Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

For those needing the performance of a supercar and the space and comfort of a family SUV, the Audi RS Q8 is quite possibly the perfect solution.

Pros
Stunning performance
Glorious engine sound
Superb ride
Interior comfort and space

Cons
48V 'mild hybrid' not a hybrid
Steering lacks a little feel
2.3 tonnes is a lot of weight to hustle through corners

The RS Q8 is a new addition to the Q8 lineup for 2020.
Audi is going after the AMGs and BMW Ms of the world with the new RS version of its Q8 mid-size SUV. The 2020 Audi RS Q8 comes standard with a twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V-8 engine making 591 horsepower and 590 lb-ft of torque, with standard Quattro all-wheel drive to put all that power to the ground and an upgraded suspension and brakes to ensure it handles and stops as well as it goes. It looks a lot more aggressive than the standard Q8, too, thanks to 22-inch wheels, a wider body, and a rear spoiler. It will go on sale in the U.S. sometime in 2020.

2020 Audi RS Q8 will undoubtedly be a huge hit in the segment.With Lamborghini-esque power under the hood and the very latest Audi refinement in the cabin, it brings all the good stuff needed to run against the top competitors from BMW, Mercedes-Benz, and Porsche.

Pros
More aggressive styling
Lamborghini engine under the hood
Impressively quick for a big SUV

Cons
How will it ride compared to the Merc and Bimmer?
Competition isn’t slowing down anytime soon
Might steal a few sales from the Lambo

Cadillac lightly updated the Escalade for 2020 with only a smattering of changes. Along with a new Dark Mocha metallic paint color, which costs extra, the lineup adds a new appearance package called the Sport Edition. The get-up is only available in Red Passion, Satin Steel, and Black Rave. However, that unlocks gloss-black trim to the front end, around the side windows, and on the rear. While we've glimpsed the interior of the next-gen model and spied a prototype testing, Cadillac hasn't officially revealed the upcoming 2021 Escalade.

Pros
Everyone recognizes an Escalade, lots of standard luxuries, notable tow ratings.

Cons
Rides like less-refined SUVs, interior isn't truly luxurious, meager fuel-economy estimates.

By: 
caranddriver.com

The 2020 Cadillac Escalade comes with rear wheel drive, and four wheel drive. Available transmissions include: 10-speed shiftable automatic.Last year's dual-screen rear entertainment system has been discontinued

PROS
Strong V8 engine is never at a loss for power
Robust towing capacity
Cabin remains quiet regardless of road conditions

CONS
Less refined ride and seat comfort than other luxury SUVs
Low handling limits and heavy steering
High, uneven cargo floor makes loading objects difficult

By:

The 2020 Cadillac Escalade is ripe for a redesign, so check out rivals before making a call.

Pros
In-your-face design
V-8 thrust
Comfortable interior
Good towing ability

Cons
Ride not as composed as rivals
Curiously cramped for passengers
So, so thirsty
Too in-your-face for most
