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: 
caranddriver.com

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

The 2018 Land Rover Discovery ranked #11 in Luxury Midsize SUVs. Currently the Land Rover Discovery has a score of 8.4 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 10 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Exceptional off-road capabilities
Potent powertrains
Turbodiesel models get excellent fuel economy
High-end, feature-filled, roomy cabin

Cons
Subpar gas mileage with base engine

By: 
usnews.com

The 2018 Land Rover Discovery is a spacious three-row crossover with more capability than anything that doesn’t ride on tank tracks.

Pros
Incredible capability
Strong engines
Impressive 8-speed automatics
Spacious interior

Cons
Contemporary shape on a classic name
Tangled options that add up
Lagging infotainment system
No Apple CarPlay/Android Auto support

By: 
thecarconnection.com

For 2018, the Land Rover Discovery comes standard with frontal collision mitigation with automatic emergency braking. Additionally, the Td6 diesel engine is now available on all three trim levels.The Land Rover Discovery has a relatively simple lineup of three trim levels, and we recommend the midlevel HSE.

PROS
Smooth driving manners on the road
Above-average capabilities off-road
Interior is luxurious with excellent materials
Clever features in terms of utility and technology

CONS
Diesel engine option has little advantage over standard gas engine
Touchscreen interface can be slow and difficult to operate
