Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2017 BMW X5 remains one of the top picks in the very competitive midsize luxury SUV class. Strong performance, a luxurious cabin and an efficient diesel engine option help distinguish it from its accomplished rivals.

Pros
Strong performance from every model
Luxurious and comfortable cabin that lives up to its price tag
Optional diesel engine is as potent as it is efficient
A long list of optional features allows for a wide range of customization.

Cons
Less legroom in the second row compared to some of its competitors
Optional third-row seats are tight even for children.

The 2017 BMW X5 boasts a solid set of powertrains and features that move the sedan toward the top of any list of luxury SUVs.
BMW's charge into every SUV segment hasn't watered down the one that started it all. The 2017 BMW X5 is a benchmark for luxury SUVs and the bar by which many are compared. Its off-road ability is eclipsed only by its on-road manners, and its interior style and comfort make this SUV a must-see for shoppers.

Pros
Bright and stunning interior cabin
Very advanced safety features available
Strong powertrains, top to bottom
Comfortable and quick

Cons
Exterior is languishing, a bit
Very small third row
Price can balloon up to six figures (!) now
Hybrid isn't very fuel efficient either.

Visually, this hybrid X5 is differentiated only by minor details, such as the door on the front fender that houses the charge port and the model-specific badging inside and out. In this way, this X5 mostly hides the fact that it's electrified; you can even opt for 19- or 20-inch wheels or an M Sport package, further obscuring the fact that it’s designed to save energy, not waste it M-style.
One of the hybrid’s disadvantages is its smaller cargo hold, which shrinks significantly in order to make room for the lithium-ion batteries. And in a prototype that we drove last year, the switch between electric and gasoline-fueled travel was discernible, although we expect that issue to be ironed out by the time of launch. Taking into consideration the considerable extra heft and the expected higher cost, drivers of all stripes—eco-minded, performance-minded, and everyone in between—might conclude that they’re better off with a nonhybrid gasoline or diesel X5. But as we know, it’s government regulations that are providing the impetus behind automakers’ rush to plug-ins, not consumer demand—at least not yet.

The 2017 Buick Encore reaches for the compact-luxury stars, but it falls shy on styling and front-seat space.When it was new in 2013, the Buick Encore was virtually alone on the automotive landscape as one of few small crossover SUVs. Today, that's a crowded niche, with pricey and prestigious rivals like the BMW X1, Mercedes-Benz GLA, and Audi Q3 as numerous as the more affordable ones (Trax, Renegade, 500X, CX-3, and HR-V).
A 2017 update aims to keep it competitive. Most noticeable is the new front end, but the updated interior, complete with an 8.0-inch touchscreen and Apple Car Play and Android Auto, make it easier to live with on a daily basis.

Pros
Quiet, calm interior
Well-equipped
Back seat fits adults
Two-tone trim is tony
Cargo space is ample

Cons
Base engine's sluggish acceleration
Mediocre gas mileage
Cabin feels narrow
Are hatchbacks luxury shapes?

By:

A quiet cabin, user-friendly technology and city-friendly compact size make the 2017 Buick Encore worth a look if more conventional crossover SUVs simply seem too large. Modest performance and tight quarters limit the Encore's appeal, however.

Pros
Quiet interior on the highway
Excellent crash-test scores
Small engines deliver solid fuel economy
Long list of tech and safety features.

Cons
Tepid performance from base engine
Small cargo area can't swallow much luggage.

By:

The 2017 Buick Encore ranks 3 out of 12 Subcompact SUVs. The 2017 Buick Encore is ranked highly among subcompact SUVs because it does what you want – and does it well. Its small footprint gives you excellent maneuverability, yet its spacious interior provides enough room for you, your friends, and their stuff, all wrapped in a classy, upscale package.

Pros
User-friendly technology
Generous list of standard features
Luxurious interior

Cons
Underpowered base engine
Narrow rear seats
