Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The Bentley Mulsanne is unchanged for 2018.Unless you're regularly shuttling NBA players, there's not much need for the extended-wheelbase version. The extra $100,000 could be put to good use on the base Mulsanne by adding the Mulliner, Comfort and Entertainment specifications.

PROS

Ride quality best described as stately
Authoritative thrust and acceleration
Deeply extensive customization options

CONS
Equally high-cost options
High cost of entry, even compared to some rivals

The midsize luxury sedan segment is packed with great choices. To succeed, the 2018 Cadillac CTS can't just copy the more popular German or Japanese models. Instead, Cadillac has focused on giving buyers unmistakable design, sporty driving characteristics and modern in-car technology.

PROS
All versions have precise handling
V-Sport engine offers outstanding acceleration

CONS
Rear seat room is smaller than for some competitors
Touch panel center console controls are distracting
Base engine lacks refinement
