Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

Coming soon to a Pepperdine parking lot near you: the 2018 Jaguar E-Pace.

Pros
Gorgeous exterior
True torque vectoring
Planted, confident drive
Efficient interior space
Some bits borrowed from F-Type

Cons
the materials don’t scream luxury
Priced close to the F-Pace
Lagging automatic
Gruff-sounding engine

By: 
thecarconnection.com

The Jaguar E-Pace brings the British brand’s trademark style to the ever-expanding segment of small luxury crossovers. A turbo 2.0-liter inline-four makes 246 hp and has all-wheel drive and a nine-speed automatic transmission.

Pros
Excellent road manners,
comfortable for the driver plus one.

Cons
Snug back seat; no,
the I-Pace is the electric one.

By: 
caranddriver.com

We recommend the P250 E-Pace SE for its balance between cost and features. This model comes with the base engine, which puts out a respectable 246 horsepower, has standard all-wheel drive, and is packed full of features such as a power tailgate, 14-way power leather seats with memory function, an 11-speaker premium audio system, and a suite of advanced driving and parking aids.

PROS
Ample power from turbocharged four-cylinder engines
Relatively spacious accommodations
Appealing mix of standard and optional luxury features
Striking design from the inside out

CONS
Highest cost of entry in the luxury compact segment
It's the heavyweight of the class at more than 4,000 pounds
Ride quality can be harsh in some configurations with bigger wheels

The 2017 Acura RDX ranks 3 out of 14 Luxury Compact SUVs. The 2017 Acura RDX combines good value for the money with a comfortable and fully featured cabin, V6 power, and a smooth ride. This SUV has a long list of standard features and options, which are tied to packages and not trim levels. This means you don’t have to buy the high-end model to get the option you’re coveting most.

Pros
Peppy and capable V6 engine
Comfortable and quiet cabin
Smooth handling

Cons
Less sporty than competitors
Confusing infotainment system

By: 
usnews.com

The 2017 Acura RDX is one of the smoothest, most responsive-driving compact crossover SUVs—even though it prioritizes practicality.
Acura may be the underdog today in luxury sedans, yet it's giving shoppers exactly what they want with the 2017 Acura RDX and the larger MDX.
That includes strong powertrains, quiet cabins, and impressive safety—as well as just the right amount of versatility and practicality to make it one of the best-balanced picks in the segment, for those who are balancing the usual mix of sometimes-conflicting priorities.

Pros
Smooth ride
Strong V-6 performance
Agile handling
Quiet interior

Cons
Back seat is a little cramped
Rear seats don't fold flat
Annoying audio and forward-collision beeps
Tinny speakers

By:

If a small, luxury SUV is on your shopping list, you should consider the 2017 Acura RDX. This stylish Acura is one of our favorites thanks to its fuel-efficient, yet powerful V6, comfortable interior and long list of standard features. Read on to find out why the RDX could be a good fit for you.

Pros
Strong acceleration and fuel economy from standard V6 engine
Elevated rear seat provides generous legroom and a commanding view
More features than competitors at a similar or much lower price
Generous cargo capacity for the segment.

Cons
Technology interface can be distracting to use, especially the optional dual-screen system
High-tech safety features and adaptive cruise control don't work as well as some rival systems
Cabin lacks overtly luxurious look and feel.
