Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

Pros
Great handling
Punchy engine
Quick-shifting transmission

Cons
Interior materials quality is mixed
Exhaust note can get too noisy
Ride isn’t very smooth

By:

The 2019 Maserati Ghibli comes with rear wheel drive, and all wheel drive. Available transmissions include: 8-speed shiftable automatic.New exterior paint options and interior surfaces.Improved infotainment and climate system interface.

Pros
Angles, curves and lines as only Italians can do
A joy to drive quickly on a winding road
Front seats are supportive and comfortable
Sound from the tailpipe is a symphony unto itself

Cons
Interior fit and finish doesn't have the refinement of others in the class
Entering or exiting the rear seat is tight

By:

The latest BMW X3 is well worth considering if you’re looking for a family SUV with a spacious and plush interior that’s relaxing to drive.

Pros
Spacious cabin
Practical boot
Quiet and comfortable to drive

Cons
Desirable options cost extra
Looks like the old car
Cabin doesn’t look very exciting

By: 
carwow.co.uk

The X3 also becomes a more full-fledged member of the BMW family with its upgraded interior. And at a time when some of the brand’s passenger-car offerings have strayed from BMW’s historically strong dynamics, the new X3 makes an encouraging showing there as well.

Pros
Chassis tuning like BMWs of old,
improved interior,
plenty of passenger and cargo space.

Cons
Imprecise variable-ratio steering,
goofy electronic shifter,
the entry-level four pales next to the six-cylinder.
