Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The weapons-grade M5 is a powerful piece of German artillery from BMW’s iconic M division. It sports a twin-turbo 4.4-liter V-8 with 600 hp and 553 lb-ft of torque. The M5 faithful will lament the lost manual gearbox and unfamiliar all-wheel-drive system, but this Bimmer has a high-tech drivetrain that can disconnect the front wheels for pure rear-drive personality.

Pros
Astounding acceleration,
rediscovered involvement that doesn’t negatively affect refinement and luxury.

Cons
Stiff ride in Sport mode,
fake engine soundtrack remains,
the stick shift is dead.

The 2018 BMW M5 is equal parts performance monster and luxury cruiser.

Pros
Crazy power
Sharp handling
Spacious interior
Wonderful engine noises
Grip of AWD

Cons
No more manual tranmission
Six-figure price
Still pretty heavy

The 2018 BMW M5 is a four-door, five-seat sedan. It comes in only one primary configuration, and is equipped with a 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8 engine that produces 600 horsepower and 553 pound-feet of torque. The engine is mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission that sends the power to all four wheels.

PROS
Sharper handling from revised suspension
Boffo V8's prodigious thrust
All-wheel drive increases performance capability
Premium cabin packed with features

CONS
Daunting number of powertrain and suspension settings
Stiff on bumpy roads, even in Comfort mode

If you want the easy-to-drive qualities of Audi's entry-level sedan, the A3, but also desire greater acceleration and handling, shop the 2018 Audi S3. The S3's more powerful engine, performance-oriented tires, sport-tuned suspension and bigger brakes combine to deliver an exhilarating performance without degrading the car's all-around usability.

PROS
Powerful turbocharged four-cylinder engine
Upscale interior that looks and feels expensive
Precise handling that makes it a joy to drive on twisty roads
Standard all-wheel drive for enhanced traction

CONS
No manual transmission option
Adults will feel cramped in the back seat
Small trunk won't fit much more than a couple small suitcases

By:

The 2018 Audi S3 is a blast to drive, but it suffers from a tiny rear seat and the Volkswagen Golf R offers the same performance with more room for less.

Pros
Tremendous performance bang for buck
Great powertrain
High-end LTE connectivity
Svelte shape

Cons
Tiny rear seat
No manual transmission
Gets pricey with options
