The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.6
9.4
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 Mercedes-Benz S-Class makes an emotional appeal for its claim as the best sedan in the world, and we're feeling it.
