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 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 MG GS is the brand’s first SUV, built to rival the Nissan Qashqai, Renault Kadjar and Vauxhall Mokka X. The MG costs less than all those models and is also a little bigger so, in terms of value for money, it’s off to a flying start.

Pros
Decent looks
Punchy engine
Low price

Cons
Cheap feeling cabin
Firm ride
Small boot
