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

The 2018 Jaguar F-Pace ranked #4 in Luxury Compact SUVs. Currently the Jaguar F-Pace has a score of 8.6 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 21 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Sports-car-like handling
Comfortably seats five adults
Extra-large cargo hold
Fuel-efficient optional turbodiesel engine

Cons
Minor irritations with the infotainment system
Optional turbodiesel engine is sluggish off the line

Jaguar adds a third engine option for the 2018 F-Pace. A 247-horsepower turbocharged four-cylinder engine is the new engine for the base model. A more powerful 296-hp version is also new and arrives midway through the model year. It replaces the 340-hp version of the supercharged V6.

PROS
Available supercharged V6 delivers quick and powerful acceleration
Bigger cargo space than many rivals
Handles and brakes like a sport sedan
Fuel-efficient diesel option gets 29 mpg combined

CONS
More road and wind noise in the cabin than competitors
The larger the wheels, the poorer the ride comfort
Mediocre infotainment system with clunky smartphone integration
Interior materials feel cheap for a luxury SUV at this price

The 2018 Jaguar F-Pace is a statement of style over sedans. It looks like it belongs, which we suppose is the point.

Pros
Great road manners and sporty feel
Variety of engine and trim choices
Attractive styling
Widescreen infotainment unit

Cons
Safety features and rearview camera are added-cost options
Interior too dark and plain in some colors
Ride can be harsh in larger wheel size configurations
