Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The Renault Kadjar is a stylish crossover that's based on the same platform as the Nissan Qashqai. But, while the Qashqai took undisputed class honours when it arrived in early 2014, the game has moved on, and the Renault equivalent betters it in almost every area. However, the Renault just falls short of the all round appeal of the SEAT Ateca.
There's a single body style for the Kadjar, and it slots into the Renault range above the Captur. Both of these models will be joined by the larger Koleos SUV later in 2017. There are four trim levels to choose from: the entry-level, air con-equipped Expression+, the mid-spec Dynamique and Dynamique S, while at the top of the range is Signature trim. Cars in top-spec trim are expensive, but they do boast a generous amount of kit, including a Bose stereo, 19-inch alloy wheels, and touchscreen nav is included on Dynamique models and above.
The Kadjar earned a five-star rating when it was tested by Euro NCAP, just like the Nissan Qashqai. All but the entry-level model has lane departure warning and traffic sign recognition as standard. Autonomous emergency braking, which will automatically apply the brakes if a collision is imminent, is an option on all trim levels.

The Renault Kadjar is a family crossover that not only rivals the Honda CR-V, Mazda CX-5 and Volkswagen Tiguan, but is also a worthy alternative to best-selling hatchbacks such as the Ford Focus and Volkswagen Golf.
The Kadjar shares many parts with the Nissan Qashqai, but its body is a bit bigger. This means you get slightly more passenger space and a larger boot. The Renault’s interior also packs a high-tech infotainment system and an eye-pleasing dashboard.

Pros
Competitive price
Practical cabin
Excellent fuel economy

Cons
Just one petrol engine
High-end models are expensive
Sunroof reduces rear headroom

By:

As a small SUV, the Kadjar is also a rival to the Kia Sportage, Seat Ateca and Skoda Yeti, but it's the aforementioned Nissan that it has most in common with, because it uses the same platform and engines.
This means Kadjar buyers can choose from turbocharged 1.2-litre petrol and 1.5- and 1.6-litre diesels, although the 1.6 is the only option if you want four-wheel drive.
In terms of interior space, the Kadjar and Qashqai are closely matched, and both offer a high-riding driving postion that gives you a good view down the road. However, the Kadjar's styling is closer to that of its smaller SUV sibling, the Renault Captur.

The 2017 Infiniti QX50 puts handling atop the SUV priority list, but that's not as wrong as it sounds.The Infiniti QX50 has been around, in one form or the other, for a decade. It's still here thanks to strong fundamentals: there are bits and pieces of Q50s and 370Zs under its skin, and that gives it an engaging feel that's still head and shoulders above some its its key rivals.
It returns for its 10th model year in just two forms, as the rear-drive QX50 or as the all-wheel-drive QX50 AWD.

Pros
Sport-sedan handling
Shape's still sleek
A richly appointed cabin
Supportive front seats
Finally, a more usable back seat

Cons
Cargo space behind the second row is small
Engine noise
No paddle shift controls
Even with surround-view cameras, visibility isn't great

The 2017 Infiniti QX50 ranks 10 out of 14 Luxury Compact SUVs. The 2017 Infiniti QX50 has a powerful V6 engine, handles more like an agile car than an SUV, and has one of the lowest base prices in the class. Many class rivals have better mpg ratings and more cargo space, however, and the QX50's design is getting a little stale, both inside and out.

Pros
Powerful engine
Low starting price
Agile handling

Cons
Poor fuel economy
Subpar cargo space
Aging design

By: 
usnews.com

With the 2017 Infiniti QX50, you get a driving experience that's more sport sedan than sport-utility. But the QX50 falls behind in other areas that are likely more important for a luxury crossover SUV.
The QX50's optional 19-inch wheels are now available separately for 2017.

Pros
Powerful standard V6 engine
Responsive handling more akin to a sport sedan than a sport-utility.

Cons
Limited cargo space
That standard V6 engine is pretty thirsty
All-or-nothing option packages mean you'll probably pay for things you don't want
Dated interior controls.
