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.

By:

For 2018, the RAV4 gains a new Adventure trim level. It combines the XLE's equipment with the SE's sportier styling elements, then adds a few of its own styling flourishes and a tow package as well as raises ground clearance from 6.1 inches to 6.5. It also gets exclusive access to a new Cold Weather package that adds a variety of heated items. Interestingly, the SE trim level also gains the same extra ground clearance, which seems counter to its sportier, on-road mission.

PROS
One of the largest, most versatile cargo areas in the segment
Advanced safety and driver aids come standard
Rides smoothly in a variety of conditions

CONS
Ho-hum driving experience
Interior has a utilitarian look and feel
Modest acceleration from the only engine

By: 
edmunds.com

The 2018 Toyota RAV4 ranked #12 in Compact SUVs. Currently the Toyota RAV4 has a score of 7.8 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 44 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Lots of standard safety features
Large cargo area for the class

Cons
Uninspiring interior styling and materials

By: 
usnews.com

The 2018 Toyota RAV4 has a lot going for it, including a hybrid model, but you’d be wise to cross-shop its rivals as well.

Pros
Roomy, well-packaged interior
Lots of standard safety tech
Wide range of trim levels
Rides well
Thrifty hybrid

Cons
Not all that polished
Adventure is an oddball
Quirky looks
Fuel economy is mid-pack
