Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

A sports car with a more practical body, the 2018 Cadillac ATS-V represents American engineering at its very best.

Pros
Strong twin-turbo V-6
Great transmissions
Ride/handling balance
Muscular style

Cons
No automatic emergency braking
No AWD
Interior quite cramped

By:

The 2018 Cadillac ATS-V features the latest generation of the Cadillac User Experience (CUE) tech interface, which promises more intuitive operation and a smartphone-style navigation app. Mechanically, the ATS-V remains unchanged.

PROS
Handles like a sports car without the punishing ride discomfort
Turbo V6 engine generates abundant power for quick acceleration
Brakes are as impressive and strong as the power and handling
The ATS-V is a true driver's car, built to perform on road or track

CONS
Many interior controls and ergonomics are more clever than functional
The back seat and trunk are small compared to similar competitors

By: 
edmunds.com

Pros
Excellent handling
Smooth power with turbo four-cylinder engine
Respectable gas mileage
Inventive cabin materials
Sharp styling

Cons
Disappointing manual transmission
Snug interior
Some poorly fitted cabin materials
Tiny trunk

By:

The S4’s understated looks won’t snap necks on the street, but its 354-hp turbo 3.0-liter V-6 and all-wheel-drive traction can realign your spine on demand. Sorry stick-shift purists, an eight-speed automatic is the sole gearbox. With standard massaging front seats and premium interior materials, the sophisticated sedan also pampers passengers.

Pros
Solid performance,
stealthy road presence,
refined and high-tech cabin.

Cons
Short on engagement behind the wheel,
fierce competitors in the same showroom.

By: 
caranddriver.com

The 2018 Audi S4 balances perfectly performance with luxury in a package that's both practical and sharp. Hardly a recipe for excitement, but one that touches all the bases.

Pros
Sharp exterior
Comfortable in front or back
Plentiful power from V-6
Comfortable ride
Good standard equipement

Cons
Transmission seems hesitant
Finicky optional sport steering
Drama-less?
Missing S5's power dome

By: 
thecarconnection.com

Pros
Strong acceleration
Nimble handling
Well-appointed interior

Cons
Small trunk
Looks too conservative
Clunky start/stop system
