Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2018 Lexus GX ranked #21 in Luxury Midsize SUVs. Currently the Lexus GX has a score of 7.3 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 40 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Outstanding off-road capability
Good towing capacity

Cons
Poor fuel economy
Unexceptional cabin comfort and features
Small, inconvenient cargo area
Weak acceleration

There are only a few minor changes in available features for the 2018 Lexus GX 460.If you're seriously considering the GX 460, you probably want to venture off-road in it. But if that's the case, you'll want the added ground clearance the Luxury trim's adaptive air suspension provides. Without it, the GX 460's ground clearance is worse than some crossovers.

PROS
Impressive off-road capability in a segment largely without it
High view out
Easy-to-use interior controls

CONS
Rough ride on broken pavement
Poor fuel economy and acceleration
Seats are uncomfortable
Compromised cargo space and third-row seat

By:

The Lexus GX 460 pairs scads of off-road hardware with lots of luxury trim, but most drivers will be better off with a crossover.

Pros
Solid truck feel
Strong, smooth V-8
Smothering ride
Comfortable cabin
Lots of off-road tech

Cons
Tailgate opens sideways
Light steering
Poor fuel economy
Brake feel
Shallow, narrow cargo area

Hyundai is on a good track. For starters, the new ute looks more grown-up and handsome. The rear glass is more vertical, a boon to headroom for the sort-of-optional third-row seats (more on that later) and cargo space. With shorter overhangs, a longer wheelbase, greater length, and slightly more girth than the ’18 Santa Fe Sport, interior space is up, too. Hyundai increased visibility by employing what it claims is 41 percent more glass area than in the outgoing Santa Fe Sport to nurture the target markets of empty nesters and families moving up from a sedan.

Pros
Sharp looks,
bigger inside and out than the Sport it replaces,
packed with features.

Cons
Some low-rent plastics inside;
small fuel-economy bump;
so which one is this, again?

By:

The 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe is a convincing crossover SUV with room for families and cargo.

Pros
Smooth ride
Compelling value trims with plenty of features
Standard active safety features
Spacious interior
Sharp style

Cons
No available options from the factory
8-speed automatic could use a finishing touch
Average fuel economy
Thin-feeling cloth and leather

By: 
thecarconnection.com

Pros
