Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

If you want the easy-to-drive qualities of Audi's entry-level sedan, the A3, but also desire greater acceleration and handling, shop the 2018 Audi S3. The S3's more powerful engine, performance-oriented tires, sport-tuned suspension and bigger brakes combine to deliver an exhilarating performance without degrading the car's all-around usability.

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

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

The Bentley Flying Spur returns unchanged for 2018.The anything-but-standard Bentley Flying Spur is our choice. The comfort-focused suspension does a better job of gliding down the highway than the sportier S model. We also recommend the W12 engine for the full effect, rather than the V8.

PROS
Strong power from either the V8 or W12 engine
Predictably regal interior
Extensive customization possibility

CONS
Lacking rear-seat extravagance
Dated infotainment and safety systems

By: 
edmunds.com

Pros
Unmistakable interior quality and comfort
Strong acceleration and braking
The new V8 S Black Edition

Cons
Sharp impacts are felt in the cabin
Outdated technology
Needs the 2019 Continental’s redesign
