Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2019 Cadillac CTS-V is a great example of getting the best of both worlds, serving as a practical companion during the week and turning into a track-day weapon on the weekend.

Pros
Supercharged V8's powerful acceleration
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

The 2019 Cadillac CTS-V is arguably the greatest American performance sedan ever, and we will miss it dearly when it's discontinued after 2019.

Pros
Immense power
Supercar-like moves
Raucous exhaust note
Sharp steering

Cons
Last-generation fit and finish
Poor crash test scores

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.

Pros
Eye-grabbing interior
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
Operation of driver-aid tech is so-so
Could be stronger off the line (LS 500)
Hybrid braking feel (LS 500h)
EV button is pointless (LS 500h)
