She always likes volvos but I have a hard time with Volvo since you have euro reliability but without german driving dynamics.

Pretty sure I read reviews that put it above the x5 in driving dynamics - for whatever that's worth.

And now it's Chinese reliability.

I actually just watched a 'Head to Head' episode and he liked the GLA AMG better than the Macan.

She likes Mercedes too but figure the AMG might be too much sport for her. Also my buddy is leasing the CLA AMG and does not like it. GLC would be more her style, maybe another options for her.

edit: added the video to my watch later queue
edit2: GLC with rwd and AMG sport package is $43.5
