Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2018 GMC Terrain is an upscale twin to the Chevy Equinox and looks the part.Much like the last generation, the new Terrain takes a more aggressive approach to the shared GM architecture. The boxy body is bookended by a larger grille and a more sculpted rear end. The Terrain’s shape borrows much from the bigger Acadia, and is part of GMC’s newer design theme for its crossovers.

Pros
Tough-and-tumble look
Top-trim Denali version
Fuel-efficient diesel version
Advanced 9-speed automatic

Cons
So long sliding second row
What will fuel efficiency be?
Can get expensive

Quiet and comfortable, the Terrain is exactly what we’d expect from the Professional Grade brand; enjoyable driving dynamics are an added surprise. Three turbocharged inline-fours are offered; the 170-hp 1.5-liter and 252-hp 2.0-liter are paired with a nine-speed automatic, while the 137-hp diesel 1.6-liter gets a six-speed unit.

Pros
Stupefying fuel economy,
well-packaged cabin.

Cons
Interior materials are “meh” incarnate,
relaxed acceleration,
high price.

A solid workhorse, with seven seats and a very comfortable ride.

Pros
Excellent ride comfort
Minimal NVH
Half-decent looker
Solid build quality
Plenty of internal storage
Great family car for the money
Standard safety features

Cons
Exceptionally poor infotainment system
Outdated switchgear and cabin
Poor bluetooth telephony
Tough competition

The seven-seater Nissan X-Trail is currently the biggest SUV the firm builds. It’s a good-looking family car that rivals the Hyundai Santa Fe, Kia Sorento and the Skoda Kodiaq.
The X-Trail’s interior has a similar design to the one found in the Nissan Qashqai, so it’s simple to use if a little uninspiring to look at, and the car’s standard five-inch touchscreen display means there isn’t a sea buttons to contend with. While there is plenty or room for five adults inside, the two seats that fold out from the boot are best reserved for children. Even with them in place, though, the X-Trail has enough boot space for a few suitcases.

Pros
Comfortable
Well-equipped
Decent off-road

Cons
Third row seats are a bit cramped
Not exactly head-turning looks
CVT automatic is not as good as rivals with DSG

By:

The X-TRAIL TL is clearly not a 4WD as our beach run proved – and the diesel could be both more responsive at low rpm and more economical.
However, this is a comfortable, quiet, smooth and sure-footed medium SUV with plenty of room for holiday gear in the back.

Pros
Supple ride
Comfortable, versatile interior
LED headlights

Cons
Lack of low-rpm grunt
Fuel consumption higher than claimed
Foot-operated parking brake
