Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2020 GMC Terrain seats five people and is available in four trim levels: the base SL, SLE, SLT, and Denali. Optional diesel engine is no longer available.Updated suspension for Denali models intended to improve ride quality.Changes to standard and optional safety equipment.At the top of the Terrain range is the Denali, which receives unique styling cues and interior trim as well as most of the optional features from the above trim levels. A new optional Denali Premium package tops it all off with features such as ventilated front seats, adaptive cruise control and a surround-view parking camera system.

Pros
Comfortable and upscale interior
Optional 2.0-liter engine is efficient and powerful
Touchscreen interfaces are intuitive and easy to use

Cons
Price with options runs higher than average for the class
Disappointing base engine
Less cargo space behind the back seat than most competitors

The 2020 GMC Terrain is a stylish crossover SUV that we wish had more standard safety gear.

Pros
Arresting style
Rides well
Denali feels almost luxurious
Good infotainment system

Cons
Annoying all-wheel-drive system
Thirsty engines
Active safety should be standard
Price escalates fast

The 2020 GMC Terrain features an impressive set of standard safety features and a handsome cabin, but neither area is best in class. Add in moderate performance and a small cargo area, and the Terrain's spot in the bottom half of our compact SUV rankings is understandable.

Pros
Lots of standard advanced safety features
Considerable rear-seat legroom
Upscale, comfortable cabin
Good city mpg rating with base engine

Cons
Small cargo area behind back seat
Sleepy base engine
Above-average price for the class

Not only is the ID.4 a brand new nameplate for the Volkswagen brand, it's also the first in a series of all-electric model which will combine to create the ID subbrand.The ID.4 is a practical electric alternative to gas-powered SUVs but lacks the excitement you might expect from an EV.

PROS
Roomy cabin,
smooth ride,
decent driving range.

CONS
Lacks driving verve,
fussy infotainment interface,
anonymous styling.

The 2021 Volkswagen ID.4 is all-new all-electric SUV,about as much interior space as VW's Tiguan, an estimated range for rear-wheel-drive models of 250 miles and Kicks off the first generation of the ID.4 for 2021.

Pros
Lots of helpful safety and technology features come standard
Spacious interior with lots of small-item storage
Impressive real-world range and electrical efficiency

Cons
Some controls can be difficult to operate
Low-quality cabin plastics cheapen the experience

By: 
edmunds.com

The 2021 Volkswagen ID.4 gives families the right formula for saying farewell to tailpipe emissions, but the cabin tech could use some smoothing over.

PROS
Good passenger and cargo space
Quiet, smooth ride
Lots of features for the money
Free road-trip charging for three years

CONS
Laggy infotainment
Clumsy capacitive controls
Grabby brakes
