The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating

8.4
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2009 Audi A8 and A8 L are nimble, refined luxury sedans that still stand out from the crowd. The 2008 Lexus LS 460 is a little lacking in personality and presence, so it’s a good choice for those who want top technology and comforts without attracting undue attention.
