Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2018 Jeep Compass ranked #13 in Compact SUVs. Currently the Jeep Compass has a score of 7.6 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 27 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
User-friendly infotainment system
Good value for an off-road SUV
Cargo storage is convenient and versatile

Cons
Low predicted reliability rating
Below-average cargo room
Lethargic engine

By:

Coming off last year's redesign, the 2018 Jeep Compass is unchanged.The newest Compass is more comfortable to drive and can be fitted with Jeep's latest in-car technology features such as the easy-to-operate Uconnect infotainment system.

PROS
Roomy interior for such a small vehicle
Trailhawk version is highly capable off-road

CONS
Hard to find a truly comfortable seat position
Four-cylinder engine's weak power delivery

By:

The 2018 Jeep Compass makes some compromises in size and power, but its Trailhawk model hits the crossover-SUV sweet spot.

Pros
Tough Trailhawk model
Clever Cherokee-like shape
Lots of trim choice
Up-to-date infotainment
Comfortable ride quality and good handling

Cons
4-cylinder is overwhelmed here
Cabin feels narrow
Seats need better padding
Mediocre visibility
No adaptive cruise control

The latest BMW X3 is well worth considering if you’re looking for a family SUV with a spacious and plush interior that’s relaxing to drive.

Pros
Spacious cabin
Practical boot
Quiet and comfortable to drive

Cons
Desirable options cost extra
Looks like the old car
Cabin doesn’t look very exciting

By: 
carwow.co.uk

The X3 also becomes a more full-fledged member of the BMW family with its upgraded interior. And at a time when some of the brand’s passenger-car offerings have strayed from BMW’s historically strong dynamics, the new X3 makes an encouraging showing there as well.

Pros
Chassis tuning like BMWs of old,
improved interior,
plenty of passenger and cargo space.

Cons
Imprecise variable-ratio steering,
goofy electronic shifter,
the entry-level four pales next to the six-cylinder.
