Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2018 Buick Enclave hones its appeal with beautiful style, much-improved handling, and no-nonsense technology.

Pros
Expressive sheet metal
Spare and elegant cockpit
Good third-row space
Much-improved handling
Still rides smoothly

Cons
Base seats are cloth
All-wheel drive is part-time
Fuel economy still just average
Best safety features not pervasive
Pricey Avenir trim level is more a feature-unlock code

The Avenir name is something new entirely. It's a new sub-brand that Buick is introducing on the Enclave that adds another layer of luxury onto the standard model. It will sit above the Premium model that was previously the most feature-rich trim level offered on the Enclave. Standard features on the Enclave Avenir include a unique mesh grille, 20-inch wheels and exclusive interior colors and materials. The individual features aren't striking on their own, but taken together they do make this Enclave look a step above anything offered on its predecessor.
Apart from the Avenir upgrades, the Enclave follows much the same formula as the previous model. It's a spacious three-row crossover with a standard V6 and a new nine-speed automatic transmission. The engine delivers 302 horsepower to either the front wheels or all four wheels on all-wheel-drive models. Towing capacity is up to 5,000 pounds and we expect overall mileage to improve slightly.

The fully redesigned 2018 version is hugely important as the brand’s grandest offering.Buick’s latest three-row ute succeeds in being a marked improvement over its predecessor in every meaningful way.

Pros
Shapely design,
tons of usable space,
refined road manners,
lots of available features.

Cons
Prices climb quickly with options,
a tight third row for three,
some cheap bits still visible.

The Ford EcoSport looks to be a worthwhile offering in the subcompact segment.Although the Ford EcoSport is just now arriving in the United States, the automaker was actually one of the first to get in on the pint-size crossover game.

Pros
Cheeky style
Clean-looking interior
Choice of powertrains
Tailgate door could be useful

Cons
No AWD with 3-cylinder
Has been on sale globally for a long time
Tailgate may also be inconvenien

The EcoSport truly embraces the tiny ethos. It’s 16.8 inches shorter in length than an Escape and rides on a 6.7-inch-shorter wheelbase. Even within its competitive set—which includes the Jeep Renegade, the Honda HR-V, and the Chevrolet Trax, among others—the EcoSport is the runt of the litter. The Ford’s wheelbase is the shortest of the group, and most of its competitors are at least a half-foot longer overall.

Pros
User-friendly tech,
park it anywhere,
all-wheel drive is available.

Cons
Tight back seat,
modest power,
drinks gas like a bigger SUV.

Pros
Cute-ute styling fits with Ford showroom
Very nice interior materials
Lots of headroom
Large cargo area with seats folded
Sync3, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto available

Cons

Unknown horsepower figures
Lesser trim models won’t have 8-inch screen
Cargo room is tight with seats up
Unknown fuel economy ratings
