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 GMC Terrain is an upscale twin to the Chevy Equinox and looks the part.Much like the last generation, the new Terrain takes a more aggressive approach to the shared GM architecture. The boxy body is bookended by a larger grille and a more sculpted rear end. The Terrain’s shape borrows much from the bigger Acadia, and is part of GMC’s newer design theme for its crossovers.

Pros
Tough-and-tumble look
Top-trim Denali version
Fuel-efficient diesel version
Advanced 9-speed automatic

Cons
So long sliding second row
What will fuel efficiency be?
Can get expensive

By: 
thecarconnection.com

Quiet and comfortable, the Terrain is exactly what we’d expect from the Professional Grade brand; enjoyable driving dynamics are an added surprise. Three turbocharged inline-fours are offered; the 170-hp 1.5-liter and 252-hp 2.0-liter are paired with a nine-speed automatic, while the 137-hp diesel 1.6-liter gets a six-speed unit.

Pros
Stupefying fuel economy,
well-packaged cabin.

Cons
Interior materials are “meh” incarnate,
relaxed acceleration,
high price.
