Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2018 Audi A8 ranks well among super luxury cars, thanks to its athletic performance and sumptuous interior. Where the A8 falls short is with its outdated infotainment system and small trunk.

Pros
Very comfortable seats and loads of rear-seat legroom
Refined, quiet interior
Powerful, fuel-efficient base engine

Cons
Tiny trunk for a car this size
Outdated infotainment system with some hard-to-reach controls

The 2018 Audi A8 is a luxurious full-size new car that's decidedly old school. It's comfortable and quiet, but lacking new self-driving features.

Pros
Opulent interior
Standard all-wheel drive
Beautiful executive trims for rear seats
Big V-8 is fast
Long wheelbase will please a crowd

Cons
Conservative exterior
Lacking self-driving tech
V-8 is a pricey upgrade

By:

Overall, though, the 2018 A8 gives up little in terms of comfort, luxury and performance. The 4.0T engine, a 450-horsepower turbocharged V8, is of special note for its ability to sprint from zero to 60 mph in about 4 seconds while matching the 22 mpg combined of the standard V6.

PROS
Impeccably crafted cabin
Engines provide plenty of power with decent efficiency
Responsive steering and cornering for a big sedan
All-wheel drive is standard

CONS
Relatively small trunk
Lacks the latest tech offered by rivals and newer Audis

The 2018 Chevrolet Impala ranked #6 in Large Cars. Currently the Chevrolet Impala has a score of 8.5 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 41 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Comfortable ride
Powerful available V6 engine
Intuitive infotainment system
Spacious seats and trunk

Cons
Underpowered base engine

By:

The 2018 Chevrolet Impala adds better base equipment this year for good value among full-sizers.

Pros
Sharp exterior
Better base infotainment
Quality ride
Good interior room

Cons
No hybrid powertrain
Interior is too busy
Back seat head room may bother some
20-inch optional tires are too rough

By: 
thecarconnection.com

As you'd expect from a large domestic sedan, the 2018 Chevrolet Impala has a smooth ride quality, a spacious interior with plenty of room for rear-seat passengers, and a trunk that's one of the largest available in any sedan.

PROS
Smooth, quiet ride
Spacious rear seat and trunk
Sleek cabin with lots of technology upgrades
Capable optional V6

CONS
Less handling prowess than its main rivals
Thick roof pillars hamper visibility
Some interior surfaces feel cheap
Underwhelming performance and economy from the standard four-cylinder
