The 2020 Chevy Traverse has dominated auto experts’ road tests with its standard 305-hp 3.6-liter V6 engine that’s complemented by a nine-speed automatic transmission. This SUV is also a standout for its available in-car technology too. The Traverse is fitted with Chevy’s Infotainment 3 system. Standard infotainment features on the Traverse include a 7-inch touchscreen display, a wifi hotspot, Android Auto, and CarPlay.

U.S. News ranks the Audi Q3 as this year’s number one luxury crossover because of its lively handling and extremely posh cabin. The Q3 is comfortable for long road trips and comes standard with genuine leather. What makes the Q3 even better on the inside is the available technology. 

The Q3 comes with many of the features we’ve come to expect such as smartphone integration and a premium sound system.

Apple CarPlay comes standard on this model but Android Auto isn’t available at all.
