Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class blends hatchback with crossover, with better than mixed results.

Pros
Quick on its feet
Turbo engines are a blast
Hatchback practicality
Very good fuel economy
GLA45 AMG earns its initials

Cons
Tight rear seats
A $60,000 GLA45 AMG? That escalated quickly
Interior can seem plasticky

2018 GLA-class amount to little more than a light freshening. Newly optional LED headlamps flank a restyled grille with crossbars that feature rectangular punctures like those on the larger GLS-class SUV. A revised front bumper with more-prominent fog lamps, revised LED taillights, and new wheel designs round out the exterior tweaks. Inside, an 8.0-inch infotainment screen replaces last year’s 7.0-incher; additional chrome brightwork adorns the door panels and the center console; and new, more legible black-faced gauges replace the 2017’s gray-faced units.

Pros
Quick reflexes and acceleration,
all-weather capability,
stylish inside and out.

Cons
Cramped cabin,
turbo lag around town,
ride can be overly firm at times.

The Audi Q7 e-tron is a plug-in-hybrid that promises low running costs with a healthy slug of performance.Juggling between diesel power, electric or both happens in a way that’s almost imperceivable. Cruising on electric power, the Q7 might decide you’re going to use more battery charge in the approaching town (courtesy of a heads-up from the sat-nav) starting the diesel engine as a generator in anticipation, while the active throttle pedal vibrates gently to encourage you to conserve power.

pros
Cheap to run
Spacious
Quick

Cons
No seven-seater
Expensive to buy
Not so frugal cruising
