Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2018 Nissan Pathfinder should be on the list for shoppers looking for a large crossover. The Pathfinder is highly functional, but not entirely interesting.

Pros
Comfortable seating all the way around
Comparable fuel economy to rivals
Common-sense standard safety features
Adequate power

Cons
Relatively anodyne interior style
Coarse V-6
Base models are spartan
Low-slung second row seats

After last year's significant updates, the 2018 Nissan Pathfinder offers a few minor changes, although one is notable: Automatic emergency braking now comes standard on all trim levels. Other enhancements include a rear-seat reminder system, additional USB charging ports, and expanded availability of the Pathfinder's Midnight Edition appearance package and adaptive cruise control system.

PROS
V6 engine delivers strong acceleration with decent fuel economy
Third-row seat is easy to access
Offers robust towing capacity
Automatic emergency braking is standard on every trim level

CONS
Top trim's ride quality may be too firm for some drivers
Third-row space is less roomy than in some rivals
Cargo capacity and small-item storage is below average

Completely redesigned for 2019.Revised styling.New standard features.BMW's redesigned 2019 X4 is a more sporting and stylish alternative to the traditional luxury crossover. It's related to the X3 SUV but has a sleeker, more coupelike profile. It's also a bit wider, longer and shorter in height than the X3, signaling its mission from the moment you lay eyes on it.

Pros
Both available engines are smooth, powerful and fuel-efficient
Easy to personalize thanks to a long list of standard and optional features
Impressive handling for an SUV

Cons
Rear headroom is a bit tight
The sloping roofline compromises cargo space
Android Auto is not available
Pricey when fully optioned
