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

By:

The name sounds odd, but the Touareg offers a comfortable ride and spirited performance—something we all can understand. Its 3.6-liter V-6 makes 280 hp and is mated to an eight-speed automatic and all-wheel drive. The Touareg is large, comfortable, and solid—plus it’s equally at home both on and off the pavement. A standard touchscreen infotainment display is functional but dated; the optional adaptive cruise control and automated emergency braking, however, are well engineered and effective.

PROS
Comfortable, tech-laden interior
Active safety functions
3.5 tonne towing, real off-road ability
Ride on standard air suspension

CONS
No seven-seat option
Lacks a full-size spare tyre
Expensive for a Volkswagen
