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

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 BMW M6 lineup loses its iconic coupe, but the four-door Gran Coupe was always the more compelling choice

Pros
Arresting performance
Great handling
High-tech interior
Sexy Gran Coupe

Cons
No more coupe, not that anyone bought it
Hugely expensive
Rivals are compelling, too
Rather plump

By:

Like the M5 on which it's mechanically based, the 2018 BMW M6 Gran Coupe gets the full M division treatment, at least compared to the standard 6 Series Gran Coupe. That includes an immensely powerful turbocharged V8 with 560 horsepower (or an optional 600 hp), an upgraded suspension, stronger brakes and plentiful luxury.

PROS
Engine makes exceptional power
Interior is richly trimmed and well-equipped
Front seats offer impressive support and comfort

CONS
By sedan standards, offers modest headroom and rear-seat legroom
Feels big and heavy around tight turns
Commands significant premium over the M5 on which it's based
