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

"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

The 2018 Tesla Model S still delivers unequaled battery-electric performance, though its style and safety are beginning to show their age.

Pros
Elegant design
Oh, that acceleration!
Supercharging network still unequaled
Huge touchscreen interface dazzles
Comfortable and quiet

Cons
Cabin remains stark
Top models well into six figures
Continual updates alter features
Rear seat access not the best

By:

The 2018 Tesla Model S ranked #1 in Luxury Large Cars. Currently the Tesla Model S has a score of 9.3 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 37 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Lightning acceleration and adept handling
Outstanding range
Littered with technology
Spacious seats and large cargo hold

Cons
No Apple CarPlay or Android Auto

By:

Until Tesla came out with its Model S, electric vehicles were never thought of as fully viable replacements for gasoline-powered vehicles, and they didn't have much appeal beyond their potential eco-conscious benefits. Today, though, the 2018 Tesla Model S boasts tremendous acceleration, cutting-edge tech, and an electric range that now resembles that of a gasoline car. It's well-suited for just about any luxury vehicle buyer, not just EV converts.

PROS
Electric range is impressive on higher-end models
Wicked quick acceleration across the board
Liftback design affords abundant cargo space
Advanced technology unavailable from other luxury brands

CONS
Small dealer network means few service centers nationwide
Lacks the luxury polish of some similarly priced sedans
