Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2017 Buick Enclave is a good-looking SUV for families and one of the better-aging GM cars in recent memory.The Buick Enclave has lived longer than many thought it would. Crossover SUVs are hot properties these days, and aging models typically don't perform as well in the showroom as newer models.
But the Enclave has been killing it, remaining one of Buick's best sellers almost a decade down the road. It's our favorite of GM's big front-drive-based utility vehicles, which also includes its siblings, the Chevrolet Traverse and GMC Acadia.

Pros
Classy exterior
Spacious second row captain's chairs
Quality materials
Smooth ride

Cons
Nosedive in braking
Can add up in options
Lagging behind in fuel economy

Do you need a big three-row crossover SUV that can shuttle lots of people and cargo? The 2017 Buick Enclave could be for you. Besides its utilitarian abilities, it's also pleasant to drive. But read more to learn why some rival models might serve you better.
The 2017 Buick Enclave gets a new Sport Touring edition with a satin black grille and distinctive 20-inch chromed alloy wheels with satin black detailing.

Pros
Smooth ride even when the road isn't
Seating for up to eight and cargo space to match
Peace of mind that comes with top safety scores.

Cons
It's a big crossover and drives like one
Disappointing acceleration and fuel economy
Infotainment and climate controls are behind the times
Interior quality could leave some wanting more.

The 2017 Buick Enclave ranks 10 out of 18 Midsize SUVs. In spite of segment-leading cargo space, a handsome interior, and a rich offering of standard equipment, the Buick Enclave sits in the middle of the midsize SUV segment because its V6 can struggle under a full load.

Pros
Composed, comfortable ride
Spacious seating for up to eight
Lots of room for cargo

Cons
Fuel economy is below average

Another cushy compact crossover may or may not be what the world needs now, but it’s exactly what Infiniti needs. Enter the swoopy, stub-tailed QX30—which Infiniti is pitching as a “premium active crossover”—to give the brand an entrant in a segment poised for explosive growth. We tested an all-wheel-drive QX30 and found it does a reasonable job of being a cushy compact crossover, with its 8.0 inches of ground clearance, skid plates, and roof rails joining the creature comforts and chrome that come with being an Infiniti.

But those are crossovers. And as we’ve stated before, the QX30 Sport is not really a crossover, but rather a Euro hatch, one that Infiniti happily did not leave in Europe.

Pros
Expressive design, composed chassis, upscale interior.

Cons
Cramped in some dimensions, modest cargo area, transmission needs a Normal mode.

The 2017 Infiniti QX30 is a new addition to the automaker’s lineup and is its first entry to the growing luxury subcompact crossover segment.

Slotting below the aging QX50, the 2017 Infiniti QX30 is a small luxury crossover that’s available in front- or all-wheel-drive configurations. Compared to the Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class (the car on which it’s based), the QX30 features a more curvaceous exterior design.

The Infiniti QX30 is shares its platform, engine and transmission with the Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class, GLA-Class, and the not-for-U.S.-consumption A-Class hatchback

Noise inside the cabin is kept to a minimum thanks to a good amount of sound insulation and interior trim materials are high in quality. The dash layout is unique because of its asymmetrical design, but the Infiniti InTouch multimedia interface could be more intuitive. Nissan and Infiniti’s “Zero Gravity” seats come standard and have plenty of support without sacrificing comfort. Although the QX30’s rear seats can accommodate adults but head- and legroom are limited. The low roof and small rear window, however, means rear visibility is compromised due to the car’s dramatic exterior styling.

Pros
Sporty handling and smooth ride
Torque-rich turbocharged engine
Well-insulated cabin

Cons
Cargo space is on the small side
Limited rear passenger room
Steering is a little heavy

You don't have to pay a fortune to get a luxury-branded vehicle these days. The new 2017 Infiniti QX30 is reasonably priced and yet offers you more style and performance than the typical small crossover SUV. Read more to learn if the QX30 has everything you're looking for.

Infiniti considers its all-new 2017 QX30 a combination of coupe, hatchback and crossover. The way it straddles these body types can be advantageous. From a driver enjoyment perspective, you will find the QX30 more athletic and better handling than a typical SUV. Compared to a traditional sedan, the QX30's hatchback design gives you greater versatility, both in terms of its taller ride height and increased cargo capacity. Then there's the QX30's coupe-like styling, which helps it look sportier than the typical sedan or crossover. The question you might wonder, though, is whether this extensive blending results in a vehicle that delivers the best of both worlds or is diluted to the point of not excelling at anything.

Pros
Easy to maneuver around town
High-quality interior looks sharp and comes pretty well equipped
Multiple driver assistance features are available to help keep you safe.

Cons
Sport models ride firm compared to other available versions
Noticeable amount of wind and road noise at highway speeds
Cargo capacity is smaller than rival crossovers
Reflective interior trim pieces are distracting in bright-light situations.
