Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2019 Volvo XC40 ranked #1 in Luxury Subcompact SUVs. Currently the Volvo XC40 has a score of 9.1 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 15 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Powerful engine
Smooth ride and nimble handling
Posh interior
Lengthy features list

Cons
Below-average cargo capacity

By: 
usnews.com

The 2019 Volvo XC40 is a compact luxury crossover with seating for five. Two trim levels are available: the Momentum and the R-Design. Every XC40 comes loaded with luxury and safety features, including LED headlights, leather upholstery, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, lane keeping assist, and forward collision warning and mitigation. Upgrading to the R-Design doesn't cost much more and adds exterior styling enhancements (a black roof and black window surrounds, among others), larger wheels and more luxury features. Each is also available with several available features packages and stand-alone options.

PROS
Pleasing interior layout with premium materials
Clever small-item storage and cargo solutions
Plenty of standard and available safety features

CONS
Cargo area is small for the class
Steep learning curve for touchscreen interface
Rear bench seat isn't comfortable for tall passengers

The 2019 Volvo XC40 upends tradition—and traditional style—in mostly acceptable ways, and kicks off the car-subscription era with a stylish bang.

Pros
Clever interior features
Competent turbo-4 in T5 trims
Smooth 8-speed automatic
World-beating subscription model
Smart 9.0-inch touchscreen as standard

Cons
Exterior can get funky—and not the good kind
Frustrating shift knob
A Swedish car with extra-cost heated seats?
Rear bench is best for two
Will a Netflix car for broadcast buyers work?

The 2018 Audi A3 ranked #13 in Luxury Small Cars. Currently the Audi A3 has a score of 8.1 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 36 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Lively acceleration, especially with upgraded engines
Dynamic handling balanced with a smooth ride
High-tech infotainment system and available virtual cockpit
Spacious front seats

Cons
Small back seat
Limited cargo space in all-wheel-drive, hybrid, and convertible models

By: 
usnews.com

The 2018 Audi A3 is a well-equipped entry-level luxury sedan with style, performance, and content that make it a logical stepping stone for Volkswagen Golf and GTI buyers.

Pros
Audi Virtual Cockpit
Well-equipped for $40,000
Standard automatic emergency braking
Potent 2.0-liter turbo
Available in three body styles

Cons
Tiny backseat/trunk
Best safety equipment limited to Prestige
Cute looks may limit appeal

By: 
thecarconnection.com

For 2018, the A3 receives only minor changes to equipment availability. Two USB ports and heated front seats are now standard on all A3s, and blind-spot monitoring is standard on the Premium Plus trim levels.

PROS
Good balance of a comfortable ride and sporty handling
Strong acceleration from the turbocharged engine
Refined and stylish cabin

CONS
Limited backseat space
Small trunk, especially with all-wheel drive
