Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

Although a lot of car shoppers are gravitating more toward crossovers these days, luxury sedans remain essential vehicles for many manufacturers. The 2019 Cadillac CTS is indicative of that, and it features traits Cadillac wants to be known for: unmistakable design, sporty driving characteristics and modern in-car technology.

Pros

V-Sport engine offers outstanding acceleration

Cons
Overly firm ride quality on some versions
Rear-seat room is smaller than some competitors'
Touch-panel center console controls are distracting
Base engine lacks refinement

The 2019 Audi A4 is hiding in plain sight as one of the automaker’s most complete and well-rounded cars.

Pros
Good turbo-4 engine
Sharp handling
Standard automatic emergency braking
Great tech
Crisp styling...

Cons
...but it may be too conservative
Top trims are pricey
Fuel economy hit for AWD
CarPlay through a rotary knob is finicky

By: 
thecarconnection.com

The efficient Ultra trim is gone, but its engine is now standard on all trims.The manual transmission is no longer available.Revised trim level names.Minor adjustments to feature availability.The 2019 Audi A4 doesn't change much and remains at the top of its game. But in typical fashion, there's a challenger on the horizon, and it's a familiar foe: the BMW 3 Series, which gets a thorough overhaul this year.

Pros
Cabin looks cool and is impeccably constructed
Advanced and easy-to-use safety and technology features
Back seat is spacious enough for adults
Turbocharged engine provides quick acceleration in the A4 45 TFSI

Cons
Some initial hesitation from transmission when accelerating
Lack of feedback from steering limits driver involvement
