Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

With their up-for-anything personality, easy-to-park size and sensible appetite for fuel, compact crossovers are some of the most popular vehicles on the road. Versatility is their greatest asset, as you can easily fill them with car seats, groceries, sports equipment or the latest spoils from an antiquing trip and be on your merry way. Among these practical SUVs, the Toyota RAV4 has long been a favorite of savvy shoppers of all ages and tastes.
....
All things considered, the 2015 Toyota RAV4 is not overwhelmingly strong in any one area, but it shines as a solid, well-rounded entry in a very competitive segment. As such, the RAV4 should easily meet the needs of most shoppers.

pros
Roomy interior for people and cargo
Strikes a good balance between ride comfort and sure-footed handling.

cons
No engine upgrade option
Usefulness of available Entune smartphone features is diminished by cumbersome setup process

Mediocre four-cylinder power undercuts the RAV4's solid steering and ride
...
Interior space is fine, but the RAV4's rear seat is flat, and there's an ample supply of rubbery trim in base versions
...
The RAV4's crash scores are now merely par, in a class with some high standards.
...
The RAV4 makes the most sense in value-laden XLE and LE trim levels
...

Pros
Clean styling
Responsive six-speed automatic
Standard rear view camera and Bluetooth
AWD that works well on the road

cons
No higher-output engine option
No third-row seat

The 2017 RAV4 faces stiff competition in the compact SUV class. It trails several rivals in terms of style and performance, but it has impressive safety features in all trims and one of the most spacious cabins in its class
It boasts a generous list of standard features, including more safety features than most in the class
The RAV4 is a reliable family hauler that comes with a generous list of features, with a particular focus on safety to keep your mind at ease when carting your family around
you may find rival SUVs at lower prices with nicer interiors, but they may not have the long list of standard features or near top-of-the-class cargo space that the RAV4 does.

Pros

The 2017 Toyota RAV4 ups the ante in the fiercely competitive compact SUV class by including advanced safety features for every trim level. Once you factor in the RAV4 reputation for reliability this car link crossover is definitely worth your consideration...Edmund

"Despite the sea of competitors swimming in the compact-SUV pool, the 2017 Toyota RAV4 remains the gold medal champ. The RAV4 succeeds on so many levels because it doesn't try to be too many things. so even well-equipped models remain within reach of the average buyer." -- Kelley Blue Book

Cons
There's certainly nothing wrong with the RAV4 as a responsible family vehicle, but there's nothing so right about it that it's an object of desire." -- Consumer Guide (2015)

The 2015 Porsche Macan is an all-new compact luxury crossover SUV.
Just like the Cayenne before it, the 2015 Porsche Macan should be a hit with luxury crossover shoppers, as it offers similar performance in a smaller, sportier package.

Given the great success Porsche has had with its midsize Cayenne crossover SUV, it was just a matter of time before the company expanded the family with a compact crossover offering. But just because it's smaller and less expensive doesn't mean the 2015 Porsche Macan is any less worthy of that iconic crest-shaped hood emblem. Make no mistake, the new Macan comes packed with the speed, handling and engaging driving character one would rightfully expect from the maker of the 911 and Cayenne.

Although it shares some components with the 2015 Audi Q5, the 2015 Porsche Macan (pronounced "Ma-cahn") has its own engines, suspension design and, of course, styling. Furthermore, Porsche has engineered it to drive more like a rear-wheel-drive performance car than most premium-brand crossovers. The Macan's standard all-wheel-drive system normally directs most of the engine's power to the rear wheels, and that power is only redirected to the front wheels when needed to maintain traction.

Pros
Spirited performance even in base trim
Athletic and engaging to drive
Comfortable and quiet ride
Highly customizable.
cons

Cons
Expensive for its class
Less rear seat/cargo space than some rivals

Without doubt, the Porsche Macan is the most complete high-performance SUV on the planet right now

To hail the Porsche Macan Turbo as the new class leader in the mid-size luxury SUV segment simply isn’t enough - this is a serious example of all-wheel-drive mastery from Stuttgart that properly smashes the ball out of the park.

Not only does it offer the most driver-focussed dynamics ever delivered in an SUV, it does so without compromising any of the key features of today’s most popular family haulers.

Visually, you’ll be hard pressed picking the range-topping Turbo from its less-expensive Porsche Macan siblings, at least beyond the badging - subtlety is the name of game here.

That’s not to say that the Macan, even the even the entry-level Macan S, isn’t a superb looker. In my opinion, it’s got the most contemporary and most complete styling of any luxury SUV on the market today, including the popular Range Rover Evoque.

Pros
Great styling
Superb all-round performance and handling
Silk smooth and fast shifting dual-clutch transmission
Brilliant ride
Beautifully built and engineered

Cons
The exhaust note doesn't live up to the Macan Turbo's ballistic performance
Can be thirsty when you're pushing hard

If having the ultimate is what matters, then the Porsche Macan Turbo is the model for you. It combining the image, comfort and practicality of a high-riding SUV with driving dynamics most sports cars would kill for, plus there's a high-quality finish, plenty of pace and on-road prowess. But, it's worth considering whether you really need it. The standard Macan S with the Sport Chrono pack and the PASM active suspension fitted will feel almost identical from behind the wheel, but you're also saving a lot of cash in the process, and you'll still end up with the best-handling compact SUV on the road.

The first thing that strikes you about the Macan’s styling is its low nose. For an SUV this is unusual, and although the edge of the bonnet still stands quite tall, the sleek shape and clever visual tricks – such as the dark insert at the bottom of the bumper – mean Porsche’s mid-size SUV cuts a sharp figure.

Step things up and select Sport or Sport Plus modes and the Macan’s chassis tenses up. The car feels more alert and changes direction quicker, and this extra response doesn’t hurt ride quality too much. Porsche’s Torque Vectoring system gives crisp turn-in to corners, and when you push the accelerator hard on the way out of a bend you can feel the four-wheel-drive system shuffling power to the back wheels to deliver that rear-biased sports car feel.

When you buy a two-tonne SUV, conventional wisdom says you sacrifice performance, handling and any semblance of sportiness in favour of more prosaic virtues such as interior space, versatility, comfort, all-road capability and, of course, the requisite presence to cut off other drivers in traffic.

In theory it is impossible to make a big, heavy SUV drive like a sports car, precisely because big and heavy are powerful handbrakes on the basic physics of agile, responsive dynamics. Until now, that has been a universal truth.

Today, however, we present a breakthrough that should lead to a re-examination of the laws of motion. It's the Porsche Macan Turbo, a two-tonne SUV that goes, steers and stops like a pure-bred performance machine.

Pros
Great engine note
Fantastic drive experience
Sharp handeling

Cons
Restricted head and leg room
Expensive options
