Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2018 Tesla Model S still delivers unequaled battery-electric performance, though its style and safety are beginning to show their age.

Pros
Elegant design
Oh, that acceleration!
Supercharging network still unequaled
Huge touchscreen interface dazzles
Comfortable and quiet

Cons
Cabin remains stark
Top models well into six figures
Continual updates alter features
Rear seat access not the best

The 2018 Tesla Model S ranked #1 in Luxury Large Cars. Currently the Tesla Model S has a score of 9.3 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 37 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Lightning acceleration and adept handling
Outstanding range
Littered with technology
Spacious seats and large cargo hold

Cons
No Apple CarPlay or Android Auto

Until Tesla came out with its Model S, electric vehicles were never thought of as fully viable replacements for gasoline-powered vehicles, and they didn't have much appeal beyond their potential eco-conscious benefits. Today, though, the 2018 Tesla Model S boasts tremendous acceleration, cutting-edge tech, and an electric range that now resembles that of a gasoline car. It's well-suited for just about any luxury vehicle buyer, not just EV converts.

PROS
Electric range is impressive on higher-end models
Wicked quick acceleration across the board
Liftback design affords abundant cargo space
Advanced technology unavailable from other luxury brands

CONS
Small dealer network means few service centers nationwide
Lacks the luxury polish of some similarly priced sedans

For those needing the performance of a supercar and the space and comfort of a family SUV, the Audi RS Q8 is quite possibly the perfect solution.

Pros
Stunning performance
Glorious engine sound
Superb ride
Interior comfort and space

Cons
48V 'mild hybrid' not a hybrid
Steering lacks a little feel
2.3 tonnes is a lot of weight to hustle through corners

The RS Q8 is a new addition to the Q8 lineup for 2020.
Audi is going after the AMGs and BMW Ms of the world with the new RS version of its Q8 mid-size SUV. The 2020 Audi RS Q8 comes standard with a twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V-8 engine making 591 horsepower and 590 lb-ft of torque, with standard Quattro all-wheel drive to put all that power to the ground and an upgraded suspension and brakes to ensure it handles and stops as well as it goes. It looks a lot more aggressive than the standard Q8, too, thanks to 22-inch wheels, a wider body, and a rear spoiler. It will go on sale in the U.S. sometime in 2020.

2020 Audi RS Q8 will undoubtedly be a huge hit in the segment.With Lamborghini-esque power under the hood and the very latest Audi refinement in the cabin, it brings all the good stuff needed to run against the top competitors from BMW, Mercedes-Benz, and Porsche.

Pros
More aggressive styling
Lamborghini engine under the hood
Impressively quick for a big SUV

Cons
How will it ride compared to the Merc and Bimmer?
Competition isn’t slowing down anytime soon
Might steal a few sales from the Lambo
