Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

Two new performance models join the 2018 GLC-Class Coupe lineup: the AMG GLC 63 and AMG GLC 63 S. Mercedes has also renamed most of the GLC's options packages to better convey the features added. Heated wipers are now standard, and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto can now be added with the Smartphone Integration package.

PROS
Elegant and premium interior design
Excellent balance between agile handling and a comfortable ride
Abundant driver safety aids work great
Four- and six-cylinder engines are fuel-efficient for the class

CONS
Hard to brake smoothly
Rear headroom isn't great, especially in the middle
Infotainment controls aren't always easy to use
Less useful cargo area than in regular GLC

Mercedes-AMG peppers performance and spicy styling into its coupe/crossover casserole. The powertrain platter includes a 362-hp twin-turbo V-6 or twin-turbo V-8s pumping out 469 or 503 ponies. All engines pair with a nine-speed automatic and all-wheel drive.

Pros
Porsche 911 quick,
grippy handling,
strong brakes,
V-8 rumble.

Cons
Stiff ride,
noisy tires,
feels big and heavy from behind the wheel.

The 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class captivates crossover types with its lush cabin and its plush ride; there’s AMG power on tap if you must.

Pros
Cabinet-grade interior (agency or furniture)
Choose your body
Choose your engine
Burmester audio thrills
Doesn’t cut short on technology

Cons
Expensive safety options
It’s not a Coupe, it’s just less useful
Numb steering (GLC 300)
Rivals have diesel, plug-ins

The 2018 Tesla Model X ranked #8 in Luxury Midsize SUVs. Currently the Tesla Model X has a score of 8.5 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 19 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Absurd acceleration
Long range
Lots of cargo space
Large, crisp touch screen

Cons
Inconsistent build quality
Second row has less legroom than rivals
No Apple CarPlay or Android Auto

The 2018 Tesla Model X is the only all-electric SUV you can buy this year. It’s swift, pleasant to travel in, and relatively practical, save for its somewhat silly doors.

Pros
Only all-electric crossover you can buy
Amazing performance
That 17-inch touchscreen
Comfortable, quiet ride

Cons
Overinflated Model S looks
Gimmicky rear doors
Easily hits six figures
Not as spacious as you’d think

By:

Tesla updates its vehicles on an ongoing basis rather than at discrete model-year intervals. As such, there's no clear-cut "new for 2018" information. Features and trim levels are tweaked sporadically. Notable recent changes compared to 2017 Model Xs include new fold-flat second-row seating and streamlining of the Model X's optionsavailability. The 90D trim level has also been discontinued.

PROS
Instant, giddying acceleration
Good range for an electric vehicle
Three-row seating is available
Very quiet

CONS
Vast windshield lets far too much sun and heat into the cabin
Finicky upward-swinging rear doors impede functionality
