Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

Subaru's popular subcompact crossover gains a host of new features for 2020, starting with an auto stop-start system for models equipped with the continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT). Automatic climate control, Subaru's Intelligent Drive (SI-DRIVE) selectable driving modes, and a new collision-detection automatic door-unlock system are also standard across the range. The mid-range Premium model now can be equipped with a six-way power-adjustable driver's seat and keyless entry with push-button start. Limited models get new LED fog lamps and both the Limited and the Hybrid come with rear-seat USB charging ports.

Pros
Rugged styling,
carlike ride and handling,
available plug-in hybrid.

Cons
Mediocre acceleration,
boring interior appearance,
cramped cargo area.

Comfortable ride quality

Cons
Slow acceleration on the highway
Handling isn't as precise as that of some rival cars
Lower EPA mileage numbers compared to typical crossovers

The 2020 Subaru Crosstrek puts safety first, with capability a close second.

Pros
A total-package small crossover
Off-road capable, rugged looks
Standard AWD
Plug-in hybrid
Standard safety tech

Cons
Pokey acceleration
Limited release hybrid
Manual transmission adds nothing
Limited trim not a value

The Ford Focus stands out as the best driver’s car in the class, with handling that truly entertains. It's complemented by a fine ride that almost matches a Volkswagen Golf for comfort and passenger space very nearly on a par with the Skoda Octavia. It's mainly the iffy interior quality and slightly lacklustre performance that mark it down.

Pros
Class-leading handling
Supple ride
Roomy rear seats

Cons
Mediocre performance
Golf is better equipped
Octavia has a much bigger boot

By: 
whatcar.com

Pros
Appealing looks
Value for money
Still great to drive

CONS
No electrified versions
1.0-litre petrol can feel strained
Seating position won't satisfy everyone
