Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2018 Buick Encore ranked #3 in Subcompact SUVs. Currently the Buick Encore has a score of 8.2 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 41 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Nice interior with lots of standard features
User-friendly infotainment system
Nimble handling
Excellent predicted reliability

Cons
Underpowered base engine
Higher base price than rivals

By: 
usnews.com

Its interior is comfortable, well designed, and more premium than most of its rivals, but it never quite reaches full-luxury levels of comfort.An ionizing interior air cleaner enhances the Encore’s climate-control system, HD radio joins the list of features in the infotainment arena, and last year’s gas cap is ditched in favor of a capless fuel-filling system. A coppery-gold hue called Coppertino Metallic is also new for 2018.

Pros
Intuitive and holistic infotainment suite,
premium interior,
comfortable ride.

Cons
Disappointing fuel economy,
slightly gawky proportions,
limited active safety features.

The 2018 Buick Encore does the pint-size crossover thing well, although it lacks some safety tech and gets pricey with options.

Pros
Refined interior
Pint-sized dimensions
Good ride quality
Attractive styling inside and out

Cons
Cramped inside
Underpowered base engine
Pricey with options
Lacks some safety tech

The 2018 Honda HR-V blends great rear-seat flexibility and gas mileage, but it’s slow.

Pros
Makes the most of its size
Lots of standard equipment
Great gas mileage
Shift it yourself, if you like
Composed, absorbent ride

Cons
Thin acceleration
Crash-test scores are mixed
Doesn’t offer latest safety tech
Road manners: meh

The 2018 Honda HR-V ranked #3 in Subcompact SUVs. Currently the Honda HR-V has a score of 8.2 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 31 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Adult-friendly back seat
Versatile cargo area

Cons
Awkward available touch screen
Firm front seat cushions
Slow to reach highway speeds

By: 
usnews.com

Honda’s mini ute switches to 2018 with a new paint color—Aegean Blue Metallic—and a new dark-colored wheel design on EX and EX-L trims. Other than that, the HR-V sees no other changes, mechanical or otherwise.

Pros
Fuel-efficient powertrain,
cargo-hauling leader,
handsome styling.

Cons
Lackluster acceleration,
frustrating infotainment system,
short on small-item storage.
