Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2018 Porsche Macan is unchanged.We like the balance of price and performance you get in the Macan S. It has more capability than you'll likely ever need, yet it is still tame enough for daily driving. As for options, the Premium Package Plus is a good place to start since it adds a nice grouping of desirable equipment without getting too fancy with the customization possibilities.

PROS
Quick acceleration regardless of engine choice
Most athletic and engaging to drive SUV in its segment
Surprisingly comfortable and composed ride
Long list of options means you can customize every last detail

CONS
Must pay for numerous stand-alone options to get full-featured cabin
Less rear-seat and cargo space than segment competitors

The 2018 Porsche Macan ranked #4 in Luxury Compact SUVs. Currently the Porsche Macan has a score of 8.6 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 26 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Outstanding acceleration
Nimble handling and quiet ride
Posh interior
User-friendly infotainment system

Cons
Subpar fuel economy
Undersized cargo hold
More expensive than most rivals

By:

The 2018 Porsche Macan is the performance pick among compact crossovers because of course it is. Purists may scoff, but we don’t much care.

Pros
Breathtaking speed from a small crossover
Plenty of optional goodies
GTS model hits a performance sweet spot
Fit and finish is perfectly Porsche

Cons
Gets expensive in a hurry
Oddly shaped cargo area
Did we mention it can crest six figures?
No manual transmission. Don’t even ask.
Back seats aren’t really all that spacious

The subcompact crossover SUV class is gaining in popularity and the latest entrant, the 2018 Hyundai Kona, has a lot of potential to take the lead. Its exterior style may be somewhat polarizing, but it drives better than the competition. It also delivers a lot for the money and checks all of the boxes that shoppers want in this type of vehicle.
PROS
Optional turbocharged engine provides quick acceleration
Nimble handling makes it enjoyable to drive
Lots of features for your money

CONS
Weak base engine

By: 
edmunds.com

The 2018 Hyundai Kona ranked #1 in Subcompact SUVs. Currently the Hyundai Kona has a score of 8.8 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 14 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Agile handling
Potent available turbo-four engine
Intuitive infotainment system

Cons
Lower maximum cargo capacity than rivals
Uninspiring base engine

By: 
usnews.com

With its quirky styling, the Kona is set to perk up some fun. Choose from a 147-hp 2.0-liter inline-four with a six-speed automatic transmission or a 175-hp turbo 1.6-liter inline-four with a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic. Front-wheel drive is standard; all-wheel drive is optional with both engines.

Pros
Tight build and rattle-free cabin,
well-tuned dual-clutch automatic transmission.

Cons
Some interior plastics not up to par,
penalty-box rear seat.
