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

Unless you really need three rows of seats, the 2018 Subaru Outback is the sensible SUV alternative.

Pros
Swiss Army knife utility
More refined than ever
Lots of safety tech
Comfortable, roomy interior
Good ride and handling

Cons
Optional 6-cylinder is thirsty
Short on high-end luxuries
No EyeSight on base Outback
Touring’s roof rack lacks cross bars

The 2018 Subaru Outback ranked #3 in Wagons. Currently the Subaru Outback has a score of 8.4 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 41 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Standard all-wheel drive
Spacious seats
Lots of cargo space

Cons
Unimpressive base engine

By: 
usnews.com

The 2018 Subaru Outback receives a variety of changes. On the outside, the grille and front and rear fascias have been updated for a more aggressive look, and there are new headlights that feature LED daytime running lights. A new side mirror design reduces interior cabin noise. On the inside, the Outback features a new infotainment system that supports Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, and a new center console and steering wheel design. Premium and higher trims receive contrast stitching on the doors, seats and dash.

PROS
A more spacious and comfortable cabin than those of many rivals
Roof and cargo-loading heights are lower than those of most SUVs
Excellent visibility in all directions
Off-road ability is above average

CONS
Gas and brake pedal feel make it hard to drive four-cylinder smoothly
Acceleration is lackluster, especially with four-cylinder engine
