The 2018 Toyota Highlander Hybrid receives no significant changes.The 2018 Toyota Highlander Hybrid comes with a good amount of standard equipment in the base LE trim. But we recommend upgrading to the midlevel XLE. On top of the standard systems such as forward collision mitigation and lane departure intervention, the XLE gets blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert as well as the upgraded 8.1-inch touchscreen.

PROS
Impressive fuel economy for a three-row crossover
Just-right size for many families
Added peace of mind from standard accident-avoidance tech
Quiet and compliant ride

CONS
Touchscreen and other controls may require an extra-long reach
Third-row seat isn't as roomy as those of many competitors

With warm hatch performance matched to all-wheel drive surety, the Audi Q2 2.0 TFSI quattro is arguably the sweet spot in the German car maker's compact SUV range.

Pros
Quick without being manically so
Adroit handling
Edgy styling
Seamless seven-speed S tronic transmission
Excellent off-road dynamics

Cons
Plenty of road and wind noise
Some cheap elements in the cabin
Pretty cramped second row
Boot space well short of class leaders

By:

The 2018 Audi Q2 2.0 TFSI Quattro has arrived, and it all makes sense. And there have been a couple of extra little tweaks to the Audi Q2 2018 range.
There isn't much major visual differentiation between the newly added 2.0 TFSI Quattro version and the more affordable petrol model aside from this version rolling on 18-inch wheels as opposed to the 17s of the base petrol, and the entry-level model misses out on body-colour mouldings around the wheels, side skirts and bumpers. Both the quattro models look identical to one another.

Pros
Decent levels of equipment
New petrol AWD model is a peach
A fairly charming thing overall

Cons
Limited boot space in quattro models
Back seat isn't massive
Lacks some storage

By: 
carsguide.com.au

The Audi Q2 is a small SUV with a smart interior, plenty of optional high-tech touches and a raised driving position, but the rear seats are quite upright and therefore not particularly comfy.

Pros
Relaxing to drive
Stylish, well-built interior
Great high-tech options

Cons
Back seats a little too upright
Expensive top-spec models
Poor rear visibility
