The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.4
7.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2008 Lexus ES 350 is a plush, soft-handling car that would make Buick proud--if Buick still built cars like this. The 2008 Hyundai Azera gives the Korean automaker a legitimate full-size sedan, with plenty of power, features, and room, but not much excitement.
