The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.0
7.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
The Genesis' impressive details and execution make it a pragmatic luxury-car choice, especially in the quick, plush V-6 version. The 2011 Lexus GS sedans are fast, refined, and well-appointed; but low points include a cramped backseat and, for the 450h Hybrid, lackluster fuel economy.
