Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The Ford EcoSport looks to be a worthwhile offering in the subcompact segment.Although the Ford EcoSport is just now arriving in the United States, the automaker was actually one of the first to get in on the pint-size crossover game.

Pros
Cheeky style
Clean-looking interior
Choice of powertrains
Tailgate door could be useful

Cons
No AWD with 3-cylinder
Has been on sale globally for a long time
Tailgate may also be inconvenien

The EcoSport truly embraces the tiny ethos. It’s 16.8 inches shorter in length than an Escape and rides on a 6.7-inch-shorter wheelbase. Even within its competitive set—which includes the Jeep Renegade, the Honda HR-V, and the Chevrolet Trax, among others—the EcoSport is the runt of the litter. The Ford’s wheelbase is the shortest of the group, and most of its competitors are at least a half-foot longer overall.

Pros
User-friendly tech,
park it anywhere,
all-wheel drive is available.

Cons
Tight back seat,
modest power,
drinks gas like a bigger SUV.

Pros
Cute-ute styling fits with Ford showroom
Very nice interior materials
Lots of headroom
Large cargo area with seats folded
Sync3, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto available

Cons
Side-hinged rear swing gate not good for urban parking
Unknown horsepower figures
Lesser trim models won’t have 8-inch screen
Cargo room is tight with seats up
Unknown fuel economy ratings

Named after a famous winding pass in the Italian Alps, the Stelvio is perfect for carving up canyons. A turbo 2.0-liter four makes 280 hp and pairs with an eight-speed automatic and all-wheel drive. For more power, the Quadrifoglio flaunts a 505-hp 2.9-liter turbo V-6; an adaptive suspension is standard. Alfa claims a zero-to-60 time of 3.9 seconds. Inside, the Stelvio offers an optional 900-watt Harman/Kardon audio system, but we’re pretty sure that sweet engine is all you’ll want to hear.
Assembled at Alfa’s Cassino plant in Frosinone, Italy, the Stelvio is built on the same platform as the Giulia and will be offered in three trim levels: Stelvio, Stelvio Ti, and the high-performance Stelvio Quadrifoglio, which has enough distinct features and tuning to be considered a separate model. While the Stelvio and Stelvio Ti both rely on a 280-hp turbocharged 2.0-liter inline-four for motivation, the high-performance Quadrifoglio utilizes the 505-hp 2.9-liter turbocharged V-6 from the Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio. Aluminum is used extensively in the construction of every Stelvio, including the front and rear subframes, the suspension components (control arms in front, multilink in the rear), the doors, and the fenders; the rear crossmember is partly made of composite plastics to pare more weight.

While the 2018 Alfa Romeo Stelvio offers an enjoyable experience at all trim levels, the Ti outfitted with the Sport package represents the best of what this SUV has to offer. The Ti provides a more premium experience, adding more attractive interior materials and heating for the front seats and steering wheel. The Sport package completes the experience with supportive seats, great-looking 20-inch wheels, satisfying shift paddles, and your choice of red, black or yellow brake calipers.

PROS
Among the more fun-to-drive compact luxury crossovers available
Powerful and exciting engine
Distinctive styling and wheels help it stand out in the crown

CONS
Odd brake pedal feel makes it hard to modulate easily
Low tow capacity versus segment
Somewhat snug back seat
