The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.2
8.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2014 Lexus GS has more distinction and better handling to match improved connectivity; even so, it's still playing catch-up. Brilliance takes many forms in the Audi A6: the diesel-driven TDI, the supercharged A6, or the turbocharged S6 all stand out in ways the sedate body doesn't quite match.
