Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2019 Chevrolet Cruze gains some good content, but its advanced safety tech should be more accessible.

Pros
Versatile sedan, hatchback bodystyles
Good standard infotainment
Compelling turbodiesel option
Rides well

Cons
New look is hardly exciting
Automatic emergency braking only on range-topper
Price escalates with options
Could be sportier

By: 
thecarconnection.com

Pros
Smooth, refined gas engine
Unobtrusive engine stop-start system
Cabin comfort
Materials quality

Cons
Feels sluggish at 55 to 60 mph (gas engine)
Minimal steering feedback
Only one standard USB port
Less effective climate control when engine is in auto-stop mode

Chevrolet hopes a fresh new look will entice buyers to take a look at the 2019 Cruze. It has features that buyers in the compact class want, such as smartphone mirroring through a fast-acting 7-inch touchscreen, Bluetooth, solid crash test scores and enjoyable handling.

Pros
Feels sporty and planted around turns
Touchscreen interface is easy to use
Available diesel-powered engine for high fuel economy

Cons
Front seats aren't particularly comfortable
Diesel engine's high upfront cost
Gas engine's disappointing acceleration and real-world fuel economy

The 2018 Hyundai Sonata receives a much-needed injection of style.

Pros
More stylish than before
Relaxing, comfortable ride quality
Flexible engines
Android or Apple, your interface is OK
Roomy interior

Cons
Light on personality
Sport isn’t all that sporty
Limited customization options
Interior a little downmarket

one might consider Hyundai’s refreshed 2018 Sonata the brand’s rerelease of its seventh-generation mid-size sedan that was launched for the 2015 model year. That Sonata was a nice enough family four-door that failed to catch on with the buying public in the same way that its slinkier predecessor did; Hyundai is hoping this updated version will climb higher up the sales charts.

Pros
Quiet cabin,
easy-to-use infotainment system,
standard blind-spot monitor.

Cons
Dynamically dull,
1.6T engine limited to Eco trim,
active-safety features not available on all models.

By:

The 2018 Hyundai Sonata had been restyled inside and out and receives updates to its suspension and steering aimed at improving ride quality, response and feel.

PROS
Solid list of standard features and tons of available tech
Spacious interior accommodations and generous trunk space
Excellent user interface receives a more upscale redesign
10-year powertrain warranty offers peace of mind

CONS
No options available on Edmunds' recommended Eco model
Slightly less rear legroom than the segment leaders
Top turbocharged engine trails performance of its competitors
Lackluster power from base engine
