Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2018 Subaru Crosstrek is all-new for 2018. It rides on a new chassis, gets an upgraded version of the previous engine, and features a more refined cabin design with additional features.

Pros
Precisely tuned suspension delivers sharp handling and a comfortable ride quality
Spacious interior for a hatchback of its size
Offers optional safety features not typically found in the class
High ground clearance for enhanced off-road capability

CONS
Lower EPA mileage numbers compared to other cars in its class
Slow acceleration on the highway

By: 
edmunds.com

The 2018 Subaru Crosstrek ranked #8 in Subcompact SUVs. Currently the Subaru Crosstrek has a score of 7.8 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 27 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Exceptional rear-seat space for the class
Generous cargo room
Quiet and fuel-efficient CVT
Athletic handling

Cons
Slow to accelerate
Terrible gas mileage with manual transmission

By: 
usnews.com

The Crosstrek’s standard all-wheel drive and 8.7 inches of ground clearance set the stage for adventure. Acceleration is unhurried from a 152-hp 2.0-liter flat-four paired with either a six-speed manual or a continuously variable automatic.

Pros
Adventurous aesthetic,
solid road manners,
genuine off-pavement potential.

Cons
Slow and unrefined powertrain,
uninspired interior,
questionable value.

The 2017 Toyota Highlander ranks 3 out of 18 Midsize SUVs. With an unmatched list of standard advanced driver assistance features, the 2017 Toyota Highlander is one of the best values in the midsize SUV class. Its interior is high-end and comfortable, and there’s plenty of cargo space.

Pros
Lots of standard active safety features
Above-average fuel economy
Comfortable and quiet on the highway

Cons
Dull performance and handling
Cramped third-row seat

By: 
usnews.com

The Toyota Highlander gets a stronger, more responsive powertrain for 2017, but the main strengths are the ride quality, the cabin refinement, and the space for eight.
A somewhat more aggressive look, more power, an improved set of safety features, and a new sportier SE model highlight the changes Toyota is ushering in for its spacious crossover utility vehicle, the 2017 Highlander. The SE joins LE, LE Plus, XLE, Limited, and Limited Platinum models. The Highlander Hybrid is now also available in LE and XLE trims, in addition to the carry-over Limited and Limited Platinum.

Pros
Wide range of powertrains
Flexible second row
Easy third-row access
Good connectivity
Cabin quality

Cons
Design is soemwhat bland
Base engine is under powered
Somewhat busy dash design
Hybrid only delivers if you drive gingerly

By:

For 2017, the Highlander receives a number of significant midcycle changes. The styling has been updated, highlighted by a larger, more pronounced grille and redesigned LED taillights. The V6 engine is new, boasting more power and better fuel economy along with an eight-speed transmission and an automatic stop-start system. New feature content includes the Toyota Safety Sense technology suite, which comes standard on every trim level. There's also a new SE trim level that features uniquely sporty styling elements and a retuned suspension for sharper handling.

Pros
Just-right exterior and interior size for many families
Standard high-tech safety features
Strong V6 engine with improved fuel economy
Quiet and compliant ride

Cons
Third-row seat isn't as roomy as those of many competitors
Touchscreen and other controls may require an extra-long reach
Undesirable base four-cylinder engine
