Audi's newest wagon on sale in the United States is the 2020 A6 Allroad, and we've taken a second look at the handsome family hauler. The vehicle is what's known as a soft-roader in automotive parlance, and its key competition is the Volvo V90 Cross Country, as well as the slew of luxury crossover SUVs.

One of the SUVs going up against the A6 Allroad is the Acura MDX, a redesigned version of which has been revealed for the 2022 model year. The new SUV has been made more athletic thanks in part to a new double-wishbone front suspension, as well as a planned Type S version.

An updated Jeep Compass boasting a new dash and possibly a new powertrain is on the way. The Chinese-market version was unveiled in November and now the version for the rest of the world has been spotted.
