Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The Qashqai is certainly one of the bigger cars in the small SUV class.There might be four models, but there are three specification levels. The ST has cloth trim, cruise control, air-conditioning, some fake leather bits and pieces, reversing camera, halogen headlights, four speaker stereo and 17-inch alloy wheels.

Pros
Big interior
Excellent build quality
Comfortable ride

Cons
Interior missing some tech toys
Diesel servicing costs
Fuel consumption high (no stop-start to reduce it)

This is the facelifted Nissan Qashqai, which has been unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show. More than 230,000 examples of the Qashqai were sold in Europe in 2016, but that hasn’t stopped Nissan from giving the its family SUV a thorough overhaul. The headline change is the addition of autonomous driving tech called ProPILOT; by the end of the year, the Qashqai will have the ability to steer, accelerate and brake itself in a single lane on motorways. Nissan can’t yet say whether or not this will be standard on top trim levels, however.
Nissan claims higher-quality materials give the SUV’s cabin a more premium feel. Visible changes include a new flat-bottomed multifunction steering wheel and a fresh user interface for the infotainment system. And a new range-topping Tekna+ grade has been added, bringing luxuries such as 3D-effect quilted leather upholstery.

The new Qashqai features modifications to the suspension and steering to improve comfort, while new insulating materials are claimed to make it more refined. No changes have been made to the range of turbocharged petrol and diesel engines, however, so buyers can choose from an entry-level 113bhp 1.2-litre petrol, a 161bhp 1.6-litre petrol, and 1.5 or 1.6-litre diesels. The 1.5 dCi 110 should be the cheapest to run, with CO2 emissions of 99g/km.

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
