Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2017 Jeep Wrangler is a unique off-roader bolstered by the freedom of open air driving. Its aging design is a throwback to the past, but it offers just enough contemporary features and modern amenities.
The Jeep Wrangler is a throwback to the brand's earliest days as a military supplier. Whether by chance or by design, the purpose-built off-roader has endured decades and has become one of Jeep's best-selling vehicles. Offered in Sport, Sport S, Sahara, and extreme off-road Rubicon models, the Wrangler combines an throwback design with a smattering of modern amenities.

Pros
It's the off-road champ
Unique style, unique everything
Strong, smooth V-6
Carlike touches in cabin

Cons
Rough ride
Poor handling on pavement
Steep prices for top editions
Very poor safety ratings
Fussy soft tops

The 2017 Jeep Wrangler ranks 14 out of 18 Compact SUVs. The 2017 Jeep Wrangler finishes near the bottom of our compact SUV rankings. The Wrangler is one of the most capable off-road SUVs out there, but class rivals are superior in pretty much every other area (fuel efficiency, interior comfort, available technology, and cargo space, to name a few).

Pros
Outstanding off-road capability
Standard part-time four-wheel drive
Powerful V6 engine

Cons
Uncomfortable ride and subpar handling on pavement
Cramped rear seats and few standard features
Poor fuel economy
More expensive than many rivals

For the 2017 Wrangler, Jeep has added new optional LED headlights and foglights, as well as a Cold Weather package that includes remote start, heated seats and all-weather floor mats.
Although it's behind the times as far as tech goes, the 2017 Jeep Wrangler is still one of the best go-anywhere, do-anything vehicles that money can buy. From the stripped-out Sport model all the way up to the hardcore Rubicon, there's a Jeep for every off-road scenario.

Pros
All but unstoppable on the trail
Unique rugged character
There's a Wrangler for a variety of tastes
Extensive factory and aftermarket parts support
Fun to drive in its own special way.

Cons
Crash test scores don't match more conventional vehicles
Long braking distances
On-road handling and overall comfort are lacking
Soft top is difficult to operate and offers little security
The latest safety and technology features are absent
Subpar fuel economy compared to most modern crossovers.

With more personality than most small crossovers, the Fiat 500X is definitely worth a look.Fiat has a real chance to win over American buyers with the 500X, which is certainly its most mainstream offering here—perhaps ever.
With the 500X, Fiat finally has a mainstream vehicle with widespread appeal. It's a compact crossover SUV that shares running gear with the Jeep Renegade. Rivals include the Honda HR-V, Buick Encore and Chevy Trax, and the Mazda CX-3.

Pros
Tidy exterior styling
Just right proportions
Above average ride and handling
More characterful than most rivals

Cons
Automatic gearbox can be touchy
Sunroof steals head room, especially in back
Small infotainment screens
Not an off roader

By:

The number of available trims has decreased from five to three, and options packages have been consolidated and renamed. Otherwise, the 2017 Fiat 500X is unchanged.

Pros
Distinctive and well-made cabin with easy-to-use tech controls
Reasonably priced
Offers safety features not usually available in this class.

Cons
So-so fuel economy
Confused and clunky automatic transmission
Meager cargo room.

The 2017 FIAT 500X ranks 10 out of 12 Subcompact SUVs. The 2017 Fiat 500X may have supermodel looks compared to its subcompact SUV rivals, but this chic SUV ranks toward the back of the pack for its unrefined engines, few standard features, and low predicted reliability rating.

Pros
Upmarket interior
Very maneuverable
Easy-to-use infotainment system

Cons
Lackluster engines
Few standard features
