Remarkable cars of 2018 - afk_renault - 08-06-2018

No, it's not technically Alfa Romeo's first high-riding vehicle—that was a military-oriented four-by the brand sold in the 1950s—but the Stelvio is Alfa Romeo's first chance to succeed in the U.S. since Dustin Hoffman drove a Spider in "The Graduate." The Stelvio is little more than a high-riding Giulia with more cargo space, and that's just fine with us.

2018 BUICK

 first Buick Enclave arrived a decade ago. And it's probably the one vehicle that saved the brand from parent company General Motors' chopping block a few years later during its bankruptcy and bailout. A redesigned Enclave is finally here, and it's everything we could hope for: more luxurious, more refined, and more fuel-efficient. It's a luxury crossover worth coveting.

2018 Chevrolet Equinox

Chevy's compact crossover enters this fight punching hard. Its lineup is all-turbo, including an intriguing, high-mpg turbodiesel that could fill VW's vacuum. Or it may not, since Chevy walls off the safety tech important to crossover buyers in high-buck trim levels only Its Gmc terrain sibbling is a little quieter, but we'd probably save the cash and go for the bowtie

2018 Chevrolet Traverse

Is the Buick Enclave too rich for your blood? The Chevy Traverse delivers nearly all of its inherent goodness, aside from its soft leather and extensive sound deadening, at a more palatable price. That it looks kind of like a softened Chevy Tahoe doesn't hurt, either. Put this one high on your shopping list

2018 Ford Expedition

Gas is cheap and we're drilling again, so who's to fault Ford for trying to relive its 1990s heyday with a redesigned Expedition? Actually, the 2018 Expedition is more than just a rehash of last year's model. It's luxury-grade refined while it retains the smooth ride, strong towing, and commanding view out of its predecessors.

2018 Honda Accord

It's hard for us to overstate just how great the 2018 Honda Accord is . That it's a mid-size sedan with commendable road manners, strong turbos, and a refined, roomy interior is no surprise. That it offers something for everyone is more of a shock. The 2018 Accord can be a frugal commuter, a silent cruiser, or a corner carver, regardless of which options you select. It's one last hurrah for the mid-size sedan, unless Honda does it all again in a few years.

2018 Honda Odyssey
Repeat after us: you don't need a crossover. You don't need a crossover. The 2018 Odyssey makes an excellent family hauler, with its versatile interior, commanding view from the driver's seat, solid safety feature set, and strong V-6 engine. True, we think the Chrysler Pacifica's hideaway seats are tops, but the Odyssey is a stellar runner-up that we'd put in any garage[b][b][Image: 2aOPGd.jpg][/b][/b]
2018 Jaguar E-Pace

The pint-size Jaguar E-Pace is pretty to look at, but it's a lot pricier than some of its direct rivals like the Volvo XC40 and BMW X1. It's a test of just how far Jaguar can stretch its brand, and it may very well pay off as luxury buyers in particular flock away from sedans and into high-riding crossovers. We'll watch this one closely

2018 Lexus RX L

The 2018 Lexus RX isn't new, but the RX L is. It's simple: Lexus stretched its hugely popular RX to give it a third row of seats. It's also an idea as brilliant as it is overdue, especially since it plugs one of the most glaring gaps in the Lexus lineup.

2018 Lıncoln Navigator

It's still a tarted-up Ford Expedition, but the Lincoln Navigator is once again a luxury SUV worth coveting. From its eye-catching looks to an interior that can be as ostentatious as your budget allows, the 2018 Navigator reminds us that it's good to be on top. Moreover, the Navigator is a sign that Ford's beleaguered Lincoln division may finally be poised for the rebound that's been rumored since the Continental lost its suicide-style doors in 1970

2018 Toyota Camry

Popular convention would be to not mess with a good thing. In the Camry's case, it's nearly two decades of sales dominance. Except that's exactly what Toyota did: they made the 2018 Camry far more interesting to look at, inside and out, while focusing on improving driving dynamics. The result isn't the moonshot that the 2018 Accord is, but the latest Camry range is worth a serious look.

2018 Volswagen Atlas

VW's big bruiser is a massive crossover with legitimate room for the entire family, the kids' friends, a few dogs, and maybe the neighbors and their family, too. This roomy, Tennessee-built crossover has some solid virtues, but it needs a more efficient powertrain. It was, after all, intended for a turbodiesel. But, err, about that

2018 Volvo XC60

Take flagship model, leave in dryer too long to create smaller model. It's a recipe most automakers have followed, but few have done it as well as Volvo. The 2018 XC60 is a sublime compact crossover with just the right amount of Scandinavian restraint. That it's thousands cheaper than the BMW X3 and Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class that we're not totally sure are worth their premiums is even better. Now about that missing sock that's still circulating around the dryer
