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

BMW has rearranged the X1’s lineup for 2018 and now offers five distinct trims—base, Convenience, M Sport, Premium, and M Sport Premium—each with more features than the last. Only a few features are still offered as standalone options on non-Premium trims, including front and rear parking sensors ($800), LED headlamps ($950), Navigation ($950), and heated seats and steering wheel ($550). Some new features join the party for 2018; a backup camera is now standard, as is BMW’s ConnectedDrive in-car concierge service. Apple CarPlay is now optional ($300) as is onboard Wi-Fi with wireless device charging ($500). A new color—Sunset Orange Metallic—replaces Chestnut Bronze.

Pros
Sweetheart engine and transmission,
athletic chassis,
capacious cargo hold.

Cons
Unsupportive standard seats,
slow infotainment system,
subtle exterior styling.

By:

The 2018 BMW X1 is a compelling crossover pick for a budget BMW buyer who can’t do without a roundel.

pros
Subtle but good looks
Responsive turbo-4
Good 8-speed automatic
Relatively good value in base guise
Spacious cargo area

Cons
Options add up quickly
Front seats aren’t the best seats
Pricey advanced safety package
No manual transmission?

The 2018 BMW X1 is a five-seat compact SUV in the luxury segment. It comes in two versions: the front-wheel-drive X1 sDrive28i and the all-wheel-drive X1 xDrive28i. From there, you have two directions to go: xLine Design or the sportier M Sport Design. After that, you can add various option groups that BMW calls tiers. The M Sport Design already comes with the Convenience group, which is optional on the xLine Design. Afterward, packages and stand-alone options are available based on which initial design and group you select.

PROS
Strong and responsive turbo engine
Sharp handling makes it fun to drive
Plenty of rear passenger and cargo room
High-quality materials and fit-and-finish

CONS
Not particularly quiet on the highway
Standard sport suspension may be jarring on rough roads
