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

The 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLE-Class ranked #12 in Luxury Midsize SUVs. Currently the Mercedes-Benz GLE-Class has a score of 8.3 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 46 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Lots of powerful engine choices
Posh interior
Above-average cargo space (in non-coupe models)
Lengthy features list

Cons
Less athletic than many competitors
Coupe has limited cargo space and visibility
Finicky engine stop-start system

Performance, plug-in, or pedestrian: there’s a 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLE for almost every luxury-SUV buyer.

Pros
Wide palette of body styles, powertrains, trims
GLE Coupe, for the well-to-do contrarian
Powertrain choice abounds
Composed, quiet ride

Cons
AMG = $$$
Not so fuel-efficient
Addled infotainment interface
Odd feature availability
Coupe body costs money, space

By:

The AMG GLE 43 is slightly more powerful, increasing engine output from 362 horsepower to 385 hp. Otherwise, the Mercedes-Benz GLE-Class is unchanged for 2018.

PROS
Multiple available powertrains make each model distinct
Interior is quiet, upscale and roomy
Abundant list of standard safety, tech and luxury features
AMG variants are seriously quick

CONS
Not many places to store small personal items
Punishing ride on AMG models, with little benefit to handling
Ride quality with the standard suspension isn't as comfy as we expect
Base V6's acceleration is merely adequate
