Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2018 Ford Edge has an eager feel and crisp design; safety scores and Sport ride quality give pause.The Edge satisfies more than a few needs. It’s sleeker than the truck-infused Expedition, even the Explorer. It’s more spacious than the Escape. It’s also devoid of any off-road pretense, any faux-SUV ruggedness.

Pros
Quick steering
Cabin’s muted details
Wide range of engines
Composed ride on small-tire models
Edge Sport lives up to name

Cons
Seats are a big letdown
Real-world fuel economy
Stiff Sport ride

The Ford Endura is Ford Australia’s first large soft-road SUV since it stopped producing the Territory. It is powered by a 2.0-litre turbo-diesel that’s both powerful and relatively economical. It is good to steer, with polished cornering manners for a large SUV. There are front-drive and all-wheel-drive versions, and auto-braking is standard.

Pros
Punchy engine;
roadholding,
cabin space,
standard features.

Cons
Dated dashboard,
no petrol option.

Many Australians sorely miss the locally built Ford Territory. We’ve had our first local drive of the imported Endura to discover whether that large-SUV product gap has been adequately filled…

Pros
Spacious rear seat and big boot Good steering
Ride comfort and secure handling on country roads
Smooth and quiet turbo diesel
Lots of technology/features from entry model upwards

Cons
No third-row seating despite vehicle’s size
Performance only adequate
Urban ride quality still an unknown
Cabin presentation a bit underwhelming
$4000 charge for AWD

If you’re looking for a capable, convenient, and comfortable two- or three-row-crossover conveyance, the Kia Sorento is a solid choice. Once you’ve settled on the Sorento, however, the choices don’t end there. Seating for either five or seven, three engines, and both front- and all-wheel-drive variants mean there’s a Sorento for every taste.

Pros
Competent road manners,

The 2018 Kia Sorento ticks all the crossover-SUV boxes, especially in turbo-4 form.

Pros

Cabin is solid, quiet
Turbo-4’s responsive tune
Well-controlled ride
