Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

In the Q3 Sportback, Audi introduces a racier version of its newest upcoming Q3 small SUV, and it's bound to attract plenty of admirers since it gives up very little in the way of space.

Pros
Like a perfectly scaled-down Audi Q8
Great looks inside and out
Premium cabin with new levels of detail and trim work
Fun to drive (both engines)
45 TFSI feels like a proper hot hatch in the corners
Good ride comfort with adaptive dampers
Good safety and tech

Cons
There's a big gap in performance between the 35–45 TFSI
Expect a similar-size gap in prices, too

The Audi Q3 Sportback is a more stylish alternative to your average boxy SUV, although others are more fun to drive and have more room for passengers.

Pros
Big boot
Stylish looks
Plenty of standard equipment

Cons
Cramped back seats
Alternatives are more fun to drive
Automatic gearbox is a bit sluggish

The 2020 Audi Q3 blends practicality, quality, and fun in a chunky but city-friendly package.

Pros
Lots of standard tech…
Punchy turbo engine
Hot hatchback handling
Standard all-wheel drive

Cons
…But best features cost a lot more
Lackluster fuel economy
Gets expensive fast

The 2019 Volvo XC40 ranked #1 in Luxury Subcompact SUVs. Currently the Volvo XC40 has a score of 9.1 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 15 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Powerful engine
Smooth ride and nimble handling
Posh interior
Lengthy features list

Cons
Below-average cargo capacity

By: 
usnews.com

The 2019 Volvo XC40 is a compact luxury crossover with seating for five. Two trim levels are available: the Momentum and the R-Design. Every XC40 comes loaded with luxury and safety features, including LED headlights, leather upholstery, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, lane keeping assist, and forward collision warning and mitigation. Upgrading to the R-Design doesn't cost much more and adds exterior styling enhancements (a black roof and black window surrounds, among others), larger wheels and more luxury features. Each is also available with several available features packages and stand-alone options.

PROS
Pleasing interior layout with premium materials
Clever small-item storage and cargo solutions
Plenty of standard and available safety features

CONS
Cargo area is small for the class
Steep learning curve for touchscreen interface
Rear bench seat isn't comfortable for tall passengers

By:

The 2019 Volvo XC40 upends tradition—and traditional style—in mostly acceptable ways, and kicks off the car-subscription era with a stylish bang.

Pros
Clever interior features
Competent turbo-4 in T5 trims
Smooth 8-speed automatic
World-beating subscription model
Smart 9.0-inch touchscreen as standard

Cons
Exterior can get funky—and not the good kind
Frustrating shift knob
A Swedish car with extra-cost heated seats?
Rear bench is best for two
Will a Netflix car for broadcast buyers work?
