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.

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

No doubt they will contribute to the RAV4's status as the best-selling small crossover SUV on the market.The RAV4 is completely redesigned for 2019.

Pros
Quiet interior and comfortable ride quality
Abundant cargo and passenger space
Updated tech interface with lots of USB and power ports

Cons
Merely average power from base powertrain
No other engines available
Stiff, uncomfortable front passenger seat
Engine sounds strained at full throttle

By:

With a dollop of refinement, the 2019 Toyota RAV4 would be a solid home run.

Pros
Looks great
Wide range of trim levels
Strong performing RAV4 Hybrid
Active safety tech standard

Cons
Interior space compromises
Could use more sound deadening
Pricey with options
Confusing fuel economy story
