The Nero Edizione package adds black 20-inch alloy wheels, mirror covers, badges, exhaust tips, and grille surrounds.

Audi E-Tron Quattro

Base Price $75,000*

Body Type SUV

All-New The E-Tron Quattro is Audi's first full-production, long-range electric vehicle. Audi considers it a crossover, but the E-Tron Quattro's low ride height and sloping roofline gives it more of a wagonlike appearance. Using a 95-kW-hr battery pack and three electric motors, the E-Tron Quattro will be about as quick as the Jaguar I-Pace. Audi also says owners will be able to charge their E-Tron in less than 30 minutes at a 150-kW charger.

Also Consider Jaguar I-Pace, Tesla Model X

Audi Q3

Base Price $35,000*

Body Type SUV

Major Audi redesigned its smallest crossover for 2019, giving it an A8-inspired front end, sportier styling, and a modern interior. The Q3 is also more spacious than before. A large touchscreen and an even larger instrument display come standard. Several driver-assist features are available, as well. Initially, Audi will offer four engines in Europe, but we don't know which will come to the U.S.

Also Consider Jaguar E-Pace, Lexus UX, Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class

Audi Q5

Base Price $42,500-$55,500

Body Type SUV

Unchanged The Q5 was redesigned last year, so although Audi might add standard features or new colors for 2019, expect any changes to be minimal at best. We're big fans of the well-designed cabin, spacious interior, and high-tech Virtual Cockpit. Attractive styling helps it stand out in a crowded segment. The base four-cylinder pulls hard with minimal turbo lag, and the SQ5 hits 60 mph in 5.0 seconds.

Also Consider BMW X3, Alfa Romeo Stelvio, Mercedes-Benz GLE-Class

Audi Q7

Base Price $51,000*

Body Type SUV

Unchanged Audi redesigned its large seven-passenger crossover for 2017, giving the Q7 a high-end interior, lots of technology, and impressive handling for an SUV its size. Like last year, though, don't expect Audi to make major changes to the tech-laden Q7. Then again, although we'd appreciate a more spacious third row, the Q7 doesn't need many updates to hold its own against the competition.

Also Consider Mercedes-Benz GLS-Class, BMW X7, Volvo XC90

Audi Q8

a car parked on the side of a road© Motor Trend Staff

Base Price $65,000*

Body Type SUV

All-New The Q7 is already large and luxurious enough for most buyers, but Audi went further with the Q8. The large notch-backed crossover is designed to be an alternative to the A8 for style-conscious buyers who no longer want a sedan. It's also wider, lower, and shorter than the Q7, giving the Q8 a high-riding hatch look. The cabin borrows heavily from the A8, surrounding all five passengers in minimalist luxury.

Also Consider BMW X6, Land Rover Range Rover Sport, Porsche Cayenne

Bentley Bentayga

Base Price $180,000-$236,000*

Body Type SUV

Major Two engine options have been added: a twin-turbo V-8 and a plug-in hybrid, making this the first Bentley to offer an electrified powertrain. The lithium-ion battery on the Bentayga plug-in can be recharged in 2.5 hours. In addition to the four main drive modes, three E modes allow it to operate in hybrid, EV, or Hold mode, the latter of which saves the battery for later use.

Also Consider Rolls-Royce Cullinan, Mercedes-AMG GLS 63, Land Rover Range Rover SVAutobiography

BMW X1

Base Price $35,000-$37,000*

Body Type SUV

Unchanged Other than new exterior colors and some packaging updates, not much changes. Underpinned by the UKL platform, the X1 is a rare front-drive-based vehicle to wear the BMW badge and shares its powertrain with the Mini Clubman and Countryman. Folks have been waiting for an M Performance model—more power, a sportier suspension setup, and stickier tires—but BMW has not confirmed its existence.

Also Consider Audi Q3, Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class, Lexus UX

BMW X2

Base Price $37,500-$39,500*

Body Type SUV

Unchanged All-new last year, this tall hatchback isn't expected to get many changes in standard form. However, an M Performance model wearing the M35i badge is expected sometime soon and could be powered by an upgraded version of the 2.0-liter turbo I-4 expected to make around 300 hp. The X2 M35i will likely come with performance tires and a stiffer chassis for improved handling.

