Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2019 Volvo S60 should give the "default" German choices a real run for the money.

Pros
Son of S90 style
Promise of good performance
Sedate interior
Lots of safety gear

Cons
Market has moved toward crossover SUVs
Is it too much like the S90?
Care by Volvo subscription off to a rocky start
Polestar Engineered not on T5, T6

By: 
thecarconnection.com

Fully redesigned for 2019

Pros
Appealing powertrain lineup including a high-performance plug-in hybrid
Long list of standard and available safety equipment

Cons
Interior user interface may be difficult to learn

By:

The WRX might be one of the quickest and most powerful sport compacts available for less than $30,000, but it’s also one of the least civil. A loud cabin, a stiff-legged ride, and a laggy turbocharged engine are some of the WRX’s surlier traits—a legacy of its rally-car roots. Its infotainment system is antiquated, and its interior is drab.

Pros
All-wheel-drive confidence,
powerful turbocharged engine,
great visibility.

Cons
Noisy cabin,
jiggly ride,
no Apple CarPlay or Android Auto.

The 2018 Subaru WRX looks tame compared to its newest rivals. Step on the gas and you’ll be convinced otherwise.

Pros
Captivating performance
Better sound deadening
Good safety scorecard
Bright, large touchscreen for infotainment
Restrained looks compared to others…

Cons
…that border on boring
Advanced safety options are pricey
No hatchback version anymore
Not very fuel-efficient

By: 
thecarconnection.com

The WRX receives a handful of useful changes for 2018, including an updated front-end design, revised suspension and steering tuning, and thicker glass, seals and insulation aimed at better suppressing road noise. Subaru also adds a few new features to its EyeSight safety package.

PROS
In both WRX and WRX STI, acceleration is swift and among best-in-class
Delivers superb handling and steering response on twisting roads
Full-time all-wheel drive enhances traction and performance
Offers several premium safety equipment options

CONS
STI's high-performance suspension makes for a rough ride
Interior quality lags behind competitors
Above-average amounts of wind and road noise
