Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2017 Land Rover Discovery Sport ranks 13 out of 14 Luxury Compact SUVs. The 2017 Land Rover Discovery Sport is the most capable off-road vehicle in its class. It also has plenty of cargo space, and it's the only luxury compact SUV to offer a third row of seats. However, the engine feels a little weak, and it gets worse fuel economy than many competitors.

Pros
Excellent off-road ability
Ample cargo room
Only SUV in the class available with a third row

Cons
Underpowered engine
Low fuel economy
Low predicted reliability rating

Although it's not a working implement like the classic Land Rover Discovery, the quirky Discovery Sport has plenty of merits up against rivals in the entry-level luxury class.
Anchoring the Land Rover lineup should be a cakewalk of a job, especially given that there is routinely a waiting list to order the brand's Range Rover models. But it hasn't always been that easy, which is why Land Rover started from scratch with its Discovery Sport.

Pros
Comfortable, quiet ride
Roomy interior for five
Decently off-road capable
Land Rover style inside and out

Cons
Too softly styled for a Land Rover?
Third-row seat is a tease
Active safety features are optional
Gets expensive fast

There are some new, noteworthy options for the 2017 Discovery Sport. A new interface known as InControl Touch Pro boasts a larger screen, better graphics and faster responses. The new Intelligent Dynamics pack includes an adaptive suspension and an active all-wheel-drive system that can power only two wheels for improved fuel economy. The new Dynamic Design package includes a variety of special interior and exterior design elements. A new low-speed, off-road cruise control system is also now standard.

Pros
More passenger and cargo space than most competitors offer
Above-average capabilities off-road and in bad weather conditions
Available third-row seating is unique to the segment.

Cons
Mediocre acceleration and fuel economy for the segment
Only one engine choice
Transmission is slow to downshift
Cabin is well-made but less luxurious in appearance than rival

The 2017 BMW X4 is an alternative approach to tall-riding SUVs, if you can even call it that.The 2017 BMW X4 is a nice thing. Describing it any further requires a little understanding and a break with conventional rules.It's not a coupe, and it's not much of an SUV. It's not a tall wagon, and the X4 certainly isn't much of a sedan.
Instead, it doubles down on the recipe that BMW tested with the bigger X6 and takes an existing SUV and tapers its roofline for a more interesting look and less interior space. In this case, the donor is the more upright X3, and the X4 is fashioned to be a direct rival to the Range Rover Evoque, Porsche Macan, and even the Lincoln MKC.

Pros
A seductive roofline
M40i is a true performance vehicle
Sticky handling
Base engine is plenty quick

Cons
Cargo and rear passenger space is compromised
Thick rear haunches
Not quite a Macan Turbo competitor

The 2017 BMW X4 ranks 13 out of 14 Luxury Compact SUVs. The 2017 BMW X4's strong engine options and sporty driving dynamics make it a great performer among luxury compact SUVs, but competitors offer more interior and cargo space, as well as higher predicted reliability scores.

Pros
Potent engines
User-friendly infotainment system
Accurate steering

Cons
Cramped back seats
Class-trailing cargo capacity

You might already know that sitting up high and having a commanding view of the road can be a great thing. So if you're looking for a luxury SUV that gives you that sense of security along with a sleek design and strong performance, the uniquely styled 2016 BMW X4 is an interesting alternative.
Mid way through last year the xDrive35i model was replaced by the more performance-oriented M40i model. For all 2017 models, wireless phone charging and a Wi-Fi hotspot are added to the options list, while the upgraded iDrive interface included with navigation has been updated. Finally, the steering wheel included in the optional M Sport package has a new design

Pros
Strong performance and good fuel economy from its two available engines
High-quality cabin looks and feels expensive
Comfortable ride quality despite its sporty nature
Responsive handling bettered only by pricier sport-tuned rivals
High-performance M40i trim level is a rarity for the segment.

Cons
Low rear seat reduces comfort relative to the X3 and most competitors
Small cargo area for a vehicle in this class
Rearward visibility is compromised by sloping roofline
Costs more than a similarly equipped X3 which offers more room inside
Some controls can be difficult to learn
Adaptive cruise control doesn't perform as well as those of rivals.
