The 2018 Audi A4 and Allroad are sophisticated luxury cars with few glaring faults—and lots of commendable features, particularly the high-tech Virtual Cockpit.

Pros
Terrific powertrain
Comfortable interior
Dazzling high-tech features
Versatile Allroad wagon
Great safety features

Cons
Styling a little derivative
Price skyrockets with options
Allroad coulda, shoulda been a regular wagon
Some rivals sharper to drive

A new Black Optic Plus package is available, which includes 18-inch wheels, red brake calipers and interior stitching, gloss black interior and exterior body pieces, as well as a flat-bottom steering wheel. Audi has also added more of the A4's features as standard equipment this year.

PROS
Cabin looks cool and is impeccably constructed
Cutting-edge and easy-to-use safety and technology features
Backseat is spacious enough for adults
Turbocharged engine provides quick acceleration

CONS
Lack of feedback from steering limits driver involvement
Some initial hesitation from transmission when accelerating

The weapons-grade M5 is a powerful piece of German artillery from BMW’s iconic M division. It sports a twin-turbo 4.4-liter V-8 with 600 hp and 553 lb-ft of torque. The M5 faithful will lament the lost manual gearbox and unfamiliar all-wheel-drive system, but this Bimmer has a high-tech drivetrain that can disconnect the front wheels for pure rear-drive personality.

Pros
Astounding acceleration,
rediscovered involvement that doesn’t negatively affect refinement and luxury.

Cons
Stiff ride in Sport mode,
fake engine soundtrack remains,
the stick shift is dead.

The 2018 BMW M5 is equal parts performance monster and luxury cruiser.

Pros
Crazy power
Sharp handling
Spacious interior
Wonderful engine noises
Grip of AWD

Cons
No more manual tranmission
Six-figure price
Still pretty heavy

The 2018 BMW M5 is a four-door, five-seat sedan. It comes in only one primary configuration, and is equipped with a 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8 engine that produces 600 horsepower and 553 pound-feet of torque. The engine is mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission that sends the power to all four wheels.

PROS
Sharper handling from revised suspension
Boffo V8's prodigious thrust
All-wheel drive increases performance capability
Premium cabin packed with features

CONS
Daunting number of powertrain and suspension settings
Stiff on bumpy roads, even in Comfort mode
