Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2019 Cadillac XTS delivers on Cadillac's traditional strengths with a smooth ride, quiet cabin, a big back seat and classy styling. It's a smart pick if you want a luxury sedan without the sporty pretenses of Cadillac's sportier sedans, such as a stiffer ride.

Pros
Spacious interior has high-quality materials throughout
Offers plenty of standard features
Optional turbo V6 engine provides strong power
Seats are eminently comfortable

Cons
Driver aids remain exclusive to upper trims
Touch-sensitive controls can be a hassle while on the move
Trunk opening is surprisingly narrow for a car of this size
Standard V6 struggles to get this big car moving

The 2019 Cadillac XTS feels purpose-built as an executive chauffeur’s chariot but provides a comfortable and pleasant ride from any seat.

Pros
Plenty of space, front and rear
Strong performance, especially in V-Sport trims
Solid, comfortable ride
Refined, high-end materials throughout, even in base models

Cons
Most safety features and driver aids are optional
Options and trim upgrades drive the price up—fast
Capacitive buttons sometimes confusing to use

The A-class sedan may be the smallest Mercedes-Benz sold in the United States, but it boasts high-tech features and a roomy cabin—more interior passenger space, in fact, than the longer the longer Mercedes-Benz CLA-class. The A-class also has subtle exterior styling that nicely incorporates Mercedes-Benz's new front-end design and focuses on aerodynamic efficiency. Unfortunately, its quest to maximize cabin space and the resulting stubby proportions compromise the overall aesthetic.

Pros
Roomy cabin,
overachieving powertrain,
sporty chassis.

Cons
Bland exterior styling,
ergonomics need work,
signature technology still in beta.

Mercedes takes a second aim at an entry-level sedan with the A-Class, and this time hits closer to the mark.

Pros
Roomy interior for the size
Value pricing
Lots of safety tech
Cutting-edge control interface
Conservative good looks

Cons
Front-drive Mercedes still seems wrong
Safety adds significantly to cost
Just one model and powertrain

By:

The A-Class is an all-new model.Part of the first A-Class generation (for the U.S.) introduced for 2019.In golfing terms, you could say the new 2019 Mercedes-Benz A-Class is a mulligan. Mercedes' previous entry-level sedan, the CLA, was a hook into the rough because of its middling driving experience, mediocre comfort and uninspiring build quality.

Pros
Excellent blend of comfort and performance
Classy interior design and high-quality cabin
MBUX infotainment system works great

Cons
Noticeable amount of wind noise
Some advanced safety features are oversensitive
