Lexus has renamed its NX 200t the NX 300 for 2018. Mechanically, nothing has changed. But Lexus has made the Safety System+ package, which includes front collision mitigation, lane departure alert, high-beam assist and adaptive cruise control as standard equipment this year.

PROS
Generous backseat room
Available power-folding rear seat
Cabin is very quiet at highway speeds

CONS
Remote Touch Interface can be distracting to use
Limited rear cargo volume

The 2018 Volkswagen Atlas is an all-new midsize crossover. It slots in between the compact Tiguan and high-end Touareg in Volkswagen's lineup. The Atlas is actually larger than the Touareg, but it doesn't offer the same level of features or options.

PROS
Spacious interior offers ample room for passenger in all three rows
Great compromise between precise handling and everyday comfort
Straightforward cabin design makes everything easy to use

CONS
Fuel economy lags that of some competitors
Not very quick to accelerate, even with the optional V6
