Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2018 Audi A7 is a midsize luxury car with a hatchback cargo area (Audi dubs this body style a "Sportback").The Prestige adds ventilated front seats, passenger lumbar adjustment, a head-up display, a corner view parking camera and power-closing doors

PROS
Hatchback offers more cargo space than a sedan's trunk
V6 engine's strong performance
Stunning styling that hasn't aged a bit

CONS
Firm ride with 20-inch wheels
Hefty price premium over comparable Audi A6
Doesn't offer Audi's latest in-car tech
Rear headroom can be tight for taller passengers

Comfortable interior
Excellent technology
Hatchback utility

Cons
Rear seat a little cramped
Limited steering feedback
Not quite as roomy as its hatchback might suggest

It may be difficult to put a label on the 2018 BMW 6 Series Gran Coupe, but there's no question about the level of performance and luxury it brings to the table.The 640i is powered by a turbocharged 3.0-liter inline-six (315 horsepower and 330 pound-feet of torque) matched to an eight-speed automatic transmission with steering wheel-mounted shift paddles.

PROS
Modern interior is trimmed with excellent materials
Distinctive styling for a sedan of this size
Smooth, effortless power from either engine
Lots of standard features

CONS
Backseat is more cramped than in similar coupe-styled sedans
Not as quick as some rivals, regardless of engine
More expensive than most competitors

One of the ultimate grand-tourers, the BMW 6-Series stands ready to eat up miles, buyers' budgets, and premium unleaded.

Pros
Stunning Gran Coupe
Luxo-barge-lite
Huge range of options
Fantastic powertrains
Even the 640i feels special...

Cons
... as it should for $80,000-plus
Not really a corner carver
Low roofline compromises head room
Watch the price skyrocket
