Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

Sure, crossovers make more sense as luxury vehicles. But that's not why you want a 2018 Mercedes-Benz G-Class in your garage.The 2018 Mercedes-Benz G-Class is a soldier in a business suit.

That “clunk” the doors make when they close
Wild off-road ability from the G550 4x4²
Faster than it ever should be

Cons
Or you could buy seven Jeep Wranglers, one for every weekday
Light on safety tech
G550 4x4² presents many urban challenges
New 2019 just around the corner

The 2019 Tesla Model X ranked #6 in Luxury Hybrid and Electric SUVs. Currently the Tesla Model X has a score of 7.6 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 20 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Supercar-like acceleration
Poised handling
Excellent amount of cargo space
Futuristic, intuitive features

Cons
Cramped third row
Stiff ride quality
Concerning fit and finish issues

By: 
usnews.com

The 2019 Tesla Model X is no longer the only all-electric SUV you can buy this year. It’s swift, pleasant to travel in, and relatively practical, save for its somewhat silly doors.

Pros
Doors with more flair than some supercars
Performance and handling
Smooth, quiet ride
Quick, clear 17-inch touchscreen

Cons
Looks like a bulbous Model S
Rear doors are a gimmick
Disappointing interior space
Prices go well past $140,000

By: 
thecarconnection.com

The 2019 Tesla Model X SUV comes with all wheel drive. Available transmissions include: 1-speed direct drive.Revised trim-level lineup with greater range capability
New Full Self-Driving Capability feature adds extra skills to Autopilot

PROS
Instant and powerful acceleration
Electric range is impressive
Three-row seating is available
No engine noise makes for a quiet cabin

CONS
Finicky upward-swinging rear doors impede functionality
More squeaks and rattles than other high-end luxury SUVs
Rough, choppy ride with larger wheels
Vast windshield lets far too much sun and heat into the cabin

By: 
edmunds.com

The 2019 Tesla Model X might be the greenest—and one of the fastest—way to tote up to seven people over hill and dale. As the crossover cousin to the brand's iconic Model S sedan, the X is actually practical, with all-wheel drive, a high-tech cabin with room for up to seven, and striking but fussy Falcon Wing doors.
