2020 Acura MDX -- Wonderfully refined. The third-row seat is pretty tight, but the equipment-to-price ratio is appealing.
2020 Audi Q7 -- Lots of space, tech, safety and sophistication.
2020 BMW X6 -- Just in case you didn't need quite so much rear passenger and cargo space, and would prefer something with more "out there" styling. An all-new generation debuts for this year.
2020 Porsche Cayenne -- Doesn't have the X5's 3-row versatility, but delivers awesome performance and undeniable Porsche cachet.
2020 Volvo XC90 -- Not particularly a driver's machine, but comes with its own cool factor and lots of tech. Integrated child booster seats are available.
Used Land Rover Range Rover -- There's nothing like a Range Rover, and a pristine low-mileage example can be acquired for the price of a new X5. Check out Land Rover's certified pre-owned (CPO) program.
