Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2018 Audi RS 3 is a high-performance variant of the A3 and S3 sedans. It is available in a single trim level and is powered by a turbocharged 2.5-liter five-cylinder engine (400 hp, 354 lb-ft). A seven-speed, dual-clutch automatic transmission sends power to all four wheels.

PROS
Potent acceleration and heaps of traction
Well-trimmed cabin
Enough practicality to serve everyday use

CONS
Ride quality might be too firm for casual drivers
Snug back seat and small cargo area

By:

Overall, an excellent car, even considering the high price given the size. It has a well-rounded set of features, and when performance is taken into account, some would even argue that it is good value for money. Definitely well worth a drive!

pros
Excellent power and performance;
Five-cylinder exhaust sound is unique;
Interior fit and finish typical high Audi quality;
Chuckability around tight roads;
Sharp looks both inside and out

Cons
Turbo lag (which may be a pro for some!);
Transmission logic in Comfort mode;
Software bugs in engine and transmission control units;
Lack of electric seat adjustability;
No puddle lights

Pros
Outrageous speed
Fantastic grip
High-quality interior

Cons
Very expensive
Alternatives have bigger boots
Thirsty engine

The 2018 Audi S6 stands with an impressive hand: quality interior, great performance, functional shape. It's possible to find better examples from other cars, but they all cost significantly more.

Pros
Underrated V-8
Well-appointed interior
Sharp 7-speed dual-clutch automatic
Nimble attitude

Cons
Overshadowed by S7
Steering is too light, too quick?
Exterior is too conservative
More than two tons, and feels it too

The 2018 Audi S6 is a car that pampers as well as it performs. On the inside, this midsize luxury sport sedan boasts a richly trimmed cabin fitted with front seats that can keep you perfectly comfortable for hours at a time. Or hit the gas and the S6's 450-horsepower turbocharged V8 will rocket this Audi to 60 mph in just 4 seconds flat.

PROS
Turbocharged V8 provides plenty of smooth, easily accessible power
Roomy interior is finished in top-shelf materials

CONS
Doesn't handle as well as some rival sport sedans

By: 
edmunds.com

Pros
Strong acceleration
Well-appointed interior
Generous list of standard features

Cons
Sluggish steering
Not very engaging to drive
Trunk space is on the small side
