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

By:

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 GMC Terrain is an upscale twin to the Chevy Equinox and looks the part.Much like the last generation, the new Terrain takes a more aggressive approach to the shared GM architecture. The boxy body is bookended by a larger grille and a more sculpted rear end. The Terrain’s shape borrows much from the bigger Acadia, and is part of GMC’s newer design theme for its crossovers.

Pros
Tough-and-tumble look
Top-trim Denali version
Fuel-efficient diesel version
Advanced 9-speed automatic

Cons
So long sliding second row
What will fuel efficiency be?
Can get expensive

By: 
thecarconnection.com

Quiet and comfortable, the Terrain is exactly what we’d expect from the Professional Grade brand; enjoyable driving dynamics are an added surprise. Three turbocharged inline-fours are offered; the 170-hp 1.5-liter and 252-hp 2.0-liter are paired with a nine-speed automatic, while the 137-hp diesel 1.6-liter gets a six-speed unit.

Pros
Stupefying fuel economy,
well-packaged cabin.

Cons
Interior materials are “meh” incarnate,
relaxed acceleration,
high price.
