The 2019 Mitsubishi Outlander is a solid option outside of the usual crossover SUV choices but is often forgotten for a reason.

Pros
Good base features
Large touchscreen standard
Available all-wheel drive across the range
Updated styling for 2019

Cons
Cheap interior feel
Overworked inline-4
Thirsty, underpowered V-6
Tight third row
Expensive active safety tech

The Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV is a roomy SUV that’s very economical for short journeys if you can plug it in to charge the battery – it’s just a shame it looks a bit drab and doesn’t drive that well

Pros
Cheap to run on short journeys
Quiet around town
Roomy back seats

Cons
Terrible infotainment system
Unsettled on bumpy roads
Drab interior

The Encore GX, despite the familiar name, is an all-new model for Buick for 2020.Buick offers several attractive and comfortable crossovers, and the all-new Encore GX occupies the smaller end of that spectrum. The 2020 Buick Encore GX initially sounds as if it were a trim level that is offered on the subcompact Buick Encore, but it is actually its own, bigger model positioned below the compact Buick Envision. The Encore GX gives Buick another entry in the ever-popular crossover market, with its purposeful design and efficient packaging.

Cons

By:

Sharp, bold exterior styling
Standard active safety equipment

Cons
Consumer indifference to an undefined brand
