Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2018 Jeep Renegade mounts a spirited defense of its brand bona fides, but delivers a less convincing impression of a great economy car.

Pros
Looks like a real Jeep
User-friendly interior
Real off-road capability
Clever design Easter eggs
Tuck-away glass-panel roof

Cons
Not a five-seater
Too-snug rear seat
Gas mileage is meh
Upgraded 4-cylinder is noisy

The 2018 Jeep Renegade ranked #8 in Subcompact SUVs. Currently the Jeep Renegade has a score of 7.8 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 35 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Exceptional off-road capabilities
Upmarket interior
Smooth and nimble handling

Cons
Rivals have more standard features
Subpar gas mileage

The Jeep Renegade receives a handful of infotainment updates for 2018. A rearview camera, a 5-inch touchscreen and a six-speaker audio system are all now standard. New, upgraded 7- and 8.4-inch touchscreens now include Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility. All touchscreens are loaded with the newest version of Jeep's Uconnect infotainment system.

PROS
Trailhawk model's best-in-class off-road capability
Agile handling when going around turns
Plenty of easy-to-use technology features
Lots of character with a classic Jeep look

CONS
Rear-seat legroom is tight for adults
Boxy shape makes for lots of wind noise on the highway
Fuel economy is middling for the segment
Nine-speed transmission is clunky and easily confused

The 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class blends hatchback with crossover, with better than mixed results.

Pros
Quick on its feet
Turbo engines are a blast
Hatchback practicality
Very good fuel economy
GLA45 AMG earns its initials

Cons
Tight rear seats
A $60,000 GLA45 AMG? That escalated quickly
Interior can seem plasticky

The 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class ranked #4 in Luxury Subcompact SUVs. Currently the Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class has a score of 7.8 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 26 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Sporty handling
Impressive infotainment system and features
Thrilling AMG model

Cons
Inefficient base transmission
Cramped back seat

By: 
usnews.com

2018 GLA-class amount to little more than a light freshening. Newly optional LED headlamps flank a restyled grille with crossbars that feature rectangular punctures like those on the larger GLS-class SUV. A revised front bumper with more-prominent fog lamps, revised LED taillights, and new wheel designs round out the exterior tweaks. Inside, an 8.0-inch infotainment screen replaces last year’s 7.0-incher; additional chrome brightwork adorns the door panels and the center console; and new, more legible black-faced gauges replace the 2017’s gray-faced units.

Pros
Quick reflexes and acceleration,
all-weather capability,
stylish inside and out.

Cons
Cramped cabin,
turbo lag around town,
ride can be overly firm at times.
