With consumers quickly shifting to SUVs, BMW redesigned its X3 to make it more attractive to buyers who want something more than a premium SUV.

Quick Take: 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport 2.4 SEL AWC

  Quick Take: 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport 2.4 SEL AWC Another face in the crossover crowdWhat was it that prompted me to request the keys to the 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport? Was it my inner contrarian challenging my employer's "No Boring Cars" mantra? Was it my life-long habit of rooting for the underdog? Was it mere morbid curiosity? We may never know, but when I volunteered to write up Mitsu's best-selling SUV, the looks of smoldering jealousy from coworkers who wished they had put their hand up first were conspicuously absent. In fact, I'm pretty sure I heard a snicker or two.

The 2018 Alfa Romeo Stelvio is a brand- new compact-luxury SUV. It will debut in five trims, all with standard all-wheel drive and a 280-horsepower turbocharged 4-cylinder. Forthcoming is the Stelvio Quadrifoglio, a high-performance version with a 505-horsepower twin-turbo V6.

Performance and fuel economy: Alfa Romeo Stelvio with two new engines. In the EMEA area, orders can now be placed for the 180 HP 2.2 Diesel with automatic 8-speed transmission and rear wheel drive , which ensures a thrilling driving experience in true, iconic Alfa Romeo style.

The base model's only engine option will be the four-cylinder turbo, offering 280 horsepower and 306 lb-ft of torque. The transmission is the eight-speed automatic. C&D also says that the RWD versions will be kitted out more cheaply than AWD models, as a posher Ti version will always come standard with AWD. The new base models are likely to bear Q2 badging to differentiate them from the "quattro per quattro" Q4 models.

And, if you're still willing to add a little something to the RWD Stelvio, there will be an available Sport package that offers 19-inch wheels and performance-oriented accessories such as aluminum pedals, painted brake calipers, paddle shifters and more. This does almost negate the price difference between the 2018 and 2019 base models, as it is said to cost $1,800.
