Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The ultimate Audi crossover is convincingly sporty and properly useful.

Pros
Suave and tech-savvy cabin,
sporty and comfy ride,
more useful than Audi sedans.

Cons
Pricier than the more pragmatic Q7,
distracting touchscreens,
less fun to drive than Audi sedans.

The Audi Q8 is a luxurious, comfortable SUV but it isn't as sporty as its looks suggest, nor is it as practical as a Q7.

Pros
Imposing looks
Indulgent interior
Advanced technology

Cons
Numb handling
Limited versatility
Unproven ride comfort

By:

Audi's Q7 is undoubtedly a practical three-row SUV, but maybe you find it to be a bit plain Jane when compared against sleeker rivals such as the Land Rover Range Rover or Porsche Cayenne.

Pros
Comes well-equipped with many standard features
Comfortable ride and seats for all passengers
High-quality cabin
Front and rear seats offer all-day comfort

Cons
Less practical than the related Q7
New infotainment system can be distracting to use
Throttle response is too slow in the default driving mode
Limited interior storage space

The 2018 Chevrolet Traverse gets a much needed makeover that helps make the big crossover look more premium this time around.

Pros
Bolder style
More upscale exterior
New High Country trim
Efficient 9-speed automatic

Cons
Cargo room is comparable to last gen
How will turbo-4 power work?
Where does Tahoe fit?
Interior a little bland

We think the LT Cloth with the Convenience and Driver Confidence package (which is standard on the all-wheel-drive version) will give you everything you need. Between the LT's basic upgrades and the option package's suite of useful safety features, the LT Cloth strikes a good balance between cost and livability.

Pros
Generous room for passengers in all three rows
Feature-rich standard infotainment system

Cons
Some safety features only available on top trims

By:

The 2018 Chevrolet Traverse ranked #9 in Midsize SUVs. Currently the Chevrolet Traverse has a score of 8.3 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 12 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Roomy, versatile seats
Lots of standard tech
Spacious cargo area
Carlike handling and ride quality

Cons
Unexciting driving dynamics
