Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

It’s easy to see why buyers increasingly pick luxury compact crossovers like the 2019 Audi Q5; it’s comfortable and quick with plenty of room.

Pros
Good powertrains
Useful technology
Standard active safety features
Comfortable interior…

Cons
…but it’s a little boring
Ditto on the exterior
Pricey top trims

By:

Audi has made a number of features standard for 2019, including heated front seats, a seven-inch gauge-cluster display, rear electric child locks, the Audi Connect CARE telematics system, and aluminum trim around the windows. The mid-range Premium Plus model now offers navigation as standard, a wireless smartphone charging pad, and rear-seat USB ports. The Black Optics package is now available on Premium Plus and Prestige models and includes 20-inch dark gray wheels and blacked-out exterior trim.

Pros
Gutsy and efficient powertrain,
high-tech features,
expensively tailored looks.

Cons
Not a cargo-hauling leader,
LATCH anchors difficult to access,
awkward cupholder location.

A few more features are standard this year.New 7-inch driver information display.Premium Plus trim adds standard navigation and wireless phone charging.The 2019 Q5 now offers a few more standard luxuries, including heated front seats and an upgraded driver display and gauge cluster. The midtrim model now includes navigation and wireless phone charging (previously it was an option). They are small changes, but they're enough to keep the Q5 fresh.

PROS
Recent chassis changes deliver a smoother ride than before
Quiet, comfortable cabin features top-notch interior craftsmanship
All-wheel drive comes standard
Wide array of technology options

CONS
Only one engine offered
Diminished space for luggage behind rear seats

The Escape is fundamentally unchanged for 2018, but there are some tweaks to the lineup and to its standard-equipment offerings.The SEL comes standard with leather-trimmed seating, a power liftgate, heated exterior mirrors, an 8.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system, and LED running lights.

Pros
Graceful turbocharged 2.0-liter engine,
smooth ride,
attractive and intuitive infotainment system.

Cons
Less rear-seat and cargo space than the class leaders,
turbo engines return mediocre fuel economy.

The 2018 Ford Escape has the road manners of another kind of car—but don't worry, it still works well as a crossover.

Pros
Tough-hatch lines
Ample cargo bin
Wonderfully taut handling
Tech options aplenty
Brisk 2.0-liter acceleration

Cons
Busy, space-robbing dash
Firm seats, if you’re not into that
Not much SUV, if you’re into that
Optimistic EPA ratings
