Pros
Upscale cabin

Cons

For 2018, the Cadenza is essentially unchanged. There's only a minor rejiggering of feature content: Namely, the Luxury package now includes a panoramic sunroof and interior LED lighting.

PROS
Well-equipped for the price, especially in the base Premium trim
Vast amount of legroom allows all passengers to stretch out
Generous warranty coverage
Lots of available advanced safety features

CONS
From acceleration to handling, the Cadenza isn't much fun to drive
Trunk is smaller than rivals, and rear seats don't fold down
The ride isn't as composed as in segment leaders
Headroom is a bit tight for tall occupants (especially with sunroof)

The 2018 Audi A7 is a midsize luxury car with a hatchback cargo area (Audi dubs this body style a "Sportback").The Prestige adds ventilated front seats, passenger lumbar adjustment, a head-up display, a corner view parking camera and power-closing doors

PROS
Hatchback offers more cargo space than a sedan's trunk
V6 engine's strong performance
Stunning styling that hasn't aged a bit

CONS
Firm ride with 20-inch wheels
Hefty price premium over comparable Audi A6
Doesn't offer Audi's latest in-car tech
Rear headroom can be tight for taller passengers

By: 
edmunds.com

It's hard to imagine a more complete mid-size luxury car than the 2018 Audi A7, which balances handling and ride quality with gorgeous styling and above average utility.

Pros
Dapper styling
Excellent ride-handling balance
Comfortable interior
Excellent technology
Hatchback utility

Cons
Rear seat a little cramped
Limited steering feedback
Not quite as roomy as its hatchback might suggest
