The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.6
9.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
The Lexus LS is all about build quality and comfort for the long-haul, though its F Sport trim dials up the fun factor slightly. The 2014 BMW 7-Series is not just luxurious and comfortable, but exceptionally quick and technologically advanced.
