The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.4
9.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
The low volumes projected for the 2012 Lexus LS 600h L reflect its conflicted role as the most luxurious model of the LS line and also the greenest; it's a comfortable car with superior fuel efficiency, but does anyone care? The 2012 Bentley Continental doesn't stir the soul the way its two-door siblings do, but it's a powerful, smooth, refined, and eminently luxurious sedan.
