Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

While Audi has only announced updates for the European 2020 e-tron, the company said those changes will eventually make their way to our market. That means the American version will have an updated battery pack that provides more driving range than it currently does. It also means we're getting the e-tron Sportback that features a fastback roofline.

Pros
Remarkably silent on the go,
fancy and functional interior,
serene ride quality.

Cons
Less range than rivals,
less unique than rivals,
limited energy regeneration options.

Pros
Doesn’t look like an electric car,
interior design,
efficiency modes

Cons
Doesn’t look like an electric car,
electric mirrors an acquired taste

The Armada gets a significant makeover for 2021, starting with a squarer front end featuring prominent headlights. The design revisions reach out back, too, with a new bumper and taillights that are connected by a continuous trim piece. There's also a newly available Midnight Edition with blacked-out trim. Inside, Nissan redesigned the center stack and added a larger 12.3-inch touchscreen with wireless Apple CarPlay.

PROS
Serenely quiet and comfy,
smooth,
potent powertrain,
pillowy ride.

CONS
Dreadful fuel economy,
some dated interior elements,
wanders at highway speeds.

The 2021 Nissan Armada is a big, comfortable brute that can tow the boat and haul the family all at once.

PROS
Spacious inside
Lusty V-8
Strong for towing
Good safety features
Value at the base level

CONS
Gas guzzler
Third row for kids only
Gets expensive
Plodding moves
