The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating

8.4
TCC’s Bottom Line
Controversially styled, the 2008 BMW 7-Series still performs like a smaller sedan and carries rear passengers with ease. 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.
