The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.3
6.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2018 Fiat 500X comes with more built-in personality than most other small SUVs, though it’s an urban warrior rather than an off-roader. The 2018 Buick Encore does the pint-size crossover thing well, although it lacks some safety tech and gets pricey with options.
