Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The Mercedes-Benz GLA merges hatchback size with crossover functionality and luxury appointments, with better-than-average results.

Pros
Zippy to drive
Nimble handling
Practical hatchback shape
AMG GLA45 is downright sporty

Cons
Cramped rear seats
Interior doesn't impress
So-so visibility
AMG gets expensive with a quickness

We think that the 2020 model year will be the last for the current-generation GLA before a new model arrives for 2021. As such, Mercedes-Benz did not make any changes for the 2020 model year.

Pros
Responsive handling,
lots of available features,
interesting design.

Cons
Cramped interior,
uncomfortable ride,
not as luxurious as a Benz should be.

The 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class comes with all wheel drive, and front wheel drive. Available transmissions include: 7-speed automated manual.The AMG GLA 45 has been discontinued.

Pros
One of the most entertaining crossovers in the class
Respectable fuel economy considering its performance
High clearance and optional all-wheel drive lend some all-weather capability
Long list of available tech and safety features

Cons
Firm ride quality can grow tiresome on rough roads
Automatic transmission operates sluggishly in stop-and-go situations
Not much legroom, headroom or cargo room
Road and wind noise could be better tamped down

The 2020 Buick Enclave is a crossover SUV with a luxurious feel, and a price to match.

Pros
Attractive design
Spacious third row
Contemporary interior
Good infotainment system

Cons
Expensive with options
Active safety tech should be standard
Lousy fuel economy
Compromised all-wheel drive

The Buick Enclave rolls into 2020 with a new, optional Sport Touring package. Available exclusively on the mid-range Essence trim, the new appearance package adds a black mesh front grille, body-color grille surround, and chrome-and-graphite 20-inch wheels. All Enclave models now come with an updated infotainment system with an 8.0-inch display; high-definition backup and 360-degree exterior cameras are also available. Premium and high-end Avenir models offer slightly more in the way of luxury thanks to a massage function for the driver and front-seat passenger; four-way power-adjustable lumbar support is also now standard for those seats.

Pros
Graceful styling, generous infotainment offerings, cargo-hauling champ.

Cons
Obvious evidence of cost cutting, expensive driver-assistance tech, mediocre fuel economy.
