Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2018 GMC Acadia ranked #15 in Midsize SUVs. Currently the GMC Acadia has a score of 8.0 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 23 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Upscale interior
Smooth ride
User-friendly infotainment system

Cons
Cramped third row
Less cargo space than some rivals

By: 
usnews.com

A V-6 engine is optional and provides decent hustle, while the standard four-cylinder engine is the choice for buyers mindful of fuel economy.Handsome styling, a well-connected infotainment system, and room for up to seven passengers make the Acadia an easy family favorite.

Pros
Seating for seven,
handsome styling,
a high-tech cabin.

Cons
Uneven interior build quality,
disappointing fuel economy,
a tight third row and cargo hold.

By:

The 3.6-liter V6 is now available on SLE-1 AWD models. Last year's All Terrain package deleted the third-row seat, but it can now be ordered with the third row intact.

PROS
Refined ride quality makes it comfortable in any kind of driving situation
Quick acceleration from the optional V6 engine
Simple cabin layout means everything is usable at a glance
Modern onboard technology keeps you connected

CONS
Not many places to store small items
Some rival crossovers have more cargo and third-row space
Cabin isn't particularly luxurious, even in the priciest trim levels

By:

The 2018 Kia Soul puts style ahead of safety features and turbo power.

Pros
Looks sharp
Good Uvo infotainment
Turbo-4 power
Versatile hatchback body
Still a manual on the order sheet

Cons
Engines can be noisy
6-speed automatic hunts through gears
Mediocre gas mileage
Top safety tech unavailable with turbo
