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

The Cadillac ATS remains a highly desirable underdog with its terrific ride and handling and willing powertrains. It's as fun-to-drive as any compact luxury sedan.

Pros
Strong engine choices
Excellent handling
Upscale infotainment
Classy feel inside and out

Cons

Due for a more thorough update

The 2018 Cadillac ATS coupe features the latest generation of the Cadillac User Experience (CUE) tech interface, which promises more intuitive operation and a smartphone-style navigation app. Mechanically, the ATS coupe remains unchanged.

PROS
Takes quick turns and curves with ease, an ace handling machine
Optional manual transmission is rare in this class

CONS
Many interior controls and ergonomics are more clever than functional
Turbo four-cylinder engine is noisy and not that fuel-efficient
The back seat and trunk are small compared to competitors
