Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2018 Toyota 4Runner has a few different options packages, but otherwise carries over from last year unchanged.Because the value of the 4Runner lies predominantly in its off-road capabilities, we recommend the TRD Off-Road Premium. This trim gives access to important hardware including the locking rear differential and KDSS, the latter of which improves all areas of the 4Runner's skill set.

PROS
Serious off-road capability few other competitors can match
Variety of configurations to suit many buyers and price points
Versatile cargo area, especially with optional slide out

CONS
Tall step-in height makes for ungraceful entry and exit
Lacks many of the latest driver safety aids
Standard V6 is not particularly fuel-efficient
Choppy ride quality compared to more modern crossovers

Mitsubishi has a plan to break out of its current austerity mode, during which the brand’s occasional sparks of edgy design and performance-oriented engineering have remained in a deep slumber. The 2018 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross is the first fruit of that effort, and it’s intended to signal a course correction toward a more compelling lineup.

Pros
Distinctive design,
better interior than the Outlander Sport,
lots of tech for the money.

Cons
Far from quick,
CVT kills driving enjoyment.

The 2018 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross is a compact crossover that aims to bring high-class looks to a mass-market buyer. It works, but not without some compromise.

Pros
Compelling value
Competent engine
Sharp steering
Handsome crossover looks

Cons
Bulky infotainment setup
Lackluster interior
Confused exterior details
Advanced safety reserved for top-tier models

The Eclipse Cross is an all-new model for 2018.The SE S-AWC is the trim level that makes the most sense to us. It packs a good amount of technology and active safety features, plus a handful of minor but useful interior upgrades such as illuminated vanity mirrors and a leather-wrapped steering wheel.

PROS
Provides plenty of standard features
Turbocharged engine delivers peppy performance
Easy-to-use infotainment system

CONS
Top trim-level pricing is similar to better driving compact SUVs
Not much fun to drive around turns
Ride quality is a bit rough
