Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The latest BMW X3 is well worth considering if you’re looking for a family SUV with a spacious and plush interior that’s relaxing to drive.

Pros
Spacious cabin
Practical boot
Quiet and comfortable to drive

Cons
Desirable options cost extra
Looks like the old car
Cabin doesn’t look very exciting

By: 
carwow.co.uk

The X3 also becomes a more full-fledged member of the BMW family with its upgraded interior. And at a time when some of the brand’s passenger-car offerings have strayed from BMW’s historically strong dynamics, the new X3 makes an encouraging showing there as well.

Pros
Chassis tuning like BMWs of old,
improved interior,
plenty of passenger and cargo space.

Cons
Imprecise variable-ratio steering,
goofy electronic shifter,
the entry-level four pales next to the six-cylinder.

With more personality than most small crossovers, the Fiat 500X is definitely worth a look.Fiat has a real chance to win over American buyers with the 500X, which is certainly its most mainstream offering here—perhaps ever.
With the 500X, Fiat finally has a mainstream vehicle with widespread appeal. It's a compact crossover SUV that shares running gear with the Jeep Renegade. Rivals include the Honda HR-V, Buick Encore and Chevy Trax, and the Mazda CX-3.

Pros
Tidy exterior styling
Just right proportions
Above average ride and handling
More characterful than most rivals

Cons
Automatic gearbox can be touchy
Sunroof steals head room, especially in back
Small infotainment screens
Not an off roader

By: 
thecarconnection.com

The number of available trims has decreased from five to three, and options packages have been consolidated and renamed. Otherwise, the 2017 Fiat 500X is unchanged.

Pros
Distinctive and well-made cabin with easy-to-use tech controls
Reasonably priced
Offers safety features not usually available in this class.

Cons
So-so fuel economy
Confused and clunky automatic transmission
Meager cargo room.

By:

The 2017 FIAT 500X ranks 10 out of 12 Subcompact SUVs. The 2017 Fiat 500X may have supermodel looks compared to its subcompact SUV rivals, but this chic SUV ranks toward the back of the pack for its unrefined engines, few standard features, and low predicted reliability rating.

Pros
Upmarket interior
Very maneuverable
Easy-to-use infotainment system

Cons
Lackluster engines
Few standard features
