The 2018 Cadillac CTS-V scorches the earth, and leaves the E63 and RS7 with some burn marks.

Pros
Shocking acceleration
Beautifully composed at speed
Lively, connected steering
Brilliantly balanced

Cons
Brash looks aren’t for everyone
Poor IIHS crash-test scores
Back seat lacks rivals’ space

PROS
One of the most powerful sedans on the road
Far cheaper than comparably powered performance sedans

Less luxurious cabin than those of competitors

The 2018 Lexus LS 500 is redesigned and all-new.Choosing an LS 500 is simple: There's one well-appointed trim level with a handful of options and option packages.

PROS
Library-quiet at all speeds on all roads
Ride quality remains soft, supple and impervious to bad asphalt
Interior features world-class build quality and artful materials

CONS
Touchpad-based infotainment is clever but distracting on the road
Accelerates quick for its size, but the pedal response feels slow, numb
General lack of sportiness cedes advantage to some German rivals

The 2018 Lexus LS 500 sedans don’t reach for the same performance limits as the LC coupes, but there’s ambition in every line.

Interesting exterior
Lots of rear-seat space
Laden with luxury touches
Hybrid’s promised gains

Cons
The V-8’s gone
Lots of intentional drivetrain noise
Bounding air-sprung ride
Steering lacks precision

By: 
thecarconnection.com

Pros
Bold new cabin materials and textures
Well-behaved 10-speed automatic
Ride quality
Steering
24-inch-wide head-up display
Improved gas mileage
Front cross-traffic alert

Cons
Remote Touch touchpad controller
No Apple CarPlay or Android Auto

Could be stronger off the line (LS 500)
Hybrid braking feel (LS 500h)
EV button is pointless (LS 500h)
