension upgrades, a higher ground clearance, and wider stance than the typical Sierra, along with a 6.6L Duramax diesel V8 pumping out 397 hp and 765 pound-feet of torque, rugged tires, and built-in cargo boxes on the sides of the bed.
