Whatever you're looking for in an SUV, the 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee likely offers it. Depending on how you equip it, it can be well-rounded and luxurious, an off-road specialist or a hot-rod SUV. It's one of our favorites in the midsize SUV class.

Pros
Plush interior with plentiful luxury and technology
Enough off-road ability to conquer practically any trail
Available V8 engines offer substantial power
Impressive tow ratings for the class

Cons
Limited cargo capacity compared to top rivals
Firm ride quality may disappoint, even with air suspension

The Audi SQ5 is redesigned for 2018. Highlights include a new body structure, updated styling, a more powerful V6 engine, and new tech and driver-assistance features.The 2018 Audi SQ5 comes in either Premium Plus or Prestige trims. This means every SQ5 comes very well-equipped. But there are still plenty of upgrades to be had in terms of luxury, technology and performance.

PROS
All-new chassis should improve ride and handling
Increased torque for even livelier performance
Major upgrades to driving and infotainment technology
Luxurious but restrained interior design

CONS
Reduced cargo space behind rear seats

By: 
edmunds.com

The SQ5 strikes a careful balance between sporty and comfortable, making a strong showing in a tough class.The SQ5 enters a new generation this year, with top-to-bottom changes that include an all-new 354-hp turbocharged V-6 engine in place of last year’s supercharged V-6, an all-new chassis, standard adaptive dampers, and available air springs. Updated interior packaging means there’s a little more space for both passengers and cargo than in previous SQ5s, and exterior design tweaks including a revised front grille and a character line running the length of the car serve as differentiators between new and not-so-new models.

Pros
Comfortable ride,
surprisingly fuel efficient,
abundance of standard interior features.

Cons
Disappointing real-world cargo capacity,
ho-hum exterior design,
top competitors have better dynamics.
