Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The S4’s understated looks won’t snap necks on the street, but its 354-hp turbo 3.0-liter V-6 and all-wheel-drive traction can realign your spine on demand. Sorry stick-shift purists, an eight-speed automatic is the sole gearbox. With standard massaging front seats and premium interior materials, the sophisticated sedan also pampers passengers.

Pros
Solid performance,
stealthy road presence,
refined and high-tech cabin.

Cons
Short on engagement behind the wheel,
fierce competitors in the same showroom.

The 2018 Audi S4 balances perfectly performance with luxury in a package that's both practical and sharp. Hardly a recipe for excitement, but one that touches all the bases.

Pros
Sharp exterior
Comfortable in front or back
Plentiful power from V-6
Comfortable ride
Good standard equipement

Cons
Transmission seems hesitant
Finicky optional sport steering
Drama-less?
Missing S5's power dome

Pros
Strong acceleration
Nimble handling
Well-appointed interior

Cons
Small trunk
Looks too conservative
Clunky start/stop system

The Cadillac ATS remains a highly desirable underdog with its terrific ride and handling and willing powertrains. It's as fun-to-drive as any compact luxury sedan.

Pros
Strong engine choices
Excellent handling
Upscale infotainment
Classy feel inside and out

Cons
Cramped back seat and trunk
Pricey with options
Due for a more thorough update

By: 
thecarconnection.com

The 2018 Cadillac ATS coupe features the latest generation of the Cadillac User Experience (CUE) tech interface, which promises more intuitive operation and a smartphone-style navigation app. Mechanically, the ATS coupe remains unchanged.

PROS
Takes quick turns and curves with ease, an ace handling machine
Optional manual transmission is rare in this class

CONS
Many interior controls and ergonomics are more clever than functional
Turbo four-cylinder engine is noisy and not that fuel-efficient
The back seat and trunk are small compared to competitors
