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 2018 Subaru Crosstrek is all-new for 2018. It rides on a new chassis, gets an upgraded version of the previous engine, and features a more refined cabin design with additional features.

Pros
Precisely tuned suspension delivers sharp handling and a comfortable ride quality
Spacious interior for a hatchback of its size
Offers optional safety features not typically found in the class
High ground clearance for enhanced off-road capability

CONS
Lower EPA mileage numbers compared to other cars in its class
Slow acceleration on the highway

By: 
edmunds.com

The 2018 Subaru Crosstrek ranked #8 in Subcompact SUVs. Currently the Subaru Crosstrek has a score of 7.8 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 27 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Exceptional rear-seat space for the class
Generous cargo room
Quiet and fuel-efficient CVT
Athletic handling

Cons
Slow to accelerate
Terrible gas mileage with manual transmission

By: 
usnews.com

The Crosstrek’s standard all-wheel drive and 8.7 inches of ground clearance set the stage for adventure. Acceleration is unhurried from a 152-hp 2.0-liter flat-four paired with either a six-speed manual or a continuously variable automatic.

Pros
Adventurous aesthetic,
solid road manners,
genuine off-pavement potential.

Cons
Slow and unrefined powertrain,
uninspired interior,
questionable value.
