Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class captivates crossover types with its lush cabin and its plush ride; there’s AMG power on tap if you must.

Pros
Cabinet-grade interior (agency or furniture)
Choose your body
Choose your engine
Burmester audio thrills
Doesn’t cut short on technology

Cons
Expensive safety options
It’s not a Coupe, it’s just less useful
Numb steering (GLC 300)
Rivals have diesel, plug-ins

Two new models join the GLC-Class lineup: the GLC 350e plug-in hybrid and the performance-oriented AMG GLC 63. Heated wipers are now standard, while Apple CarPlay and Android Auto can now be added with the Smartphone Integration package. Mercedes has also renamed some packages to better convey the features added.

PROS
Balance of comfort and performance makes it an appealing daily driver
Elegant design inside and out gives it a true luxury appearance
Plenty of room for adult-size passengers in back
Solid fuel economy from the standard four-cylinder engine

CONS
Feature for feature, it is pricier than many competitors
Technology interface isn't always easy to use

The 2018 Cadillac CT6 has the style and performance to match its German rivals, but is the brand there yet?

Pros
Handsome design
Inexpensive base model
Spacious rear compartment
Capable handling
31-mile plug-in hybrid range

Cons
Firm ride, all the time
Missing a few luxury amenities
Driver's seat won't suit some
No V-8, but who will want a 2.0-liter four?
Can Cadillac market a plug-in hybrid?

By:

The 2018 Cadillac CT6 ranked #4 in Luxury Large Cars. Currently the Cadillac CT6 has a score of 8.4 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 21 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Three powerful engine options
Good fuel economy with base engine
Two rows of spacious seats

Cons
Undersized trunk
Finicky touch screen

By: 
usnews.com

The 2018 Cadillac CT6 can best be described as a full-size luxury sedan, but it's priced like a midsize. If you like the idea of a spacious and upscale luxury sedan with a little Detroit attitude, this Cadillac fits the bill.

PROS
Plenty of rear passenger space for adults
Engaging driving experience for a large luxury sedan
Priced less than many competing sedans

CONS
Lacks the cosseting ride quality offered by competitors
Virtually no unique customizability compared to rivals
No V8 engine offered
