Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

For 2018, the RAV4 gains a new Adventure trim level. It combines the XLE's equipment with the SE's sportier styling elements, then adds a few of its own styling flourishes and a tow package as well as raises ground clearance from 6.1 inches to 6.5. It also gets exclusive access to a new Cold Weather package that adds a variety of heated items. Interestingly, the SE trim level also gains the same extra ground clearance, which seems counter to its sportier, on-road mission.

PROS
One of the largest, most versatile cargo areas in the segment
Advanced safety and driver aids come standard
Rides smoothly in a variety of conditions

CONS
Ho-hum driving experience
Interior has a utilitarian look and feel
Modest acceleration from the only engine

The 2018 Toyota RAV4 has a lot going for it, including a hybrid model, but you’d be wise to cross-shop its rivals as well.

Pros
Roomy, well-packaged interior
Lots of standard safety tech
Wide range of trim levels
Rides well
Thrifty hybrid

Cons
Not all that polished
Adventure is an oddball
Quirky looks
Fuel economy is mid-pack

The 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport is old, crude, slow, and far from fuel-efficient, though it is cheap; buyers can likely do better.

Pros
Low price
Passably attractive lines
Loading people, goods is easy
So about that price…

Cons
Grim interior
Crude, slow powertrains
Low fuel-economy ratings
Active-safety gear missing from most trims

By: 
thecarconnection.com

For 2018, the Mitsubishi Outlander receives updated styling front and rear, minor interior enhancements, and changes said to reduce cabin noise. There are new features this year as well. Every Outlander Sport now has a touchscreen display, and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration is included on most trim levels.

PROS
Well-equipped for the price
Generous warranty coverage surpasses that of many rivals

CONS
Raucous drone while accelerating (especially with 2.0-liter engine)
Transmission is aggravating due to slow responses
Many interior materials look and feel cheap
Ride quality is jarring on bumpy roads
