Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2018 BMW M3 Is a sport sedan icon that offers track-ready performance and relatively comfortable seating for four, but it is losing its lead to a group of hungry contenders.

Pros
Superlative performance
Four (relatively) useful seats
Menacing looks
Available carbon ceramic brakes are great...

Cons
...but very expensive
Everything costs more, unless you like white and black cloth
Not fuel efficient
A somewhat digital feel

By: 
thecarconnection.com

What we really love about the M3, though, is that it retains its civility in spite of the performance upgrades. The ride quality remains comfortable thanks to adaptive dampers, the seats are supportive yet comfortable enough for long road trips, and the back seat and trunk are spacious. While there are higher-performing competitors, and more luxurious ones, few blend both traits with the fluidity of the 2018 BMW M3.

PROS
Agile handling without a penalizing ride quality
Upscale, well-equipped interior with room for four adults
Powerful brakes

CONS
Steering is less lively than in competitors
Other sport sedans sound better, go faster

By:

"The BMW M3 is a legendary name among supersaloons, but while the latest version is good, its rivals have caught up"

PROS
Practical four-door body
Aggressive looks
Fun to drive

CONS
Pricey to buy and run
No longer sounds as exciting
Some rivals are better to drive

By:

Revised exterior styling.Larger touchscreen with a new infotainment system.More powerful four-cylinder engine.

PROS
Quiet, comfortable cabin features top-notch interior craftsmanship
Standard all-wheel drive
Wide array of technology options

CONS
Limited space for luggage behind rear seats

By: 
edmunds.com

The 2021 Audi Q5 crossover puts a new face on a best-selling formula that doesn’t show signs of getting old.

PROS
Chiseled looks
Great base engine…
…compelling performance engine too
Good standard safety features
Good touchscreen

CONS
Interior is a little bland
Plug-in hybrid fizzled for us
Not exactly revolutionary
Gets expensive in a hurry
