Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

Buying or leasing a subcompact premium crossover is a great way for you to own a top-tier luxury-branded vehicle without paying much money. But while these vehicles feature attractive starting prices, the price adds up quickly once you start tacking on expected luxury-oriented features such as leather seating or a sunroof. Luckily, somebody must have forgotten to tell Audi because the 2018 Q3 is feature-rich and much less expensive than its rivals.

Pros
Lots of features at a price lower than rivals
Interior is lined with high-quality materials
Rides comfortably on rough roads
Cabin is hushed at highway speeds

Cons
Handling and acceleration lag behind class rivals
Backseat is a tight fit for adults
Ranks at the back of the pack for fuel economy
Infotainment controller is awkwardly placed, and no USB interface

The 2018 Audi Q3 ranked #6 in Luxury Subcompact SUVs. Currently the Audi Q3 has a score of 7.7 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 25 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Comfortable ride quality
Upscale cabin

Cons
Underpowered on the highway
Few standard features

The 2018 Audi Q3 offers a fun-to-drive alternative to the entry compact luxury car, but with more utility. Versus its rivals, it delivers more ride comfort and interior refinement, but less fuel efficiency.

Pros
Smart packaging for tight spaces
Frisky turbocharged engine
Great control interface, maps
Excellent ride quality
Pert handling

Cons
Tight rear seat
More a hatchback than an SUV
Lackluster gas mileage
No manual here
No forward crash prevention system

The 2018 Ford Edge has an eager feel and crisp design; safety scores and Sport ride quality give pause.The Edge satisfies more than a few needs. It’s sleeker than the truck-infused Expedition, even the Explorer. It’s more spacious than the Escape. It’s also devoid of any off-road pretense, any faux-SUV ruggedness.

Pros
Quick steering
Cabin’s muted details
Wide range of engines
Composed ride on small-tire models
Edge Sport lives up to name

Cons
Seats are a big letdown
Real-world fuel economy
Stiff Sport ride

The 2018 Ford Edge ranked #9 in Midsize SUVs. Currently the Ford Edge has a score of 8.3 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 28 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
User-friendly infotainment system
Spacious, comfortable, quiet cabin
Above-average fuel economy with standard engine
Smooth, carlike handling

Cons
Transmission can be slow to shif

If all you need is a basic crossover without having to worry about a bunch of pricey options, the SE is your best bet. But for most Edge shoppers, we think the SEL is the way to go. It offers more amenities and access to options

Pros
Ride quality is smoother than many of its competitors
Plenty of space for passengers and luggage
Fuel-efficient and performance-oriented engines

Cons
Transmission is occasionally slow to react
Base engine may be too sluggish for some drivers
