Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

Classic lines? Big V-8 power? Rear-wheel drive? The 2018 Chrysler 300 still has us by the feels.

Pros
Love American style? Look here
Throbby V-8
No-fuss V-6
High-quality high-end cabin
Still competes on in-car tech

Cons

Slim rear-seat leg room

The 2018 Chrysler 300 ranked #4 in Large Cars. Currently the Chrysler 300 has a score of 8.6 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 56 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Strong engines
Roomy seats in both rows
User-friendly infotainment system

Cons
Uneven ride quality
Floaty handling
Lower safety scores than rivals

For 2018, Chrysler has shuffled the 300's features and trim level names, but otherwise the car remains mechanically the same. The V8 engine was previously available across the board, but it is now offered on just two trim levels.

PROS
Cabin is quiet, with an upscale look and feel
Available V8 engine suits the car's personality well
Touchscreen technology interface is easy to use

CONS
V8 engine now limited to just two trim levels
Hard to see out the back because of small rear window and thick roof pillars

The 2018 Audi A8 ranks well among super luxury cars, thanks to its athletic performance and sumptuous interior. Where the A8 falls short is with its outdated infotainment system and small trunk.

Pros
Very comfortable seats and loads of rear-seat legroom
Refined, quiet interior
Powerful, fuel-efficient base engine

Cons
Tiny trunk for a car this size
Outdated infotainment system with some hard-to-reach controls

By:

The 2018 Audi A8 is a luxurious full-size new car that's decidedly old school. It's comfortable and quiet, but lacking new self-driving features.

Pros
Opulent interior
Standard all-wheel drive
Beautiful executive trims for rear seats
Big V-8 is fast
Long wheelbase will please a crowd

Cons
Conservative exterior
Lacking self-driving tech
V-8 is a pricey upgrade

By: 
thecarconnection.com

Overall, though, the 2018 A8 gives up little in terms of comfort, luxury and performance. The 4.0T engine, a 450-horsepower turbocharged V8, is of special note for its ability to sprint from zero to 60 mph in about 4 seconds while matching the 22 mpg combined of the standard V6.

PROS
Impeccably crafted cabin
Engines provide plenty of power with decent efficiency
Responsive steering and cornering for a big sedan
All-wheel drive is standard

CONS
Relatively small trunk
Lacks the latest tech offered by rivals and newer Audis
