Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

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?

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.

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

The 2017 Cadillac XT5 ranks 16 out of 21 Luxury Midsize SUVs. The new-for-2017 Cadillac XT5 has a well-built cabin and spacious rear seats. It also has a long list of features, including several driver assistance options. However, many class rivals have more impressive engines, and the XT5's handling ability draws mixed reviews.

Pros
First-rate cabin materials
Spacious rear seats
Excellent safety ratings

Cons
Uninspiring engine

By: 
usnews.com

The new 2017 Cadillac XT5 combines a large interior with a pleasing ride, plentiful outward visibility and a striking design. If you're shopping in the competitive compact luxury SUV segment, the XT5 is worth a look.

Pros
Pleasing ride and handling
Generous interior space
Excellent forward visibility.

Cons
Only one engine choice
Tech interface can frustrate
All-wheel drive not available in base trim.

The 2017 Cadillac XT5 is an evolutionary improvement over the SRX in most ways, but it’s part of a larger leap for Cadillac.
The 2017 Cadillac XT5 is the successor to the GM luxury brand's smallest SUV, the SRX. New this model year, it's a design that lays some heavy bets on lighter-weight construction, a library-themed interior, and other upscale cues that Cadillac hopes will lure away buyers from the likes of the Audi Q5 and Benz GLC.

Pros
Fine details everywhere inside
Suite of fuel-efficiency and safety tech
Easy drivability, perky powertrain
Softer, less chiseled look than SRX

Cons
Rear seat still a bit tight across
Lacks the sport-sedan pedigree of some rivals
No hybrid in the lineup
CarPlay outshines Cadillac's own CUE
