The 2018 Buick Envision ranked #11 in Luxury Compact SUVs. Currently the Buick Envision has a score of 7.9 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 25 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Peppy optional turbocharged engine
Comfortable, roomy seats
Lots of tech features

Cons
Underwhelming base engine
Numb handling
Less interior opulence than luxury rivals

Among small luxury crossover SUVs, the 2018 Buick Envision might be worth your attention. Though its exterior styling is generic, it comes with a generous amount of features for the price and has an attractive interior trimmed in high-quality materials. It slots between the compact Encore and larger Enclave in Buick's portfolio. As such, it's pretty easy to maneuver around town but still has a decent amount of interior and cargo space.

Pros
The cabin is quiet at highway speeds
You get a lot of features for the money

Cons
Weak acceleration with base engine
Unsettled ride quality at times
Cargo capacity is below average for the class

The 2018 Infiniti QX30 stands apart from the crowd based on its styling, but it’s also worth considering for its zippy handling.

Pros
Stand-out style
Comfortable, refined interior
Handles well
Lots of trim levels

Cons
Tight inside
Twitchy throttle feel
Styling overwrought to some
Expensive with options

The 2018 Infiniti QX30 ranked #4 in Luxury Subcompact SUVs. Currently the Infiniti QX30 has a score of 7.8 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 14 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Handsome cabin with high-grade materials
Lots of features for a low price
Longer warranty than rivals

Cons
Small cargo area
Poor rearward visibility

If you've landed on the Infiniti QX30 as your next vehicle, we recommend the Premium AWD trim. It not only comes with a number of great features, but it also offers the Technology package that helps to alleviate the QX30's blind spots.

PROS
Strong acceleration and sharp handling
High-quality interior materials
Powerful and confident brakes
Interior controls are easy to locate and use

CONS
Less usable cargo space than its competitors
Interior quarters are cramped, especially for rear passengers
Drive modes are either laggy or frenetic
Ride comfort is compromised by the sporty suspension
