Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2020 GLB-Class is the smallest Mercedes that can be equipped with three rows of seats.

Pros
Chunky styling
Lots of tech
Right-sized

Cons
Third row looks tight
Too many Mercedes SUVs?
Bound to be expensive

Slotting into the narrow space between the GLA-Class and the GLC-Class is the 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLB-Class compact crossover, but this mini-ute pulls its boxier styling from the vaunted GLE- and G-Class SUVs. We saw the concept in April at the Shanghai auto show and Mercedes-Benz unveiled the production model, in all its mini-ute glory, at an event in June; we expect the GLB to be on sale by the end of 2019.

Mercedes-Benz launches new-generation cars every other week, but whole new nameplates are rarer things. Enter the family-focused GLB small SUV...

Pros
Back seat and boot space
Comfortable suspension
Cool design inside and out

Cons
Transmission calibration issues
Base engine is nothing special
Is there scope for a diesel?

The 2019 Cadillac XT5 ranked #20 in Luxury Midsize SUVs. Currently the Cadillac XT5 has a score of 7.8 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 31 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Low base price
Classic, elegant cabin
Smooth ride

Cons
Uninspired handling

By: 
usnews.com

The XT5's wireless smartphone charging pad gets an upgrade for 2019 and now offers 15 watts of juice (versus last year's 5 watts) to speed charging times. Other changes are limited to four new colors—Shadow Metallic, Red Horizon Tintcoat, Dark Mocha Metallic, and Manhattan Noir Metallic—and a new Kona Brown leather interior with Sapele wood trim.

Pros
Quiet interior,
distinctive exterior styling,
spacious cargo bay.

Cons
Somewhat gruff V-6 powertrain,
muddled driving dynamics,
busy interior design.

By:

The 2019 Cadillac XT5 is a solid, if forgettable, crossover. Consider the Caddy’s myriad rivals, too.

Pros
Comfortable ride
Strong V-6 power
Luxurious interior with right options
Low base price...

Cons
… that can climb quickly
Light on personality
Front-wheel drive model a bore
Infotainment can frustrate
