Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2018 Audi A6 is a conservatively styled, but handsome mid-size luxury sedan. It lacks the bells and whistles others now offers, but holds firm to its foundation as a competent performer.

Pros
Smart interior
Good powertrain options
Uprated V-6
Standard navigation
Great safety record

Cons
Competes with A7 in top trims
Snug rear seat
No alternative powertrains
Interior can be busy

The 2018 Audi A6 should be suffering from diminished appeal. After all, it's been kicking around without a full redesign for six model years now while its prime competitors have been completely redone in the past year. It's old news. Well, that might be true in terms of attracting attention, but in the end, the A6's appeal has in fact diminished little. This well-rounded luxury sedan continues to deliver exactly what shoppers in this segment are seeking: room, features, luxury and performance in abundance.

PROS
Roomy interior finished in high-quality materials
Powerful engines that also achieve good fuel economy
Intuitive technology interface
Well-balanced ride and handling

CONS
Restrained styling verging on anonymous
Doesn't offer Audi's latest tech

The 2018 Kia Cadenza ranked #3 in Large Cars. Currently the Kia Cadenza has a score of 8.7 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 20 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Upscale cabin
Lots of features

Cons
Touch screen unresponsive at times
Below-average trunk space

By:

For 2018, the Cadenza is essentially unchanged. There's only a minor rejiggering of feature content: Namely, the Luxury package now includes a panoramic sunroof and interior LED lighting.

PROS
Well-equipped for the price, especially in the base Premium trim
Vast amount of legroom allows all passengers to stretch out
Generous warranty coverage
Lots of available advanced safety features

CONS
From acceleration to handling, the Cadenza isn't much fun to drive
Trunk is smaller than rivals, and rear seats don't fold down
The ride isn't as composed as in segment leaders
Headroom is a bit tight for tall occupants (especially with sunroof)
