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

The 2018 Audi S8 is a speed machine that's the ultimate sleeper. Spot one and stare—it'll likely be gone just as quickly.

Pros
Blitzing acceleration
Opulent interior
Superlative handling
Intoxicating performance...
...but it settles down easily

Cons
Not much to look at in the inside
No self-driving tech
No changes for 2018

The 2018 Audi S8 is a full-size, high-performance luxury sedan that is available only in Plus trim. It employs a turbocharged 4.0-liter V8 (605 horsepower, 517 pound-feet of torque) that is connected to an eight-speed automatic transmission. All-wheel drive is standard.

PROS
Standard turbocharged V8 provides immense power
All-wheel drive ensures rapid acceleration
Clean design and high-quality materials throughout the cabin
Drives and handles like a much smaller sedan

CONS
Not as much trunk space as you might expect for a car of its size
Standard music interface isn't as versatile as a USB port
