Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2018 Chevrolet Traverse gets a much needed makeover that helps make the big crossover look more premium this time around.

Pros
Bolder style
More upscale exterior
New High Country trim
Efficient 9-speed automatic

Cons
Cargo room is comparable to last gen
How will turbo-4 power work?
Where does Tahoe fit?
Interior a little bland

We think the LT Cloth with the Convenience and Driver Confidence package (which is standard on the all-wheel-drive version) will give you everything you need. Between the LT's basic upgrades and the option package's suite of useful safety features, the LT Cloth strikes a good balance between cost and livability.

Pros
Generous room for passengers in all three rows
Feature-rich standard infotainment system

Cons
Some safety features only available on top trims

The 2018 Chevrolet Traverse ranked #9 in Midsize SUVs. Currently the Chevrolet Traverse has a score of 8.3 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 12 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Roomy, versatile seats
Lots of standard tech
Spacious cargo area
Carlike handling and ride quality

Cons
Unexciting driving dynamics

The 2017 BMW X4 is an alternative approach to tall-riding SUVs, if you can even call it that.The 2017 BMW X4 is a nice thing. Describing it any further requires a little understanding and a break with conventional rules.It's not a coupe, and it's not much of an SUV. It's not a tall wagon, and the X4 certainly isn't much of a sedan.
Instead, it doubles down on the recipe that BMW tested with the bigger X6 and takes an existing SUV and tapers its roofline for a more interesting look and less interior space. In this case, the donor is the more upright X3, and the X4 is fashioned to be a direct rival to the Range Rover Evoque, Porsche Macan, and even the Lincoln MKC.

Pros
A seductive roofline
M40i is a true performance vehicle
Sticky handling
Base engine is plenty quick

Cons
Cargo and rear passenger space is compromised
Thick rear haunches
Not quite a Macan Turbo competitor

The 2017 BMW X4 ranks 13 out of 14 Luxury Compact SUVs. The 2017 BMW X4's strong engine options and sporty driving dynamics make it a great performer among luxury compact SUVs, but competitors offer more interior and cargo space, as well as higher predicted reliability scores.

Pros
Potent engines
User-friendly infotainment system
Accurate steering

Cons
Cramped back seats
Class-trailing cargo capacity

You might already know that sitting up high and having a commanding view of the road can be a great thing. So if you're looking for a luxury SUV that gives you that sense of security along with a sleek design and strong performance, the uniquely styled 2016 BMW X4 is an interesting alternative.
Mid way through last year the xDrive35i model was replaced by the more performance-oriented M40i model. For all 2017 models, wireless phone charging and a Wi-Fi hotspot are added to the options list, while the upgraded iDrive interface included with navigation has been updated. Finally, the steering wheel included in the optional M Sport package has a new design

Pros
Strong performance and good fuel economy from its two available engines
High-quality cabin looks and feels expensive
Comfortable ride quality despite its sporty nature
Responsive handling bettered only by pricier sport-tuned rivals
High-performance M40i trim level is a rarity for the segment.

Cons
Low rear seat reduces comfort relative to the X3 and most competitors
Small cargo area for a vehicle in this class
Rearward visibility is compromised by sloping roofline
Costs more than a similarly equipped X3 which offers more room inside
Some controls can be difficult to learn
Adaptive cruise control doesn't perform as well as those of rivals.
