Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2018 Kia Niro Hybrid and Plug-In Hybrid breathe new life into the hybrid segment, with a practical wagon shape and excellent interior you’d never know was a hybrid.

Pros
Utility vehicle styling
Good noise suppression
Handsome, intuitive interior
40-mpg-plus fuel economy
Plug-in version priced well

Cons
AWD unavailable
Sluggish acceleration at speed
No crash-test data yet
Plug-in range now only average

The 2018 Kia Niro ranked #5 in Subcompact SUVs. Currently the Kia Niro has a score of 8.1 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 14 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Magnificent fuel economy
Spacious, comfortable seats
Generous cargo capacity
Upscale cabin

Cons
Less athletic than rivals
Not available with AWD
High base price

By:

The most significant change for the 2018 Niro is the addition of lane keeping assist, replacing the previous lane departure warning system. It's included in the Advanced Technology package available on LX and EX trims, and it's standard on the top Touring trim.

PROS
Impressive fuel economy from the base trim model
One of the more affordable hybrids in the segment
Batteries are hidden under the rear seat and don't affect cargo space

CONS
Feature-laden Touring trim sacrifices fuel efficiency
Less cargo space than most rivals
Feels lazy when driving in the default Eco mode
All-wheel drive isn't offered despite crossover styling

The 2018 Ford Edge has an eager feel and crisp design; safety scores and Sport ride quality give pause.The Edge satisfies more than a few needs. It’s sleeker than the truck-infused Expedition, even the Explorer. It’s more spacious than the Escape. It’s also devoid of any off-road pretense, any faux-SUV ruggedness.

Pros
Quick steering
Cabin’s muted details
Wide range of engines
Composed ride on small-tire models
Edge Sport lives up to name

Cons
Seats are a big letdown
Real-world fuel economy
Stiff Sport ride

The 2018 Ford Edge ranked #9 in Midsize SUVs. Currently the Ford Edge has a score of 8.3 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 28 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
User-friendly infotainment system
Spacious, comfortable, quiet cabin
Above-average fuel economy with standard engine
Smooth, carlike handling

Cons
Transmission can be slow to shif

By: 
usnews.com

If all you need is a basic crossover without having to worry about a bunch of pricey options, the SE is your best bet. But for most Edge shoppers, we think the SEL is the way to go. It offers more amenities and access to options

Pros
Ride quality is smoother than many of its competitors
Plenty of space for passengers and luggage
Fuel-efficient and performance-oriented engines

Cons
Transmission is occasionally slow to react
Base engine may be too sluggish for some drivers
