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 Where the A8 falls short is with its outdated infotainment system and small trunk.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Outdated infotainment system with some hard-to-reach controls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 Ford Focus is irony on wheels: it comes in a dizzying range of models, of which the SEL and ST are our picks.

Pros
Sweet ST, schizo RS
High-economy 3-cylinder
Ride quality on non-performance models
Attractive sheet metal
Lots of high-end options

Cons
Convoluted dash
Tiny audio controls on base models
Lots of tire noise
Costs more than some good rivals
Light on safety tech

The 2018 Ford Focus ranked #4 in Compact Cars. Currently the Ford Focus has a score of 8.7 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 89 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Agile and fun to drive
Two potent turbocharged engines available
High predicted reliability rating

Cons
Cramped rear seat

By:

The 2018 Ford Focus is a well-rounded and competent small car. It's available in a variety of flavors, including a no-frills commuter machine, a high-performance hatchback and, yes, even as an EV..The Ford Focus is essentially unchanged for 2018.

PROS
Rides comfortably over bumps
Sporty steering and handling around turns
Interior stays quiet at highway speeds
Lots of upscale and high-tech options

CONS
Advanced driver safety aids available on top Titanium trim only
Underwhelming acceleration, particularly from the 1.0-liter engine.
Tight back seat for adults
