Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The Audi S3 carries over into 2019 without significant changes.

PROS
Powerful turbocharged four-cylinder engine
Upscale interior that looks and feels expensive
Precise handling that makes it a joy to drive on twisty roads
Standard all-wheel drive for enhanced traction

CONS
Small trunk won't fit much more than a couple of small suitcases
Adults will feel cramped in the back seat
No manual transmission option

The 2018 Audi S3 is a blast to drive, but it suffers from a tiny rear seat and the Volkswagen Golf R offers the same performance with more room for less.

Pros
Tremendous performance bang for buck
Great powertrain
High-end LTE connectivity
Svelte shape

Cons
Tiny rear seat
No manual transmission
Gets pricey with options

By:

Rearview camera, revised infotainment system and 10-inch touchscreen now come standard.Voice command functionality added to navigation system.Two new limited-edition trims: 300 Sport and Landmark

Pros
Exhilarating speed and acceleration from a V6 engine
Impressive fuel economy with optional diesel engine
Exhibits sharp handling and steering performance around turns

Cons
Quality of interior materials and assembly doesn't stack up to rivals
Back seat is relatively cramped
Engine auto stop-start system is abrupt and unrefined

By:

The 2019 Jaguar XE compact luxury sedan reminds us of the halcyon days of small four-door luxury cars.

Pros
Sharp handling
Plentiful powertrain options
Smooth ride
Generous standard touchscreen...

Cons
…but Apple CarPlay costs more
Styling is getting a little stale
Cramped rear seat
Will anyone notice the XE anymore?
