Expert reviews: 

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

For 2018, the CTS-V gains an updated infotainment system interface and two USB charge ports for the rear passengers.

PROS
One of the most powerful sedans on the road
Far cheaper than comparably powered performance sedans
Ultra-sophisticated suspension delivers world-class ride and handling
Superior support from optional sport seats

CONS
Ride may be too rough for some
Tech interface may frustrate
Small trunk
Less luxurious cabin than those of competitors

edmunds.com

Pros
Distinctive exterior styling
Powerful, high-tech engines
Stylish interior design
Interior materials quality

Cons

The 2018 Tesla Model S still delivers unequaled battery-electric performance, though its style and safety are beginning to show their age.

Pros
Elegant design
Oh, that acceleration!
Supercharging network still unequaled
Huge touchscreen interface dazzles
Comfortable and quiet

Cons
Cabin remains stark
Top models well into six figures
Continual updates alter features
Rear seat access not the best

By: 
thecarconnection.com

The 2018 Tesla Model S ranked #1 in Luxury Large Cars. Currently the Tesla Model S has a score of 9.3 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 37 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Lightning acceleration and adept handling
Outstanding range
Littered with technology
Spacious seats and large cargo hold

Cons
No Apple CarPlay or Android Auto

By:

Until Tesla came out with its Model S, electric vehicles were never thought of as fully viable replacements for gasoline-powered vehicles, and they didn't have much appeal beyond their potential eco-conscious benefits. Today, though, the 2018 Tesla Model S boasts tremendous acceleration, cutting-edge tech, and an electric range that now resembles that of a gasoline car. It's well-suited for just about any luxury vehicle buyer, not just EV converts.

PROS
Electric range is impressive on higher-end models
Wicked quick acceleration across the board
Liftback design affords abundant cargo space
Advanced technology unavailable from other luxury brands

CONS
Small dealer network means few service centers nationwide
Lacks the luxury polish of some similarly priced sedans
