Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2018 Infiniti QX60 is an elegant, and simple, solution for families looking for a luxury crossover.

Pros
Conservative, and classy exterior
Good standard equipment
Spacious second row
Rich and uncluttered interior

Cons
Frustrating optional packages
Advanced safety is an expensive proposition
Aging powertrain
Rear end could use a lift

By: 
thecarconnection.com

For 2018, the QX60 adds Rear Door Alert, a standard feature that can remind drivers of passengers, pets, or objects possibly left behind after switching off the ignition. Sensors can detect if a rear door was opened prior to driving and can issue an alert if a rear door isn't opened at the end of the drive

PROS
Quiet, comfortable cabin makes for a soothing ride
Offers easy access to third-row seats
Smooth transmission operation adds to luxurious feel
Plush ride quality makes long trips enjoyable

CONS
Third-row legroom is tight for adults
Off-road capability isn't part of its formula
Desirable features are all extra and bundled into packages
Not as sporty as some other large luxury SUVs

The new Kuga is safer and roomier than before. Less fun, but a better family car

Pros
Safer,
more affordable,
more spacious and more convenient than before

Cons
Not as fun as it used to be. It's grown up and got some proper trousers...

By: 
topgear.com

The Ford Kuga has recently been facelifted to keep it competitive, but its dashboard still lags behind some rivals.With attractive styling, decent practicality and an impressive safety record, the Kuga is a convincing family SUV. It can't quite match the extremely high all-round standards of some of its latest rivals – the SEAT Ateca in particular – but for the right deal it's worth considering.

PROS
Good value and well equipped
Economical diesel engines
Spacious interior

CONS
Too many buttons inside
Outshone by several rivals
Inferior automatic gearboxes
