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 2019 Infiniti Q70 is a five-passenger midsize luxury sedan with an excellent available V8 that's otherwise showing its age, and it's outshined by more recent competitors.The big V8 adds a lot of character to the otherwise middling Q70, so the Q70 5.6 Luxe is the trim we'd pick. Unless driving in inclement weather is a common occurrence for you, we'd also forgo all-wheel drive.

Pros
Athletic, with strong acceleration in V8 versions
Large cabin with comfortable seats

Cons
Limited small-item storage in cabin
Ride comfort suffers with the 20-inch wheels
Many driver assistance features are optional
Infotainment interface is dated and clunky to use

By: 
edmunds.com
