Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2018 Jeep Wrangler skips over the on-road part of the driving test, and heads straight for the hills.

Pros
The undisputed off-road champion
Singular style
Smooth and strong V-6
A few concessions to modernity inside

Cons
Rough-and-tumble ride
Poor on-road handling
Expensive high-end editions
Remarkably poor safety scores
Soft tops are fussy to use

By:

The Jeep Wrangler is completely redesigned for 2018. Note that this review covers the new Wrangler. The previous-generation model, the Wrangler JK, is covered separately.

PROS
Unrelentingly capable off-road
Maintains the rugged Jeep character
Increased capability and comfort compared to old models
Extensive customization options from the factory and aftermarket

CONS
Mild towing capability for an otherwise highly capable rig
Less cargo space than some conventional crossovers
Standard V6 engine is a little underwhelming

By: 
edmunds.com

Pros
There are few vehicles more capable off-road than the Wrangler JK. Equipped with removable doors, a removable roof, and a fold-down windshield, the four-wheel-drive Wrangler JK is one of the most fun and proficient ways to explore off the beaten path or to feel the wind in your hair. It’s also hard not to fall for the Wrangler JK’s charming and simple design, which can trace its roots back to the Willys MB Jeep of World War II fame.

Cons
The Wrangler JK’s off-road capability comes at the cost of its on-road manners. Live front and rear axles do the Wrangler JK’s ride quality no favors. The body also rolls precariously in turns, and the stability-control system regularly cuts in to prevent the droptop SUV from actually rolling over. Wind noise is exceptionally loud at highway speeds, and this Jeep drinks gas like it’s at an open bar. The available touchscreen infotainment system also is slow to respond to inputs and suffers from poor ergonomics.

The 2018 BMW X2 has agile handling to match its sleek looks, and while it gives up some interior space for the low roofline, it still retains some crossover utility.

Pros
Sprightly acceleration
Agile handling
Stylish design
Efficient for a crossover
Good backseat space

Cons
Interior space is compromised
A front-drive BMW?
Pricing creeps up quickly
Most safety features are optional and pricey

By: 
thecarconnection.com

Boldly styled on the outside, the X2 shares its underpinnings with the already excellent X1. A 228-hp turbocharged 2.0-liter inline-four mates to an eight-speed automatic transmission with front- or all-wheel drive. The fun-to-drive X2 went from 0–60 in 6.4 seconds in our testing. Connectivity options include a 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot and Apple CarPlay. Available safety tech includes lane-departure warning, automatic high-beams, forward-collision warning, and low-speed automated emergency braking.

Pros
Attractive inside and out,
nails the fun-to-drive quotient.

Cons
Stiff ride,
road and suspension noise,
high as-tested price.

By: 
caranddriver.com

One of the nicest-looking BMWs of late also happens to be one of the most affordable, but despite its gorgeous design, it's far from perfect.

Pros
Exterior design
Driving dynamics
Interior fit and finish
Spacious for its size
Very competent powertrain
Great ride comfort (Adaptive Suspension), infotainment system

Cons
Misses out on full autonomous emergency braking
Apple CarPlay optional and an ongoing cost
Interior carry-over from X1 showing its age
