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 Buick Encore reaches for the compact-luxury stars, but it falls shy on styling and front-seat space.When it was new in 2013, the Buick Encore was virtually alone on the automotive landscape as one of few small crossover SUVs. Today, that's a crowded niche, with pricey and prestigious rivals like the BMW X1, Mercedes-Benz GLA, and Audi Q3 as numerous as the more affordable ones (Trax, Renegade, 500X, CX-3, and HR-V).
A 2017 update aims to keep it competitive. Most noticeable is the new front end, but the updated interior, complete with an 8.0-inch touchscreen and Apple Car Play and Android Auto, make it easier to live with on a daily basis.

Pros
Quiet, calm interior
Well-equipped
Back seat fits adults
Two-tone trim is tony
Cargo space is ample

Cons
Base engine's sluggish acceleration
Mediocre gas mileage
Cabin feels narrow
Are hatchbacks luxury shapes?

A quiet cabin, user-friendly technology and city-friendly compact size make the 2017 Buick Encore worth a look if more conventional crossover SUVs simply seem too large. Modest performance and tight quarters limit the Encore's appeal, however.

Pros
Quiet interior on the highway
Excellent crash-test scores
Small engines deliver solid fuel economy
Long list of tech and safety features.

Cons
Tepid performance from base engine
Small cargo area can't swallow much luggage.

The 2017 Buick Encore ranks 3 out of 12 Subcompact SUVs. The 2017 Buick Encore is ranked highly among subcompact SUVs because it does what you want – and does it well. Its small footprint gives you excellent maneuverability, yet its spacious interior provides enough room for you, your friends, and their stuff, all wrapped in a classy, upscale package.

Pros
User-friendly technology
Generous list of standard features
Luxurious interior

Cons
Underpowered base engine
Narrow rear seats
