The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.2
8.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
Respectable performance and top technology make the 2010 Lexus GS 350 and GS 460 worthwhile sport sedans, but low points include a cramped backseat and a GS 450h hybrid model that fails to wow for fuel economy. Whether as a sedan or wagon, the 2010 BMW 5-Series is a distinctly sportier, tech-savvy alternative to luxury rivals-without giving up any comfort.
