Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

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Outdated technology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

By: 
motortrend.com

The 2018 BMW X3 ventures into M territory, but doesn’t lose sight of its SUV duties.

Pros
Nimble, sedan-like handling
Excellent interior space and storage
Great turbo-6 powertrain
Standard all-wheel drive
M40i a blast to drive

Cons
Base 6.5-inch infotainment display
Forward-collision warnings an option
World’s most expensive Apple CarPlay
Off-road? More all-weather

By:

Though it has sporty handling, powerful engines, and roomy seats, the fully redesigned 2018 BMW X3 is only a midpack luxury compact SUV. Its drawbacks include a higher-than-average starting price and fewer standard features than the competition.

Pros
Agile handling
Strong engine lineup
Spacious cargo area and cabin
Premium interior

Cons
Above-average starting price
Minimal standard luxury features
