Expert Reviews

Most buyers will be well-served by the GLS 450. It delivers solid performance along with its luxurious cabin, plus it leaves room for customization with numerous options packages.

PROS
Spacious third-row seat can accommodate adults
Ample acceleration with any powertrain choice
Quiet cabin with luxurious trim
Available off-road package gives it true capability in the dirt

CONS
Many desirable features don't come standard
Large price jump from GLS 450 to GLS 550

Lots of flexibility
Big luxury SUV panache
Lots of safety technology on tap
AMG–no, really

Dated switchgear
COMAND is cumbersome
Diesel’s been deleted

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: 
thecarconnection.com

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
