Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2018 Cadillac XT5 ranked #19 in Luxury Midsize SUVs. Currently the Cadillac XT5 has a score of 7.9 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 30 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
High-class cabin styling and materials
Composed highway cruiser
Extensive list of advanced safety features available

Cons
No meaty engines available
Dull handling

By:

Cadillac has changed next to nothing for 2018, introducing only a new optional exterior color: Harbor Blue Metallic (all of the XT5’s available paint colors, save for Radiant Silver Metallic, cost an additional $625 to $1225). The EPA has reduced highway fuel-efficiency ratings for both front- and all-wheel-drive variants, but there have been no actual mechanical updates. On the warranty front, last year’s four-year or 50,000-mile complimentary scheduled maintenance plan has been reduced to three years or 36,000 miles of coverage.

Pros
Quiet interior,
distinctive exterior styling,
spacious cargo bay.

Cons
Somewhat gruff V-6 powertrain,
muddled driving dynamics,
busy interior design.

The 2018 Cadillac XT5 is a solid luxury crossover, but so are its rivals. Shop carefully.

Pros
Luxurious ride
Strong V-6 engine
Quality feel inside and out
Good value at low end

Cons
Gets expensive fast
Forgettable personality
Front-wheel-drive dynamics occasionally show through
Some frustrating controls

There’s a lot to like about the sharp-handling, attractive 2018 Kia Sportage, even if its fuel economy doesn’t impress.

Pros
Distinctive styling
Great ride and handling
Optional turbo power
Quality feel inside
Stellar infotainment

Cons
Lousy fuel economy
Styling not for everyone
So-so visibility
Limited configurability

The 2018 Kia Sportage ranked #4 in Compact SUVs. Currently the Kia Sportage has a score of 8.6 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 22 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Premium interior
Two rows of spacious seats
Agile handling and smooth ride
Excellent warranty and predicted reliability rating

Cons
Unimpressive engines
Below-average fuel economy
Smaller cargo hold than rivals

By: 
usnews.com

The Sportage stands pat with its unmistakable front-end styling and steadfast powertrain duo for 2018. Instead of changing those, Kia has extended some of its active safety features to lower trims, upgraded several standard features, and reshuffled the contents of option packages.

Pros
Audi-like interior,
long list of features,
speedy turbo engine.

Cons
Poor fuel economy,
limited cargo space,
love-it-or-hate-it styling.
