Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2017 Renault Koleos is a huge step up for the French brand.The launch of the second-generation Renault Koleos medium SUV in Australia is one of the company’s most significant to date. So significant that we are in fact the first market to get the car — not something we’re used to here in our remote corner of the world.
This French rival to the Mazda CX-5, Hyundai Tucson and imminent new Volkswagen Tiguan is poised to become the company’s top-seller here, which is fitting when you consider the continued rapid growth in this corner of the market.
The new Koleos sits on the same proven architecture as the Nissan X-Trail (fruits of the global Renault-Nissan Alliance) and is once again built in Korea as part of Renault’s alliance with Samsung Motors. It’s larger than before, more upmarket and certainly better value.

Pros
Interesting cabin design
Plenty of interior space
Good value
The promise of reasonable ownership costs may surprise you

Cons
Petrol engine and CVT uninspiring, a diesel would be good
Not the rounded dynamic package that class-leaders are

By:

The original Koleos was Renault’ s first crossover ever, and the newest iteration is set to be the brand’s flagship SUV that will compete against the likes of the Mitsubishi Outlander and the Nissan X-Trail, among others. As Renault’s flagship SUV, the Koleos is now larger and offers seating for up to seven. It comes loaded with an automatic four-wheel drive system, new technology, and a decent list of driver assistance systems.
When spy shots of the new Koleos started surfacing, I was a little skeptical that Renault would do right by the model. The original did well in some markets, but poor in others others . Now that we’ve seen the finished product, it’s pretty clear that Renault went all out on its new flagship SUV. It’s filled with technology that will be used and doesn’t have any of the extra crap that nobody ever uses. The interior is upscale and luxurious, and it is sure to be a hit in most markets.

Pros
Updated styling
Space for seven
Up-scale features

Cons
Could be too close to the X-Trail
Engine packages might fall short

The 2017 Jeep Cherokee still antes up considerable trail-riding talent, but other crossover SUVs do a better job of daily driving.
The name is one of the oldest applied to a modern-day SUV, but the 2017 Jeep Cherokee is no Conestoga wagon. It's a thoroughly modern family wagon, recast from its hardcore sport-utility roots into something much broader, more capable in all sorts of conditions.

Pros
Family-sized interior (albeit with no third row)
Daring exterior
Front seat comfort
Quick enough with the base engine
Strong active-safety set

Cons
Exterior styling doesn't feel fully committed-to
Numb steering
Gas mileage okay but not excellent
Transmission woes come and go

The 2017 Jeep Cherokee ranks 13 out of 18 Compact SUVs. The 2017 Jeep Cherokee combines an upscale and spacious cabin with good off-road capability. Although you can find a smoother ride and larger cabin in competitors like the Honda CR-V or Ford Escape, the Cherokee’s off-road capability means it strikes a pretty rare balance in this class.

Pros
Premium-quality cabin
Spacious and comfortable seating
Great off-road capability with 4WD option

Cons
Sluggish base engine
Below-average fuel economy
Small cargo space

By: 
usnews.com

The 2017 Cherokee gets only minor equipment revisions, including standard xenon headlights on every trim but the base Sport. This is also the first full year for the top-of-the-line Overland trim that was introduced in mid-2016.

Pros
Available V6 engine provides smooth and assertive power
Absorbent suspension smooths out rough surfaces
Capable and user-friendly 8.4-inch touchscreen on many models
Trailhawk offers unique off-road capability for a small crossover.

Cons
Sluggish acceleration with four-cylinder engine
Less cargo capacity than other small crossovers.
