Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2018 Nissan Armada ranked #6 in Large SUVs. Currently the Nissan Armada has a score of 7.6 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 19 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Strong V8 engine
Good towing capacity
Expansive second-row seats
Well-built cabin

Cons
Outdated infotainment system
Below-average cargo space
Below-average fuel economy
Smaller front seats than rivals

By:

Instead of imitating the boxy and costly stalwarts of this popular segment, the Armada breaks the mold—sort of. After all, it’s still a big-bodied, fuel-thirsty family dreadnought. But the three-row Armada has a serene, expensive interior and an upscale exterior that enable it to undermine high-rent rivals when it comes to price.

Pros
Rich,
comfortable,
and quiet interior;
useful power and towing capacity;
looks expensive.

Cons
Old-school fuel economy,
no Apple CarPlay or Android Auto,
imprecise steering.

By:

Nissan redesigned the Armada last year, so the 2018 model carries over with only minor changes. NissanConnect telematics services, an 8-inch touchscreen display, HD radio, hands-free text messaging, and additional USB charging ports now come standard on all trims. A rearview mirror that can stream a constant video feed from the rear camera is also new this year

PROS
High-quality interior is appealing
Smooth V8 engine delivers ample power for towing and hauling
Rides more comfortably, less trucklike, than some rival SUVs

CONS
Third-row seating isn't as spacious as some rivals
Infotainment system is dated
No getting around the V8's poor fuel economy

The 2018 Land Rover Discovery ranked #11 in Luxury Midsize SUVs. Currently the Land Rover Discovery has a score of 8.4 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 10 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Exceptional off-road capabilities
Potent powertrains
Turbodiesel models get excellent fuel economy
High-end, feature-filled, roomy cabin

Cons
Subpar gas mileage with base engine

By: 
usnews.com

The 2018 Land Rover Discovery is a spacious three-row crossover with more capability than anything that doesn’t ride on tank tracks.

Pros
Incredible capability
Strong engines
Impressive 8-speed automatics
Spacious interior

Cons
Contemporary shape on a classic name
Tangled options that add up
Lagging infotainment system
No Apple CarPlay/Android Auto support

By: 
thecarconnection.com

For 2018, the Land Rover Discovery comes standard with frontal collision mitigation with automatic emergency braking. Additionally, the Td6 diesel engine is now available on all three trim levels.The Land Rover Discovery has a relatively simple lineup of three trim levels, and we recommend the midlevel HSE.

PROS
Smooth driving manners on the road
Above-average capabilities off-road
Interior is luxurious with excellent materials
Clever features in terms of utility and technology

CONS
Diesel engine option has little advantage over standard gas engine
Touchscreen interface can be slow and difficult to operate
