Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2018 Toyota Land Cruiser is unchanged.The 2018 Land Cruiser comes fully loaded apart from a rear-seat entertainment system. It's likely something you can skip if you use tablets and other devices to keep your family entertained.

PROS
One of the most off-road-capable SUVs around
Surprisingly comfortable ride and capable handling for a big SUV
Commanding view of the road ahead

CONS
A Toyota badge at a price that matches luxury marques
Poor fuel economy
Second- and third-row seats lack space and versatility

The 2018 Toyota Land Cruiser is a conundrum: it’s way better on-road than its off-road credentials suggest it should be, but that doesn’t mean it’s for everyone.

Pros
Proper off-road cred
Great ride quality
Decadent interior
Dripping with personality and heritage
Strong V-8

Cons
Ponderous steering
Ghastly expensive
The Lexus LX 570 exists, too
Miserable fuel economy
Do you really need all those off-road toys?

The 2018 BMW X4 ranked #10 in Luxury Compact SUVs. Currently the BMW X4 has a score of 8.0 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 19 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros

Cons
Small rear seats
Poor cargo capacity

By:

The 2018 BMW X4 xDrive28i is already a potent little performer and will satisfy the majority of drivers. Almost all of the features from the range-topping M40i are available as options, so you won't be missing much other than the overabundance of power.

PROS
Powerful yet efficient engine choices
Interior quality well represents the luxury class
Ride quality is smooth yet handling is sporty

CONS
Rearward visibility is compromised
Cargo capacity is much smaller than rivals
Limited rear-seat space

By: 
edmunds.com

The 2018 BMW X4 takes today’s trend toward swoopier SUVs and packages it with a roundel up front. It’s entertaining and a looker, but not all that practical.

Pros
Compelling shape
Exciting performance from M40i
Well-equipped at base trim level
Excellent 8-speed automatic

Cons
Pricey at more than $48,000 to start
$2,000 for CarPlay? Really?
Rear seat head room is compromised
Cargo area is oddly shaped
