Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2018 Fiat 500X finishes in the bottom third of our subcompact SUV rankings. Despite its bold styling, this Fiat is less exciting and less practical than many crossover rivals.

Pros
User-friendly infotainment system
Upscale interior styling

Cons
Shorter warranty than many competitors
Very small cargo area
Jittery ride quality
Bland engines and clunky automatic transmission

By:

The 2018 Fiat 500X comes with more built-in personality than most other small SUVs, though it’s an urban warrior rather than an off-roader.

Pros
Neat, tidy lines and proportions
Ride, handling above average
More character than most small utilities

Cons
Automatic transmission can be touchy
Sunroof hurts rear head room
Far from an off-roader

The 2018 Ford Escape ranked #2 in Compact SUVs. Currently the Ford Escape has a score of 8.7 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 56 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Sporty handling
Premium interior with user-friendly tech
Good safety score and great predicted reliability rating
Above-average cargo space

Cons
Unimpressive fuel economy

By: 
usnews.com

The Escape is fundamentally unchanged for 2018, but there are some tweaks to the lineup and to its standard-equipment offerings.The SEL comes standard with leather-trimmed seating, a power liftgate, heated exterior mirrors, an 8.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system, and LED running lights.

Pros
Graceful turbocharged 2.0-liter engine,
smooth ride,
attractive and intuitive infotainment system.

Cons
Less rear-seat and cargo space than the class leaders,
turbo engines return mediocre fuel economy.

The 2018 Ford Escape has the road manners of another kind of car—but don't worry, it still works well as a crossover.

Pros
Tough-hatch lines
Ample cargo bin
Wonderfully taut handling
Tech options aplenty
Brisk 2.0-liter acceleration

Cons
Busy, space-robbing dash
Firm seats, if you’re not into that
Not much SUV, if you’re into that
Optimistic EPA ratings
