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:

The 2019 Volkswagen Arteon is a style statement with an added dose of practicality.

Pros
Slippery shape
Expansive cargo room
Good pep
Great warranty

Cons
Questionable value
Dismal fuel economy
Light on driving flair
So-so interior

Billed as the "spiritual successor" to the departed CC sedan, the 2019 Volkswagen Arteon arrives on our shores just in time to witness the demise of its species. We're exaggerating, but the buying public's love affair with the crossover shows no sign of abating anytime soon and we admire VW for staying the course with the Arteon, which is positioned as the brand's flagship vehicle in the States. It's Volkswagen's belief that the Arteon's sleek exterior, curated feature content, and German-built pedigree will appeal to traditional-sedan customers who desire a touch of exclusivity and luxury without drawing too much attention to themselves.
