Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2018 Dodge Charger ranked #8 in Large Cars. Currently the Dodge Charger has a score of 7.9 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 53 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Powerful V8 engines
Handles well
Spacious seats
User-friendly infotainment system

Cons
Rivals have more upscale interiors
Driver visibility is limited
Low predicted reliability rating

By:

The 2018 Dodge Charger has aged remarkably well–and if it’s four-door muscle you need, few sedans deliver its performance thrill.

Pros
Terrific V-8/rear-drive fun
V-6 is reasonably powerful and efficient
Ride and handling still impress
Still, an appealing look
Still has better infotainment than any Lexus

Cons
V-8s are heavy and thirsty
Low-buck base interior trim
No V-8/AWD pairing
In the running with the Nissan Frontier as the oldest vehicle on the market

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 Where the A8 falls short is with its outdated infotainment system and small trunk.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Outdated infotainment system with some hard-to-reach controls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: 
usnews.com

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
