Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

With warm hatch performance matched to all-wheel drive surety, the Audi Q2 2.0 TFSI quattro is arguably the sweet spot in the German car maker's compact SUV range.

Pros
Quick without being manically so
Adroit handling
Edgy styling
Seamless seven-speed S tronic transmission
Excellent off-road dynamics

Cons
Plenty of road and wind noise
Some cheap elements in the cabin
Pretty cramped second row
Boot space well short of class leaders

By:

The 2018 Audi Q2 2.0 TFSI Quattro has arrived, and it all makes sense. And there have been a couple of extra little tweaks to the Audi Q2 2018 range.
There isn't much major visual differentiation between the newly added 2.0 TFSI Quattro version and the more affordable petrol model aside from this version rolling on 18-inch wheels as opposed to the 17s of the base petrol, and the entry-level model misses out on body-colour mouldings around the wheels, side skirts and bumpers. Both the quattro models look identical to one another.

Pros
Decent levels of equipment
New petrol AWD model is a peach
A fairly charming thing overall

Cons
Limited boot space in quattro models
Back seat isn't massive
Lacks some storage

By: 
carsguide.com.au

The Audi Q2 is a small SUV with a smart interior, plenty of optional high-tech touches and a raised driving position, but the rear seats are quite upright and therefore not particularly comfy.

Pros
Relaxing to drive
Stylish, well-built interior
Great high-tech options

Cons
Back seats a little too upright
Expensive top-spec models
Poor rear visibility

By: 
carwow.co.uk

There's only one version of the 2018 Lexus ES 300h, but a couple of option packages are worth considering. The Premium package is inexpensive yet adds appealing luxury touches such as a power-adjustable steering wheel, driver-seat memory settings and wood trim (a definite upgrade over the standard piano black pieces).

PROS
Efficient hybrid powertrain returns high fuel economy
Luxurious interior with impressive fit and finish
Plenty of rear legroom, even for tall passengers
Lots of standard driver aids, and plenty of optional ones

CONS
Lots of noise while the electric motor recharges the battery
Enform app suite is a poor substitute for Apple CarPlay/Android Auto
Grabby brakes make it difficult to slow down smoothly
Infotainment system's controller is frustrating to use

If you’re after a smooth, quiet, roomy, comforting luxury sedan that’s still good value, the 2018 Lexus ES may be one of the better choices.

Pros
Silent interior
40-mpg hybrid model
Larger inside than you’d think
Smooth ride
Engine pep

Cons
Brake feel could be better
Remote Touch interface clumsy, distracting
Grille doesn’t gel with rest of car
No Android Auto, Apple CarPlay

By: 
thecarconnection.com

Pros
Interior design
Bright instruments
No touch-sensitive panels
App-compatible multimedia system

Cons
Overpowering spindle grille
Remote Touch interface
Leather upholstery not standard
Unremarkable hybrid gas mileage estimates
