Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The Cadillac Escalade ESV is a longer version of the Escalade. The ESV is a large, luxurious SUV that delivers performance and style. Classy and powerful, it looks great for a night on the town or can haul everything needed for a weekend getaway.The ESV features a long wheelbase and an increase in total length, greatly enhancing third-row seat legroom and rear cargo space. Available as a 4x2 or 4x4, all Escalade models are powered by a 420-hp 6.2-liter V8 with direct injection, Active Fuel Management and E85 compatibility, mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. Standard equipment includes Magnetic Ride Control, electric power steering, front active aero shutters, power liftgate, LED headlamps, stability control, remote start, HD radio, CUE information and media control system with embedded navigation, passive entry with passive start, a rear-view camera and seven airbags including an inboard driver seat-mounted center airbag.

pros
Very capable
Strong engine and quick acceleration
Luxurious interior

Cons
Poor fuel economy
Not a very comfortable ride
Brakes could be stronger

From the B-pillar forward, the XC60 could be mistaken for the bigger SUV. The upright fascia houses a similar grille, flanked by high-mounted headlights adorned with Volvo’s Thor’s Hammer sideways-T LED light graphic. The transverse-engine XC60 self-consciously sucks in its front overhang, and the hood traces a relatively straight line to the base of the windshield.

Pros
Classy looks inside and out,
roomier rear seat,
improved handling,
lots of standard equipment.

Cons
Nervous steering,
no front-drive model at launch.

The 2018 Volvo XC60 ranked #7 in Luxury Compact SUVs. Currently the Volvo XC60 has a score of 8.3 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 17 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Impressive list of standard and available safety features
Smooth, comfortable ride
Outstanding towing rating
Generous overall cargo area

Cons
Enthusiast drivers should look elsewhere
Low predicted reliability

By: 
usnews.com

With the new 2018 XC60, Volvo has cached all the XC90’s good data, and trimmed some fat from its code.

Pros
Superlative safety equipment
Interior is achingly on-trend
Eager turbo-4 performance
Excellent packaging
Plug-in hybrid option

Cons
Exterior’s a little me-too
Lifeless steering in most modes
Hefty in most editions
