If you’re looking for a capable, convenient, and comfortable two- or three-row-crossover conveyance, the Kia Sorento is a solid choice. Once you’ve settled on the Sorento, however, the choices don’t end there. Seating for either five or seven, three engines, and both front- and all-wheel-drive variants mean there’s a Sorento for every taste.

Pros
Competent road manners,
Competent road manners,
attractive packaging.

Cons
Limited third-row access,
lifeless steering, pricey.

The 2018 Kia Sorento ticks all the crossover-SUV boxes, especially in turbo-4 form.

Pros
Upscale feel
Cabin is solid, quiet
Turbo-4’s responsive tune
Well-controlled ride

Cons
Second-row seats need more support
Turbo-4? No third row
Third-row seat has slim space

With warm hatch performance matched to all-wheel drive surety, the Audi Q2 2.0 TFSI quattro is arguably the sweet spot in the German car maker's compact SUV range.

Pros
Quick without being manically so
Adroit handling
Edgy styling
Seamless seven-speed S tronic transmission
Excellent off-road dynamics

Cons
Plenty of road and wind noise
Some cheap elements in the cabin
Pretty cramped second row
Boot space well short of class leaders

The 2018 Audi Q2 2.0 TFSI Quattro has arrived, and it all makes sense. And there have been a couple of extra little tweaks to the Audi Q2 2018 range.
There isn't much major visual differentiation between the newly added 2.0 TFSI Quattro version and the more affordable petrol model aside from this version rolling on 18-inch wheels as opposed to the 17s of the base petrol, and the entry-level model misses out on body-colour mouldings around the wheels, side skirts and bumpers. Both the quattro models look identical to one another.

Pros
Decent levels of equipment
New petrol AWD model is a peach
A fairly charming thing overall

Cons
Limited boot space in quattro models
Back seat isn't massive
Lacks some storage

By: 
carsguide.com.au

The Audi Q2 is a small SUV with a smart interior, plenty of optional high-tech touches and a raised driving position, but the rear seats are quite upright and therefore not particularly comfy.

Pros
Relaxing to drive
Stylish, well-built interior
Great high-tech options

Cons
Back seats a little too upright
Expensive top-spec models
Poor rear visibility
