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

Rough-edged limit handling,
lacks luxury-level finish,
on the loud side.

The 2018 Kia Stinger is an all-new model.As stylish as the latest Kias have become, they typically haven't had the performance and handling to match. That all changes with the all-new Kia Stinger.

PROS
Sporty and graceful appearance stands out
Entertaining levels of performance
Refined interior with hatchback utility
Generous warranty coverage

CONS
Ride quality can get a little jittery at times
Limited space for rear-seat passengers
