The 2018 BMW X4 xDrive28i is already a potent little performer and will satisfy the majority of drivers. Almost all of the features from the range-topping M40i are available as options, so you won't be missing much other than the overabundance of power.

PROS
Powerful yet efficient engine choices
Interior quality well represents the luxury class
Ride quality is smooth yet handling is sporty

CONS
Rearward visibility is compromised
Cargo capacity is much smaller than rivals
Limited rear-seat space

The 2018 BMW X4 takes today’s trend toward swoopier SUVs and packages it with a roundel up front. It’s entertaining and a looker, but not all that practical.

Pros
Compelling shape
Exciting performance from M40i
Well-equipped at base trim level
Excellent 8-speed automatic

Cons
Pricey at more than $48,000 to start
$2,000 for CarPlay? Really?
Rear seat head room is compromised
Cargo area is oddly shaped

The 2018 Buick Encore ranked #3 in Subcompact SUVs. Currently the Buick Encore has a score of 8.2 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 41 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Nice interior with lots of standard features
User-friendly infotainment system
Nimble handling
Excellent predicted reliability

Cons
Underpowered base engine
Higher base price than rivals

By: 
usnews.com

Its interior is comfortable, well designed, and more premium than most of its rivals, but it never quite reaches full-luxury levels of comfort.An ionizing interior air cleaner enhances the Encore’s climate-control system, HD radio joins the list of features in the infotainment arena, and last year’s gas cap is ditched in favor of a capless fuel-filling system. A coppery-gold hue called Coppertino Metallic is also new for 2018.

Pros
Intuitive and holistic infotainment suite,
premium interior,
comfortable ride.

Cons
Disappointing fuel economy,
slightly gawky proportions,
limited active safety features.

By:

The 2018 Buick Encore does the pint-size crossover thing well, although it lacks some safety tech and gets pricey with options.

Pros
Refined interior
Pint-sized dimensions
Good ride quality
Attractive styling inside and out

Cons
Cramped inside
Underpowered base engine
Pricey with options
Lacks some safety tech
