Cons
Finicky dual-screen infotainment system

For 2019, Infiniti has simplified the Q50's trim levels, offering just one version of the 2.0-liter turbo four-cylinder (available with either rear- or all-wheel drive).Streamlined model lineup.Forward collision warning and automatic emergency braking are now standard.

Pros

Many high-tech entertainment and safety features come standard
For a small luxury sedan, it offers a pretty roomy trunk

Cons
Infotainment system isn't as user-friendly as many others
Interior design looks dated and plain
Allows significant road noise into the cabin
Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are unavailable

The Forester was all new for 2019, so Subaru hasn't made many changes for 2020; however, there are a few new features that buyers might find interesting. The standard adaptive cruise control system gains a lane-centering feature, the tire-pressure monitor now displays the pressure in each tire, an LED lamp illuminates the license plate on all models, and a rear-seat reminder alerts the driver to check the back seat upon exiting the vehicle if the rear doors were opened prior to the start of the trip. Premium models now come standard with the contents of last year's All-Weather package—heated exterior mirrors, heated front seats, and a windshield wiper de-icer—and touring models get LED cargo-area dome lights.

Pros
Good at most everything that matters to crossover buyers, spacious cabin, relaxed ride and handling.

Cons
Lethargic acceleration, uninspired design, few luxuries come standard.

Cons
Archaic three-year warranty
