Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

Perhaps one of the most obscure debuts of the Paris Motor Show is the 2017 Ssangyong Rexton, a midsize SUV from a small Korean manufacturer. The vehicle it replaces was a previous generation of the Mercedes-Benz ML, with which Ssangyong had a licensing relationship to build that and an E-Class sedan primarily for consumption on the Korean domestic market.if Ssangyong is looking to grow, the U.S. market is a likely candidate and what better way to enter than through the hot SUV segment.
Offered in 2- and 3-row trim levels, the Rexton will offer seating for up to 7 passengers. While many of the vehicles in its class are relying on unit body construction, the Rexton remains on a more truck-based body-on-frame approach. While it’s expected to be offered mainly with a 2.2-liter diesel engine making 179 horsepower and mated to a 7-speed transmission, it’s also expected to have a newer 2.0-liter direct injection turbocharged gas engine. A new gasoline engine mated to an 8-speed automatic is expected after the vehicle is launched.

The Rexton is a well-priced SUV that has a lot of boot space for the money and can carry seven people.
Reviews are fairly poor though since it’s not good to drive, noisy and has a dull image. It is one of the cheapest ways to move large loads and more people than usual however, so if you’re in that market then it’s worth a look.

Pros
Good off-road
Practical
Long warranty

Cons
Poor ride
Noisy
Outdated

The Rexton’s four-wheel drive system spends most of its life driving the rear wheels only, diverting power to the front when conditions get more slippery. In most of the cars sold in the UK it will be controlled through a Mercedes-sourced seven-speed automatic transmission - but a six-speed manual is likely to be offered on entry-level editions.
The dashboard has a clean look - again, with some cues from the Tivoli - but cross-stitched material panels and Nappa leather add a touch of luxury. The equipment on offer will include dual-zone climate control, a powered rear tailgate that opens automatically when the keyholder has been standing behind it for three seconds, and a new level of safety kit for SsangYong, including nine airbags and rear cross-traffic alert.

The redesigned 2017 Jeep Compass is much improved over its predecessor. It's a good choice if you want a comfortable and affordable crossover SUV that can still handle a dirt road.Jeep produced its previous-generation model for the first part of the model year and then switched over to the fully redesigned Compass. The first one suffers from poor performance, a low-quality interior and a rough ride, among other faults. We don't recommend buying the "old" Compass.
The new Jeep Compass, however, is a much more competitive small crossover. Jeep made the new Compass more comfortable and enjoyable to drive on the street, where it knows that owners will spend most of their time.

Pros
Solid interior space for such a small vehicle
Highly capable off-road for a small crossover
Rugged Jeep styling is unique in the segment

Cons
Weak power delivery; you're always dipping into the throttle
Hard to find a truly comfortable seat position
Previous model's poor performance, ride comfort and refinement

Forget what you knew about the old Jeep Compass; this latest model is thoroughly modern, even if it doesn't exactly move the bar far forward in its segment.In its first generation, it went down in history as one of the most unloved crossovers on the road from day one. But that's the past and, aside from its badge, the Jeep Compass is all-new for 2017.

Likes
Old Compass? Put out to pasture
No more CVT
Trailhawk toughness
Mini Grand Cherokee looks inside and out
Comfortable ride quality and good handling

Dislikes
Priced like a larger crossover
Narrow inside
High cargo area liftover
Mediocre visibility
Could use more power

The Renegade is more Wrangler-focused, with lots of right angles and round headlights, whereas the Compass is clearly taking styling cues from the Grand Cherokee, so it’s more sleek and progressive.Indeed, you could argue the new Compass’s design looks more traditionally “Cherokee” than the current small Cherokee does. Dimensionally, the Compass has been engineered to fill a relatively narrow space in between the Renegade and Cherokee.The new Compass is a global vehicle.

Pros
Crisply styled, off-road capable, nimble handling

Cons
Lethargic transmission response, touchy brakes
