By:

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

By: 
thecarconnection.com

Pros
Striking exterior design
Lots of standard kit and space
Very low PCP monthly payments
Plenty of personalisation
Good to drive

Cons
Plain interior design
Ride just okay on rough roads
Boot smaller than some rivals
Entry-level 95hp petrol a little underpowered
No Cupra planned (yet)

By: 
parkers.co.uk

The five-door All-New Arona, a front-wheel-drive only SUV, is well placed in this highly popular sector of the car market.It’s available with a choice of six engines, with both the diesel and petrol variants offered in either 95PS or 115 PS form, and the sporty FR 1.5 TSI EVO leaping up to 150 PS.

Pros
Very smart looking inside and out
Good choice of engines
Well equipped and overall good value

Cons
No SatNav on basic model

By: 
drive.co.uk

The Seat Arona is quite possibly the best compact SUV of the moment. Good practicality, economy and solid driving manners are all Arona staples.It lacks the visual creativity of a Hyundai Kona or the customisation of a Citroen C3 Aircross, but its real-world strengths far outweigh having orange door mirrors. It’s a level-headed car for level-headed people.

Pros
Refined 1.0-litre petrol
Ergonomic infotainment system
Good ride

Cons
Humdrum looks
Narrow middle seat
Trim levels that dictate engine choice
