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

The Mitsubishi ASX doesn’t get the pulse racing, and its size makes it better for inner-urban use than open road touring. Because fuel economy can suffer if the engine is required to work too hard, it’s also better suited to terrain where engine performance is less of an issue.

Pros
Flexible, pragmatic interior
Well-specified equipment list
Goldilocks size for inner-urban use

Cons
Outdated material and build quality
Drivetrain really lacks verve
NVH and wind noise

By: 
motoring.com.au

Pros
Phone integration;
spacious interior;
five-year warranty.

Cons
Tyre noise.

The Mitsubishi ASX is a compact SUV that is, well, a little bit boring – something that matters in a class full of funky rivals such as the Renault Captur, Peugeot 2008 and Honda HR-V.

Pros
Low running costs
Roomy interior
Decent levels of kit

Cons
Not game changing
Not very stylish
Plasticky interior
