The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.0
8.4
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 2012 Lexus LS sedans combine executive-class interior appointments and long-haul comfort with noteworthy tech features; but driving enjoyment is missing.
