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Outdated technology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:

The 2018 Mercedes-Benz continues to push the envelope for comfort. safety, and autonomous driving aids, while improving upon its effortless power and dignified road manners.

Pros
Forceful, smooth powertrains
A true first-class seating experience

Cons

Pricey

By:

The 2018 S-Class has a slightly updated look thanks to a restyling of the headlights, grille, and front and rear bumpers. Inside, there's an updated COMAND infotainment system, a standard wireless charging pad, and a new Energizing Comfort system that links various car features together to simultaneously pamper occupants.

PROS
Ample power with any engine choice
Opulent interior with plenty of customization options
A smooth ride no matter what the road surface
Silent cabin that insulates occupants from the outside world

CONS
Some driver assistance options have questionable value
Not as engaging to drive as some rivals
