Cayenne, Jaguar is hop­ing to jump into the main­stream with its first SUV, the F-Pace. And early in­di­ca­tions are that it’s a hit, blend­ing the driv­ing dy­nam­ics and clean de­sign of Jaguar’s new­est au­to­mo­biles (es­pe­cially the sporty F-Type road­ster) with Land Rover– wor­thy win­ter ca­pa­bil­i­ties (see its 8.4 inches of clear­ance). Two V-6-pow­ered vari­ants give you up to 380 horse­power to play with—and you will in­deed, given the F-Pace’s lightweight alu­minum makeup.

The 2017 Mercedes-Benz GLC300 is the new­est M-B crossover to pro­vide the right mix for driv­ers who’d like an SUV-styled stance in a more car­like lay­out than the old GLK’s. The 241-horse­power 2.0-liter turbo en­gine does a sur­pris­ingly com­pe­tent job of keep­ing the GLC rolling, and the in­te­rior is what you would ex­pect from the M-B brand. A 362-horse­power twin-turbo ver­sion is avail­able for fast types. Cus­tom­iz­a­ble set­tings en­sure a bet­ter-than-SUV-ride; 56.5 cu­bic feet of stor­age means lots of room for lots of gear. ●
