TCC’s Bottom Line
If the Acura RLX's weak sales figures are anything to go by, its subtlety is lost on most consumers. The 2017 Lexus GS offers excellent handling, handsome looks, and a variety of powerplants, all at prices generally lower than its German competition. The 2017 Volvo S90 gets all the elegance and style of the brilliant new XC90 crossover, in a sedan package.
