The 2020 Tesla Model Y is an all-new model.Part of the first Model Y generation introduced for 2020.

Pros
300-mile projected maximum range
Stunning acceleration from the Performance model
Convenient Supercharger network
Cutting-edge technology

Cons
Unreliable delivery and pricing expectations
Reputation for poor build quality
Tiny third-row seats
No Apple CarPlay or Android Auto support

The newest ambitious project from Tesla is the all-electric Model Y compact crossover. Tesla founder and CEO Elon Musk touted a driving range of up to 300 miles and a zero-to-60-mph time of as little as 3.5 seconds when he unveiled the Model Y during a livestreamed event in March. The 2020 Tesla Model Y looks very similar to the compact Model 3 sedan but can be outfitted with a third row of seats for a total seating capacity of seven.

Pros
Peppy electric powertrain,
spacious cargo hold,
cutting-edge technology features.

Cons
Chassis isn't as taut as the four-door Model 3,
fit-and-finish needs polish,
too reliant on the touchscreen for simple vehicle settings.

The 2017 Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class ranks 2 out of 5 Luxury Subcompact SUVs. The 2017 Mercedes-Benz GLA SUV offers compact-car-like agility and fuel economy in an upscale package. However, there’s little passenger and storage space – even for a subcompact – and its ride isn't as cushioned as many of its rivals.

Pros
Powerful engines
Outstanding handling
Lavish interior
Class-leading reliability score

Cons
Poor cargo capacity
Small back seats

By:

The 2017 Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class is a small, luxury compact 'ute that prioritizes "looks" over "feels," or in other words, it's probably perfect for a lot of shoppers.
Mercedes' smallest crossover—if you can call it that—returns this year to challenge our ideas of compact SUVs, performance, and rear seat head room. Offered as a base front-drive GLA250, all-wheel drive GLA250, or top Mercedes-AMG GLA45, the GLA class may follow Mercedes' nomenclature as an SUV, but it's in a class all its own.

Pros
Impressive dynamic driving
Lots of turbo fun
Sporty and small for two
Decent fuel economy
Great options ...

Cons
but they're pricey
$60,000 for a subcompact hatch?
Cramped rear seat

By:

Apple CarPlay and Android Auto functionality is available for both 2017 Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class versions this year. Mercedes says the instrument panel has been mildly redesigned, and the 8-inch display screen is thinner than before. The new AMG Dinamica package adds faux-suede upholstery to the GLA 45's steering wheel and dashboard.

Pros
Sporty handling and performance even in the base model
AMG GLA 45's long list of available technology and safety features.

Cons
Ride quality is firm to the point some might object
Road and wind noise is in abundance
Automatic transmission can operate awkwardly in stop-and-go situations
Less cargo capacity than its rivals.
