Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

It may not have the bulletproof branding of some competitors, but the RLX is not without charms. Its old beak grille has finally been replaced by a prettier pentagonal nose, and a sharp 10-speed automatic now pairs to the standard 310-hp V-6 engine. Our choice is the Sport Hybrid, which uses a 377-hp powertrain derived from the one used in the NSX and has Acura’s SH-AWD system to aid handling. We like driving the RLX, but the lack of Apple CarPlay and Android Auto still stings.

Pros
Strong performance,
comfortable seats,
standard driver aids,
high value.

Cons
Invisible styling,
slow navigation system,
complex two-screen infotainment interface,
subpar paint quality.

The 2019 Acura RLX wraps a forward-thinking powertrain in a comfortable but cookie-cutter package.

Pros
Supple ride
Supportive front seats
Good fuel economy for hybrid
Excellent audio system
Hybrid all-wheel drive

Cons
Banal sedan shape
Dual-screen infotainment
Dated cabin styling
Small rear seat
No options

PROS

Long list of standard safety and convenience features
Spacious cabin and seating, especially for rear passengers

CONS
Dual-screen infotainment system isn't intuitive to use
Interior design looks dated
Steering feels disconnected from the road
Apple CarPlay and Android Auto aren't available

Ford's previous form in crossovers is a bit spotty. Spoiler alert: this one's a good 'un

Pros
Engine,chassis,
room,clever ideas.
A well-rounded effort

Cons
Ford needs it, but do we?
We'll just take a Focus

With its agile cornering and surprisingly nippy performance, the Ford Puma will put a bigger smile on your face than any other small SUV. But it’s a car you can buy with your sensible hat on, too, thanks to its low CO2 emissions, excellent real-world fuel economy, a clever boot and attractive monthly PCP costs.

Pros
Great fun to drive
Remarkable blend of performance and fuel economy
Big, clever boot

Cons
Rear space is adequate rather than outstanding
Visibility could be better
VW T-Roc is more comfortable and refined

The all-new Ford Puma SUV has the potential to really shake up the well stocked compact crossover class. Some rather drab-looking dashboard and interior materials disappoint, but in other areas it’s punching to be the best car of its type. It’s good to drive, and one of the most practical models in this highly competitive segment, too. We can’t wait to test one in the UK; even with a surfeit of new rivals – and those rather divisive looks – Ford appears to be onto a winner with the Puma.
