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

The 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class ranked #4 in Luxury Subcompact SUVs. Currently the Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class has a score of 7.8 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 26 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Sporty handling
Impressive infotainment system and features
Thrilling AMG model

Cons
Inefficient base transmission
Cramped back seat

By: 
usnews.com

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 2018 GMC Acadia ranked #15 in Midsize SUVs. Currently the GMC Acadia has a score of 8.0 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 23 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Upscale interior
Smooth ride
User-friendly infotainment system

Cons
Cramped third row
Less cargo space than some rivals

By: 
usnews.com

A V-6 engine is optional and provides decent hustle, while the standard four-cylinder engine is the choice for buyers mindful of fuel economy.Handsome styling, a well-connected infotainment system, and room for up to seven passengers make the Acadia an easy family favorite.

Pros
Seating for seven,
handsome styling,
a high-tech cabin.

Cons
Uneven interior build quality,
disappointing fuel economy,
a tight third row and cargo hold.

By: 
caranddriver.com

The 3.6-liter V6 is now available on SLE-1 AWD models. Last year's All Terrain package deleted the third-row seat, but it can now be ordered with the third row intact.

PROS
Refined ride quality makes it comfortable in any kind of driving situation
Quick acceleration from the optional V6 engine
Simple cabin layout means everything is usable at a glance
Modern onboard technology keeps you connected

CONS
Not many places to store small items
Some rival crossovers have more cargo and third-row space
Cabin isn't particularly luxurious, even in the priciest trim levels
