Expert reviews: 

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:

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

The 2018 Cadillac CT6 has the style and performance to match its German rivals, but is the brand there yet?

Pros
Handsome design
Inexpensive base model
Spacious rear compartment
Capable handling
31-mile plug-in hybrid range

Cons
Firm ride, all the time
Missing a few luxury amenities
Driver's seat won't suit some
No V-8, but who will want a 2.0-liter four?
Can Cadillac market a plug-in hybrid?

The 2018 Cadillac CT6 ranked #4 in Luxury Large Cars. Currently the Cadillac CT6 has a score of 8.4 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 21 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Three powerful engine options
Good fuel economy with base engine
Two rows of spacious seats

Cons
Undersized trunk
Finicky touch screen

By: 
usnews.com

The 2018 Cadillac CT6 can best be described as a full-size luxury sedan, but it's priced like a midsize. If you like the idea of a spacious and upscale luxury sedan with a little Detroit attitude, this Cadillac fits the bill.

PROS
Plenty of rear passenger space for adults
Engaging driving experience for a large luxury sedan
Priced less than many competing sedans

CONS
Lacks the cosseting ride quality offered by competitors
Virtually no unique customizability compared to rivals
No V8 engine offered
