Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2018 BMW X3 ventures into M territory, but doesn’t lose sight of its SUV duties.

Pros
Nimble, sedan-like handling
Excellent interior space and storage
Great turbo-6 powertrain
Standard all-wheel drive
M40i a blast to drive

Cons
Base 6.5-inch infotainment display
Forward-collision warnings an option
World’s most expensive Apple CarPlay
Off-road? More all-weather

Though it has sporty handling, powerful engines, and roomy seats, the fully redesigned 2018 BMW X3 is only a midpack luxury compact SUV. Its drawbacks include a higher-than-average starting price and fewer standard features than the competition.

Pros
Agile handling
Strong engine lineup
Spacious cargo area and cabin
Premium interior

Cons
Above-average starting price
Minimal standard luxury features

By: 
usnews.com

For 2017, a new GT trim replaces the Limited, adding a monochromatic exterior with sporty flourishes, and the base SXT can be ordered with just two rows of seats. Otherwise, there are only minor feature changes, including the new Anodized Platinum package with two-tone leather upholstery for the Citadel trim.

Pros
Unusually spacious third-row seats
8.4-inch touchscreen is one of the best in the class
Assertive acceleration with the V8 engine
Exceptional towing capacity for a crossover
Real off-road capabilities with 4WD and low-range gearing.

Cons
Lackluster fuel economy (especially with the V8)
Bluetooth streaming audio isn't standard on SXT.

The 2017 Dodge Durango tows like an SUV, drives like a crossover--but crash test scores are a dull spot.
Somewhere in the grey zone between body-on-frame SUV and car-like crossover, sits the Dodge Durango. The 5- or 7-seater isn't exactly either: it's a unibody SUV with real towing ability, on the same blurry part of the spectrum as its stablemate, the Jeep Grand Cherokee (and the old Mercedes M- and GL-Class, too).

Pros
Hemi V-8 performance and character
Feels substantial and refined
Confident steering feel
V-6 gets engine stop-start

Cons
Third-row access is difficult
Ride can be busy
Gas mileage is so very low

By: 
thecarconnection.com

The 2017 Dodge Durango ranks 8 out of 18 Midsize SUVs. The 2017 Dodge Durango has an abundance of cargo room, and its third row is one of the few in the class with sufficient space for adults. It has a comfortable, agile ride, and one of the highest towing capacities in the class. However, its upper trims can be pricier than those of its rivals.

Pros
Powerful optional V8 engine
Good cargo capacity
Intuitive infotainment system
Comfortable ride

Cons
Expensive upper trims
Poor fuel economy with V8
