The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.4
9.4
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 BMW 7-Series is the Bavarian automaker's flagship model, and it cleverly wraps vast interior space, industry-leading tech, and the expected BMW fleet-footedness.
