Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2017 Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class ranks 2 out of 5 Luxury Subcompact SUVs. The 2017 Mercedes-Benz GLA SUV offers compact-car-like agility and fuel economy in an upscale package. However, there’s little passenger and storage space – even for a subcompact – and its ride isn't as cushioned as many of its rivals.

Pros
Powerful engines
Outstanding handling
Lavish interior
Class-leading reliability score

Cons
Poor cargo capacity
Small back seats

By:

The 2017 Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class is a small, luxury compact 'ute that prioritizes "looks" over "feels," or in other words, it's probably perfect for a lot of shoppers.
Mercedes' smallest crossover—if you can call it that—returns this year to challenge our ideas of compact SUVs, performance, and rear seat head room. Offered as a base front-drive GLA250, all-wheel drive GLA250, or top Mercedes-AMG GLA45, the GLA class may follow Mercedes' nomenclature as an SUV, but it's in a class all its own.

Pros
Impressive dynamic driving
Lots of turbo fun
Sporty and small for two
Decent fuel economy
Great options ...

Cons
but they're pricey
$60,000 for a subcompact hatch?
Cramped rear seat

By:

Apple CarPlay and Android Auto functionality is available for both 2017 Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class versions this year. Mercedes says the instrument panel has been mildly redesigned, and the 8-inch display screen is thinner than before. The new AMG Dinamica package adds faux-suede upholstery to the GLA 45's steering wheel and dashboard.

Pros
Sporty handling and performance even in the base model
AMG GLA 45's long list of available technology and safety features.

Cons
Ride quality is firm to the point some might object
Road and wind noise is in abundance
Automatic transmission can operate awkwardly in stop-and-go situations
Less cargo capacity than its rivals.

The 2017 Infiniti QX60 has a rich look and excellent interior space, but it doesn't deliver the driving polish that it should.
Infiniti was fairly early to the three-row luxury crossover game with its JX, which has been continuously updated—and renamed—to become the 2017 QX60. Sharing its underpinnings with the Nissan Pathfinder, the QX60, like its less-luxurious counterpart, offers front- or all-wheel drive and a hybrid variant.

Pros
Elegant styling
Excellent third-row access
Comfortable for a family
Rear Collision Intervention safety system

Cons
Less polished on road than it should be
Infotainment lags rivals
Costly, ineffective hybrid

The 2017 Infiniti QX60 ranks 20 out of 22 Luxury Midsize SUVs. The 2017 Infiniti QX60 is the blue light special for luxury midsize 3-row SUVs, delivering a pretty good package for less money than most. It has great safety scores, an inviting list of included and optional amenities, and one of the most agreeable third-row seats you can find. But uninspiring performance and a few other hiccups cut into the QX60’s overall appeal.

Pros
Easy-to-use infotainment system
Adult-friendly third-row seats
Outstanding fuel economy

Cons
Steering feels vague

By: 
usnews.com

For 2017, the QX60 receives a revised engine with more power with no reduction in fuel efficiency. A larger multimedia screen, a hands-free liftgate and automatic high beams are now available.

Pros
Quiet, comfortable cabin makes for a soothing ride
Easy access to third-row seats
Smooth transmission operation adds to luxurious feel
Plush ride quality that makes long trips enjoyable

Cons
Not as sporty as some other large luxury SUVs
Desirable features are all extra and bundled into packages
Off-road capability not part of its formula
Tight third-row legroom for adults
