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:

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: 
edmunds.com

"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

Lexus ES 300h Sedan models are available with a 2.5 L-liter hybrid engine, with output up to 215 hp, depending on engine type. The 2019 Lexus ES 300h Sedan comes with front wheel drive. Available transmissions include: continuously variable-speed automatic.

Pros
Excellent ride quality and quiet cabin
Good fuel economy for the size and power
Comfortable and mostly upscale interior for the price
Dramatically improved technology compared to previous generation

Cons
A few interior plastics feel thin and cheap
Efficiency-first transmission doesn't match the F-Sport's character
Some controls require using the infotainment interface
Finicky infotainment interface

By:
