The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.2
8.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2009 Lexus GS sport sedans wrap edgy performance and top technology into a car that’s very enjoyable to drive but a bit cramped compared to its rivals. The 2008 Audi S6 offers driving thrills that few sedans can match -- and a V-10 heart that would be right at home in a Lamborghini.
