The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.4
9.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2010 Lexus LS range spans Sport and Hybrid models, but consistently delivers stellar ride and assembly quality-with driving pleasure placed on hold. The 2010 Mercedes-Benz S-Class goes from exclusive to earth-friendly to exotically fast-in just a couple hundred thousand dollars.