Also Consider Infiniti QX30, Land Rover Range Rover Evoque, Jaguar E-Pace

BMW X3

Base Price $41,995-$70,000*

Body Type SUV

Minor The X3 adds a rear-drive variant, but it's limited to models with the base engine. On top of the existing M40i, a full-fledged X3 M powered by the same twin-turbo I-6 found in the M3 and M4 is expected to arrive soon. The X3 M should get more go-fast bits, such as adaptive suspension with its own unique calibration, an active M differential, and a performance-oriented all-wheel-drive system.

Also Consider Volvo XC60, Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class, Audi Q5

BMW X4

Base Price $51,445-$61,445

Body Type SUV

Major The second-gen X4 arrives for 2019, slotting above the X3 as one of the sportier crossovers in BMW's lineup. Like its predecessor, the new X4 has a sloping roofline, so it's harder to see out of and crimps second-row headroom. A full-fledged M variant above the M40i is likely in a couple years, with the same engine as the M3 and M4, a retuned suspension, and a performance-oriented AWD system.

Major The new X5 arrives in early 2019, slightly larger and featuring a cleaner exterior design than its predecessor. Like the outgoing model, it can be had with seating for up to seven passengers and retains the two-section tailgate. Eventually the gas-powered models will be joined by a plug-in hybrid, a diesel variant, and the high-performance X5 M, which should get the twin-turbo V-8 from the M5 sedan.

Unchanged A new-look BMW X6 should come in late 2019 as a 2020 model, on the heels of the recently revealed X5. Expect the same gas engine options as the redesigned X5 and a high-performance X6 M to follow. There could also be a plug-in hybrid, which should use the same system found in the 530e iPerformance sedan, as well as a rear-drive variant. Until then, the X6 holds steady.

Underpinned by the CLAR platform, the X7 will initially be offered with two gas engines. A hybrid model will follow.

Buick Enclave

Base Price $40,995-$56,795

Body Type SUV

Unchanged The Enclave is the Chevrolet Traverse's premium stablemate; it has the same engine but less third-row headroom. Buick's three-row SUV has an optional automatic heated steering wheel and an available Ebony interior on the top Avenir trim. We were hoping it would separate itself more from the Traverse's top trim. Regardless, the Enclave offers superb ride comfort and good handling.

Minor The Envision gets updated with redesigned front and rear fascias and a new grille design. The compact crossover also receives a new nine-speed transmission with the optional turbo-four engine, which now has 35 more lb-ft of torque. Standard features include HID headlights and LED taillights, an auto stop/start deactivation switch, and an air ionizer. Unfortunately, the Envision suffers from some cheap interior components.

Body Type SUV

Unchanged Cadillac's flagship SUV will enter the new model year without any major changes, but a complete redesign is expected for 2020. The Escalade is a quick, capable SUV that seats up to eight, can tow a heavy load, and can be optioned with plenty of luxury and technology. The next-gen Escalade might get an independent rear suspension to better compete with the new Lincoln Navigator.

Base Price $35,790-$38,290

All-New The XT4 is Cadillac's new compact crossover, slotting below the larger XT5 and powered by a 2.0-liter turbo-four with available AWD. The XT4 comes with Cadillac's first infotainment rotary controller, but the standard 8.0-inch touchscreen can also be used. Near-field communication tech should make phone pairing easier, and the four standard USB ports and available wireless charging make recharging easy.

Also Consider Jaguar E-Pace, Acura RDX, Infiniti QX50

Minor Honda's slow but spacious subcompact crossover gets refreshed this year. Most buyers will likely appreciate changes inside the car. EX and above trims now offer Apple CarPlay and Android Auto on a 7.0-inch touchscreen, and the HR-V is said to be quieter. Sport and Touring trims are new, and Honda has updated the CVT, AWD system, and steering. Active safety tech is available; the manual transmission is no more.

Unchanged The three-row Sequoia carries over unchanged after receiving a refresh last year. It gained a new TRD Sport trim with black 20-inch alloy wheels, Bilstein shocks, TRD front and rear anti-roll bars, and TRD-embroidered floormats.
