The mid-size luxury SUV segment that was dormant for a while has now burst back to life with the launch of the new Volvo XC60, Audi Q5 and BMW X3 in close succession. But they have to go up against segment stalwarts, the Mercedes-Benz GLC and the Land Rover Discovery Sport to prove their mettle. Shapur Kotwal brings the class together to pick a winner.

      any one here owning a *Volvo, how's the service and parts* availability in India? Skoda has burnt me badly, so I now need to be more careful before purchasing.

      BMW is the best car because it is an all rounder in the comparison and BMW should have made the engine a little more refined

      On Indian roads with all the potholes, Germans suck, volvo ain't even in the race. Discovery is just made for off roading.... so it is the most practical and the best one.

      While casting opinions many opt for cars other than merkz, but when buying most of them opt for merk other than the rest, because they are the best and most reliable.

      for me, after this review,
      1st BMW x3
      2nd Audi Q5
      3rd Volvo xc60

      But... finally i bought Q5 last week.
      Real view of Q5 is much better than others. :)
