Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

As German luxury automakers slice and dice traditional market segments, it's fair to say the 2019 BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe is in a class of one. The 4 Series is essentially a coupe/convertible version of the ubiquitous 3 Series sedan, and the Gran Coupe further complicates the naming scheme by being a four-door variant of the 4 Series.

Pros
Hatchback body style makes it easy to load cargo
Stout performance with either engine
Upscale interior with easy-to-use controls
Well-balanced ride and handling

Cons
Available only with an automatic transmission
Less cargo space than closest hatchback competitors
Heavier and costlier than similar sedan competitors
Less backseat headroom than in the 3 Series sedan

The 2018 Audi RS 3 is a high-performance variant of the A3 and S3 sedans. It is available in a single trim level and is powered by a turbocharged 2.5-liter five-cylinder engine (400 hp, 354 lb-ft). A seven-speed, dual-clutch automatic transmission sends power to all four wheels.

PROS
Potent acceleration and heaps of traction
Well-trimmed cabin
Enough practicality to serve everyday use

CONS
Ride quality might be too firm for casual drivers
Snug back seat and small cargo area

By:

Overall, an excellent car, even considering the high price given the size. It has a well-rounded set of features, and when performance is taken into account, some would even argue that it is good value for money. Definitely well worth a drive!

pros
Excellent power and performance;
Five-cylinder exhaust sound is unique;
Interior fit and finish typical high Audi quality;
Chuckability around tight roads;
Sharp looks both inside and out

Cons
Turbo lag (which may be a pro for some!);
Transmission logic in Comfort mode;
Software bugs in engine and transmission control units;
Lack of electric seat adjustability;
No puddle lights

Pros
Outrageous speed
Fantastic grip
High-quality interior

Cons
Very expensive
Alternatives have bigger boots
Thirsty engine
