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

By:

Pros
Strong acceleration
Nimble handling
Well-appointed interior

Cons
Small trunk
Looks too conservative
Clunky start/stop system

The 2018 Jeep Wrangler skips over the on-road part of the driving test, and heads straight for the hills.

Pros
The undisputed off-road champion
Singular style
Smooth and strong V-6
A few concessions to modernity inside

Cons
Rough-and-tumble ride
Poor on-road handling
Expensive high-end editions
Remarkably poor safety scores
Soft tops are fussy to use

The Jeep Wrangler is completely redesigned for 2018. Note that this review covers the new Wrangler. The previous-generation model, the Wrangler JK, is covered separately.

PROS
Unrelentingly capable off-road
Maintains the rugged Jeep character
Increased capability and comfort compared to old models
Extensive customization options from the factory and aftermarket

CONS
Mild towing capability for an otherwise highly capable rig
Less cargo space than some conventional crossovers
Standard V6 engine is a little underwhelming

By: 
edmunds.com

Pros
There are few vehicles more capable off-road than the Wrangler JK. Equipped with removable doors, a removable roof, and a fold-down windshield, the four-wheel-drive Wrangler JK is one of the most fun and proficient ways to explore off the beaten path or to feel the wind in your hair. It’s also hard not to fall for the Wrangler JK’s charming and simple design, which can trace its roots back to the Willys MB Jeep of World War II fame.

Cons
The Wrangler JK’s off-road capability comes at the cost of its on-road manners. Live front and rear axles do the Wrangler JK’s ride quality no favors. The body also rolls precariously in turns, and the stability-control system regularly cuts in to prevent the droptop SUV from actually rolling over. Wind noise is exceptionally loud at highway speeds, and this Jeep drinks gas like it’s at an open bar. The available touchscreen infotainment system also is slow to respond to inputs and suffers from poor ergonomics.
